CREA=1.4 mg/dl (within normal range)
GLU=120 mg/dl (within normal range)
HCT= 46.2 % (just out of normal range 24.0-45.0, should I be
HGB= 14.2 g/dl(alittle high but just within normal range)
MCHC=30.7 g/dl (alittle low but within range, alittle better than
WBC= 7.8 x10\9/L (within normal range, alittle better than in
still abit lowish?)

His weight is 4.90 kilo, he had no fever while at home, but at the
vets his temperture shot up to 39!! His sister recently died of
Lymphoma cancer and they are both FeLV and this cat 'Silver chan'
has HCM, but is well at the moment. Last week his stool was abit
strange, or so I thought, at first it seemed normal, then the last
was a different colour tan colour, and the last bit was like
the day before he had eaten chicken bones, does that mean anything
Also sometimes after he has eaten , he seems to belch!1 but not all
the time,and usaully only once after afew minutes after eating. If
anyone can give me any advice, I`d be very happy!! Hugs

- You don't say if the bones were raw or cooked. Yes, cooked bones (not just
chicken bones) can splinter and cause serious problems. But usually, raw
chicken bones are OK for cats, if they are used to eating them.
If your cat seems in pain, then I'd go straight to the vet and have them
check for a bone fragment in the digestive system.

- My cat only eats raw minced chicken bones and or necks once a week and
he doesn`t seem to be in any pain, but I will tell my vet this to check
it out, just in case!! I do watch my cats at feed time and haven`t
noticed anything out of the ordinary. hugs Amanda , Silver chan,
