I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sausha. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

A little more information will help me, since I can't see and examine her.

When they pulled off some fluid, was it analyzed to see what kind of fluid it is?

Can you post her blood test results here?

When you say the red and white counts were off, were they higher or lower than normal?

This is an Information Request, to help me with your question. Rebecca
