I have a 9 - 10 year old female Pomeranian (rescued 2 years

I have a 9 - 10 year old female Pomeranian (rescued 2 years ago). She has had some problems with acid reflux, severe allergies, etc. Two weeks ago I thought the groomer had bruised her belly because she had red/purple spots. When I got her to a vet her platelet count was at zero. The next day they had her up to 7. Then two days later she was at 150 and they let me bring her home. Two days later she was back to 30. She has been in the hospital for five days now, and it is up to 94. She is currently being treated with Prednisone, Famotidine and Atopica. My concern and question is, shouldn't she have been responding faster? According to the vet, she does not have cancer, no ticks (we live in Las Vegas), no vaccines have been given to her in years. What do you think?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Pomeranian? I'll do all I can to help.Customer: I think I put most of it in. I believe the diagnosis was THROMBOCYTOPANIA.

I adopted a 2-3 year old Great Pyrenees on Thursday

I adopted a 2-3 year old Great Pyrenees on Thursday afternoon. He ate and drank water around 5 pm on Thursday, but has not drank any water since then. He also has only eaten a small amount of food two times since then, and he threw that food up both times. While the lack of eating is a problem too, my main concern is that he has not had any water for over 40 hours and may be pretty dehydrated at this point, but he does not want to drink any water.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the Great Pyrenees will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Great Pyrenees?Customer: He got neutered last week, on Monday I believe, and he is heart worm positive.

My 5 year old border collie is very restless, stetching out

Hi Pearl. My 5 year old border collie is very restless, stetching out her front legs, lifting her tail, pacing, wanting to eat grass and doesn't want to eat. I'm guessing she must be having tummy problems. My vet's answering service only notifies them of emergencies and I was looking for something that I could give her that might give her some relief. Thank you.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: I don't think it is her foot, but I will look.JA: What is the Border collie's name?Customer: MaddieJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Maddie?Customer: No, just the restless pacing and stretching.
