HAEMOBARTONELLA felis is an important cause of haemolytic anaemia in cats. Over the past five years significant advances in the understanding of this organism have been made, which have led to the reclassification of the organism and new methods of diagnosing infection based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis. This article describes these advances and discusses what the implications are when a cat is diagnosed with this infection.
