my dog is a lab/pit mix he got hit by a pick up yesterday and i took him to the local vet his hip was dislocated and the vet put the hip back in and did a figure 8 sling he is very wobbly naturally but when I get him home he has drank water a few times but he wont get up to get it once i got him in his crate he doesnt want to come out urine is still bloody and the vet said he could still take a turn for the worse there is abdominal bruising and swelling and I am concerned there is a little more internal damage an xray was done and nothing showed up what is your opinion on the matterJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: not really I am wondering about his disposition it seems he doesnt want to even try yet he is able to move or adjust himself in the crate and even though wobbly he did make it in the house on the leash. but that is all and he has not eaten since yesterday and only had two cups of water today which I had to bring to him and i will tell you he is a rescue dog

He has been on Azithromycin and prednisone. He was running a high fever with swollen glands. We finished the dose of antibiotics and are just finishing the steroids this week. His glands are still swollen(not as much). He is eating and drinking but is gurgling. I keep telling him to bring it up and spit it out but he doesn't. I know there is a possibility of cancer but before I allow my mind to go there I thought I would research blockages and other possible causes, even possibly a toothache? Any suggestions?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Duke, I think he is around 6 but am not sure as he is a rescue. He is a great dane, with wobblers, cherry eye and some deformity in his lower extremities. hE'S lost about 15 lbs in the last 6 months and of course has no muscle tone due to wobblers.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Duke?Customer: We ran blood work but were unable to determine presence of cancer due to steroids and he bleeds alot on his feet because of the deformities so his white blood cell count was elevated.

My schnauzer had pre-dental labwork which showed platelet

My schnauzer had pre-dental labwork which showed platelet count of 79. All other labs including bleeding times were normal. X-ray was normal. Vet hasn't offered any treatment at this time. Is this a dangerous platelet level? And what are the next steps that I should take? Oh and he also had a slightly low thyroid level. I'm not sure if this is related. Vet thinks not bc he isn't obese or lethargicJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: FitzJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fitz?Customer: Not that I can think of
