Dear Michael,Today I am writing in regards ***** ***** of the dogs curated by our shelter. She is no particular breed dog, annually vaccinated 3.5 years old. Last year she developed a coughing which instigated dirofilliariosis tests where the first one came negative and the second one positive. Later on she started to lose weight while retaining the same appetite, her stool and urine with no pathology. Another day her curator has noticed a nasal bleeding (light blood and plasma) which would not stop. She consequently was treated with doxycycline and prednisolone which seemed to ease the symptoms, but not entirely relieve it - every time she is getting IM injection the spot is bleeding longer than normal. Her weight is also quite low. Her biochemical analysis from the last two weeks is attached for your review. Our local vet failed to diagnose or even direct us towards the possible pathology. Maybe you'll be able to advise what direction we should pursue to help Ani to feel better. Thank you beforehand,Maria Baranova,The Kind House
