HeredityPyruvate kinase (PK) deficiency manifests as an hemolytic anemia of variable severity with a strong regenerative response. Affected cats can have a normal life span, only intermittently have anemia, and do not seem to develop either osteosclerosis or liver failure. The clinical signs of disease reflect the anemic status of the animal and include exercise intolerance, weakness, heart murmur and splenomegaly.
