    Default Anemia in buns?

    Lily has been strange for some time and not behaving as her usual herself.

    Took her to the vets and he did an xray and it came back all clear.
    He did some bloods too and the resutls show she's a little anemic.
    Has anyone heard of this and know of any possible causes?

    Please help

    Lily a piece of my heart died the day you left for rainbow bridge - until we meet again I will cherish the memories within my heart. I love you chica xxx

    Love Mummy Karen xxx

    It would depend on what type of anaemia, regenerative or non-regenerative ?

    Possible causes of regenerative anaemia include:
    Blood loss from wounds
    Severe parasite infestation
    Internal blood loss eg blood passed in wee or poo
    Blood loss from a tumour
    Lead Toxicity
    Bleeding disorders such as haemophilia (mainly effects Belgian Hares)
    Thymoma and Lymphosacrcoma ( 2 types of cancer)

    Possible causes of non-regenerative anaemia include:
    Chronic disease such as Dental Disease, abscesses,ear infections,respiratory tract infections, Sore hocks, Kidney Disease, chronic stress.............................
