That's an interesting article!

Kelso is very sick

It is hard for me to keep it together right now but I want you guys to know as you have always been there for our dogs

His elbow has blown up overnight, when I saw it I thought it was from the IV he pulled out this morning, the vet thinks he has a quickly spreading infection in that area. Possibly other places, urine/blood, possibly sepsis if it is in his blood. His elbow was fine yesterday which is why she is concerned as it moved fast. She is also worried about his low plts - not sure if it is the autoimmune stuff or the infection doing this, but the infection is what has to be stopped at this point

he will not be coming home, staying in the icu for IV antibiotics/fluids. She is going to do all she can of course, surgery not likely as he will lose that leg she said if she did that. We will be with him, I took him his blanket as well

I have never really known what this grief feels like racking your body for your dog and best friend, Kelso is my first puppy, and own dog. I would not wish it on my worst enemy.

thank you again, your thoughts and prayers are comforting

One of my worst fears for him, I cannot express how sorry and worried I am for your boy.

I can say, the combination of doxy and cipro have been a lifesaver for Max. What are they using for kelso? I was reading an artical last night about cipro in some rickettsia infections, so we may have stumbled upon something here.
