I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a copy of her complete test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy of the results at home but his vet should be able to give you one which you could scan into your computer and give me the link or you can photograph the page(s) and upload the images by using the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or by using an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. What symptoms prompted her having diagnostics performed?

In general, leukopenia (low white blood cells) and neutropenia (low numbers of the white blood cell neutrophil) occur infrequently in dogs because they have a large bone marrow storage pool of neutrophils. Leukopenia indicates a poor prognosis. Neutropenia is usually caused by excessive tissue consumption of neutrophils during severe inflammation and/or reduced bone marrow production.
