Pancytopenia: Full list of cat food brands being recalled amid the growth of rare disease infecting pets.

James Russell from the British Vet Association spoke to LBC's Nick Ferrari and explained some of the dangers of Pancytopenia.

The conversation comes after more than 440 cats have been recently diagnosed with a rare and unexplained illness which has killed 284 of them.

He told LBC the condition can cause cats to suffer from: Low energy/weakness, pale gums, fever, collapse, no appetite, bleeding from the gums or blood in vomit or urine.

Pancytopenia, which affects the blood, is often fatal for cats.
