Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Taylor. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. What autoimmune disease was she diagnosed with? There are many, affecting the blood cells, skin, kidneys, and glands. I see she has a high white blood cell count; do you know her red blood cell count? It will help me to know what tests (apart from the blood counts) were done so far. If she has a high white cell count, and responded at first to antibiotics, this could be an infection. I would probably start her back on antibiotics. Getting back with your first veterinarian for more antibiotics and testing might be a good idea, but getting a second opinion is always a good idea if your dog is not doing well. Let me know what else I can answer and help with and how she is doing.
