I'm actually looking for a vet near me( michigan) that

I'm actually looking for a vet near me( michigan) that specializes in IMT for a consult. Love my vet, not changing but trying to locate a vet that i can schedule a consult with to discuss her treatments .... any recommendations?JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?Customer: do you know any internists specializing in this near me? I only want a consult ? She def has IMT ( i see the labs) but I feel there is an infection( even tick born but panel is negative) Will a vet have an appt with just me as I don't want anything more than a second set of eyes and opinion?JA: There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Tess is almost 2- pit/ mastiff mix- spayed female- no recent vaccines- went to emergency for high fever and lathargic- labs showed low platelets- no bruising- tick panel negative- treatment is doxy- 100mg Bid- prednisone- 20Mg Bid and Imuran every other day. Platelets increased somewhat ( started 7/5 ) but now RBC's low and WBC's high. Everytime Doxy was stopped, she seemed sick again- Do you think the Doxy should be increased ? Also, how accurate are tick panels if taken after medications were already started ?JA: I'm sure Tess feels you are doing your best. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tess?Customer: Does he agree with meds? Does he think Doxy dose should be higher? ( she is around 80 # ) My gut tells me i gotta kill whatever infection she has now and then the IMT treatment will fall into place. Only been since July and I know its a long process but the vet and I are already deciding to stay on Prednisone for life due to her body's stubborness to respond quickly to treatment. As of right now, they do not feel this is Evans syndrome and it was explained to me why but I wouldn't even know how to explain that.

Hi....I caught my 3 year old Pit in the last gulps of swallowing a roll of clorox disinfectant wipes last night. So far, she doesn't seem to be showing any signs of distress.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Bella. She tends to eat any soft object she can get her mouth on. She does it quickly. She spent the night at the vet a few months ago when she couldn't keep food down and wasn't eliminating. The following morning on her morning potty outing with the vet, she pooped out a towel.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bella?Customer: She's in great health otherwise.
