On July 2nd, we told you about Yana, a 3 week old kitten so infested with parasites that she required a blood transfusion. When baby kittens are anemic, they are weak, don't eat, their body temperatures are low, and they can fade very quickly. A blood transfusion delivers life-sustaining oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues and provides potentially life-saving replenishment of the lost blood volume, preventing circulatory collapse and death.
Here are the before & after pictures...
