Well, crap....I looked up, and this was spurting from his nose, the pictures are after I got the bleeding stopped:





It was spurting from a pinhole at the tip of his nose, and very difficult to stop. I finally got it stopped. I have an herb here, that was for his fistula, that they used to use on battlefields to stop bleeding. I mixed some with water and put it on the edge of his nose, and gave him the rest internally. It's also used for hemangiosarcoma, I was saving it for an emergency, I only have 8 capsules.

I noticed that it was dripping more blood these past several days after starting the doxy. I have no idea what the mechanism in, but I'm a bit afraid.

One step at a time.

Oh, Lisa, that is really scary. Is it possible he is just dehydrated (trying to be an optimist here)?

hugging to you. My biggest fear is mixing all of these meds. One things just seems to lead to another. teary

Thank you Michael, me too frown

Ruth, I worry too about all the drugs. The bleeding, I think this is just part of the disease process and it's affect on the blood vessels. Makes me wonder if some of the hypovelemia really is from blood loss seeping out of the veins. Weird vascular stuff and weird bleeding is part of some nasty tick diseases, so it may be part of whatever he has going on now.

It's probably true that the pred is keeping his platelets from going low and keeping him from bleeding out somewhere.

I'm just really worried about him, and he keeps jumping up and barking at everything since this happened. I told him I'd kennel him if he didn't settle, so he sulked over and got up on the couch. Hope he doesn't forget, he's going to give me a heart attack.

So glad the carpet is at the end of it's life. Blood spray is a b*tch to clean up - but spraying it with water, and quite a bit coming off.

Woodreb, good thoughts are always welcome and helpful!

Thanks for the link Ruth, I'll hop over there and look, I think I've got about 90% of it, but would sure like to get the rest too!

Just thinking about how glad I am that I was home. My gosh, that was about 30 second worth of blood there. I had to hold his nose toward the sky (very uncomfortable for his neck), with a towel on the tip of his nose, and he kept fighting me. I didn't think to elevate it at first and it wouldn't stop or slow.

Glad I haven't showered yet, I have blood splatter all over my hands and arm and toes frown none on my white shirt? How the heck does that happen rofl


I sure wish you could help too Ruth. I guess, now that I have focus, I will have to pull all my experience in the last 11 yrs on the tick list and also from the forums and ask for inspiration to get us through this. It really is from everyone's experiences that I have got him this far, and everyone will help me, hopefully, get him past the critical corners crossedfingers

All that finger and paw crossing has to do some good, thank you Barb and Dante!

Patti, thank you, I hope they are easier too!

I called the vet that originally prescribed that herb and, of course, she is out for two weeks.

I am looking real hard at this herb:

Don't quite understand the "red pill" thing, sounds a bit like The Matrix...
