My dog, Dixie, got sick two weeks ago, took her to the vet. She was not eating for over two days, very weak and looked sad in the eyes. He looked her over, sent her home with antibiotics. Two days later, she was not getting better, got blood work done, inconclusive of what was causing her illness, but her red cell count was low. No transfusion needed, and gave her steroid pills to take. The next week, was switched on her antibiotic and then was seen on yesterday. Her blood drop showed a slight improvement, up 2 points, but at least not going down. She is 13 years old and been together for 12, a rescue for both, from Wayside Waifs for those from MO might have heard of it. They do great work. But she is eating a little better, strength is coming back and life and sparkle back into her loving eyes. That is why I was off for the last two weeks. I will keep you all posted as she progresses back to health. She brought me back from my dark period and now I am bringing her back from being so sick. Hugs for everyone today.
