My dog Allie, may have just turned a corner because her blood count is up to 30 now. When we first took her in her red blood cell count was only 6. She has been on prednisone and doxycyline. After one month we added 3 other different antibiotics: ampicillion, baytril, and flagyl. I also added milk thistle to help her liver. She is not out of the woods yet but I am feeling hopeful that she will pull through.
If your dog is anemic too, I believe that prednisone is the key to keeping her alive.
Let me know how she is doing. I will pray for your dog too!!!View Thread
Could you please let me know what happened to your dog? My dog also has severe anemia and enlarged spleeen. Doctor said she needs blood transfusion for $1,000 which i cant afford. Instead of putting her to sleep yesterday, we are giving her antibiotics and predisone and will see if she starts to improve. So far, they do not think it is cancer, and there are no masses. Any input would be appreciated.View Thread
