Anemia is a common condition in older cats which is often associated with chronic kidney disease resulting in decreased levels of endogenous erythropoetin.1 There is no approved veterinary drug for management of anemia in cats.

KindredBio continues to enroll cats in the pilot field study of epoCat for the control of non-regenerative anemia in cats.
