Hi I've just been told my Yorkie has some blood in a poo sample. His red blood count has been between 22% and 24% but although on steroids he it is not going up. I'm just wondering what the next best procedure would be. he is eating fine he just gets more tired.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Hi name is ***** ***** he is 10 years old. They first thought he maybe attacking his red blood cells now they think he may have a slight bleed internally. he had had x rays which showed nothing and a camera through his mouth and nothing. he is a mystery.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: when it first began we he had a very watery mouth, it kept dripping for two days then an upset stomach
then was sick, that's when we first took him to the vet . He had a sickness injection then he seemed to pick up, the a few weeks later all the lethargy started and then when we found out his red cells are low.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
