Food recall and Pancytopenia in cats

There has been an urgent recall of certain dry cat foods, following a rise in a rare condition called pancytopenia. Sadly this condition is proving fatal in many cases. Investigations are still ongoing as to what the cause may be.

The list of recalled foods can be found here.

For the latest on this, keep an eye on the Royal Veterinary College website – they are collating information about the affected cats.

My cat has been eating a recalled food brand, what shall I do?
Do not feed your cat any more of this food. Please contact the product manufacturers for brand specific questions. Further details can be found here.

You could discuss with us whether you would like a blood test performed looking at the levels of red and white blood cells and platelets in your cat’s blood, as decreases in these levels are seen if your cat is affected with pancytopenia. Please don’t hesitate to call us for advice.

My cat is ill and I think it might have this problem, what should I do?
Please contact us so we can examine your cat and discuss further investigation as necessary. You may also want to contact the product manufacturers for brand specific questions, if your cat has been eating one of the recalled diets.

To book an appointment, or get advice, give us a call on 01803 606059 (Torquay) or 843836 (Paignton).
