I dont know if she ate something bad there in the woods. the vet said ot could be 1) tick disease, 2) poisoning 3)auto immune disease. the blood test says there is no infection but it is something that dilutes the blood, makes it more liquid her tick wounds open and close, bleed a little bit and then stop for a while the vet gave her; a coagulant, prednisone, antibiotics, and something against ticks. He said the bleeding should stop in 12 hours, that is tomorrow at 4 am, i live in israel my whatsapp is +972 ****** why does it say I payed kr203, what;s that? ...

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! Please give me a few moments to type my response to your question!

I would definitely worry about the immune mediated with this history (or ticks) and if on steroids the blood in the urine or urinating blood might not improve right away. I had an IMHA dog (immune mediated) who did this for weeks after beginning steroids.

As long as a urine culture has already been done as well to ensure there are no secondary factors it's something you have to give a little more time to unfortunately. I know how challenging it is to watch them go through this but it sounds like your veterinarian is doing an amazing job working on getting you answers and treating Inga appropriately

I hope this helps but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
