Animals that have feline distemper have low platelet and hematocrit counts.
Reduced blood cell volume (hematocrit) is also considered anemia.
Newborns may also have low red blood cell volume (hematocrit or Hct) if they were born by cesarean section.
Blood cell volume (hematocrit) may also be reduced in some anemias, but not necessarily in iron deficiency anemia.
