Champ is anemic from his kidney disease.
Initially, he got Lixotinic (0.5ml) once a day and
an injection of Epogen (0.06ml) three times a
week. He no longer gets the Lixotinic and only
gets an Epogen injection once a week. Next week,
after further bloodwork, Doc will decide whether
to discontinue the Epogen injections.

Has your female been spayed? Is she a breeder?
If not, IMHO, the best treatment would be a spay.

If she has been spayed, I think you should be
looking an an ovarian remnant or adrenal disease.

What is your vet recommending in all of this? I
saw from your post that she had been at the vet
but didn't understand what your vet thinks the
problem is and what is being recommended.
