A profound bone marrow response is commonly witnessed using the Veterinary Immune Tabs for cases of bone marrow dysfunction. Pokey response in less than 2 weeks we found quite amazing and very satisfying for her owners. I've had several other cases with such a marked positive bone marrow response. See Smokey, Shyby & Maze in the feline case studies section for other examples of bone marrow response.
