Amazing that you maintain your sense of humor...that's a great coping strategy. Any of all these things hit platelets? Well, even if they do, it may be better to take the treatment and have a nose bleed.

This balancing is so demanding-you've got all the support I can type.

I hope the day gets calmer.

Took a soak in the tub, and tried to let Calgon take away all my worries sunburn (anyone remember that commercial????)

Yes, everything seems to effect everything, and I'm thinking that same think about treatment and nosebleed. Part of his historic disease process includes platelet problems. His last bloodwork was good, too good for him in fact, so I don't understand it. This is why I think he probably has to keep some pred in the mix.

That herb I just used to stop the bleeding today.

I miscounted, there are 8 foil wraps, 2 capsules each, so 16 capsules, and the mysterious red pill.

I spent hours last night looking for herbs to help with vascular structure (even looked up a bunch of varicose vein stuff). I wonder if this is the universe's way of sending me a message.....

Since giving the herb, he has only panted open mouthed for a bit when walking upstairs and right after. Not after barking, walking, waiting for b-fast (which turned out to be lunch), walking down, etc. I don't remember this being the case in a long time.

I was hoping to contact that vet about dosing instructions, perhaps I can find something about dogs somewhere.

Poor Maxie and poor you, Lisa. I really wish I had answers for you. I can say that 50/50 vinegar/water does a pretty good job of getting blood stains out of carpet. Especially if they haven't set in yet. I quicked Risa's nails a couple times when we live in Montana (in an apartment with light tan carpets) and it cleaned the stain up real fast. Wish I had more input to help you with Max, though. Sending good thoughts and strength westward.

Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear about Max's health problems. Prednisolone can have sooooo many side effects especially bruising of the skin. Sending good vibes and special thoughts to both of you with hugs and kisses from Sean. hugging

Thank goodness you were there hugging

Interesting about the herb, it says to keep away from animals and children yet the reviews are about how it helped dogs!

Wishing you all the strength to keep finding answers for sweet Max hugging

I'm so glad you were home, Lisa.

Would it help at all to send the pictures to the vet?

I have no words of wisdom - I just want Max to magically be OK and for you to be able to relax and just enjoy him. hugging

And by the way - yes, I certainly remember the "calgon, take me away' commercials.

Yes, I am soooooo glad that I was home when this happened. I found some more blood in a different room - it looks like this was going to happen at some point. I will see the acu vet on Tuesday and show her the pics, but the one that originally gave me the herbs is the one that is partially retired, I will see if I can get a hold of her.

Amazing about the carpet, just soaking with water and blotting has seemed to get it all???? Sure didn't expect that, but it certainly wasn't environmentally friendly - I used a LOT of paper towels! I will remember about the vinegar and water though Jamie.

Tammy, if this herb works, it might be a good thing in the first aid box for Jarie....

SRM, yes, the pred frown , please thank Sean for the good wishes wub

bianca, I didn't catch that about the animals, so contradictory thinking

I was going to ask you more about that, but didn't think it would be appropriate on your thread. But definitely keep Jarie in mind for that. It wouldn't hurt for me to have it on hand and try. We've had a few bleeding episodes the past 2 months, minor, but minor is major for her.
