Feline Infectious Anemia (FIA) is an infectious disease found in felines, causing anemia and other symptoms. The disease is caused by a variety of microscopic parasite that attaches to the red blood cells and destroys them, causing low red blood cell count, most commonly Mycoplasma haemofelis (which used to be called haemobartonella). Haemobartonella and eperythrozoon species were reclassified as mycoplasmas. Coinfection often occurs with other infectious agents, including: feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), ehrlichia species, anaplasma phagocytophilum, and Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum.
