I'm sorry to hear of this with Linkin. Can you upload a copy of all of his 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 (if you can see such an icon) or by using an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. He sounds as if he's critically anemic in need of a blood transfusion but I can be more accurate for you if I can review his test results.
