I will try to get copies of the blood work from then and yesterday tomorrow.

His lethargy has seemed to come and go tonight..he got one burst of energy about 845 pm for 5 minutes but hasn't moved since. He ate some food at that time. Mostly today if I feed it to him from my hand, but did eat some canned on his own.

thanks again, hopefully will know more in the am


You will want to get some probiotics.

There is a wide "variation" in what is normal on these tests - maybe those older ones will have a clue as to a "trend".

eta: regarding AIHA - if the RBC's are too low, they will want to use pred, in case it's hemolytic anemia of some sort. If this is the case (I don't know what the numbers are, platelets are also important here), then it's really super important that all doses of pred are accompanied by aggressive doses of doxy.

OMG Steph, I just saw this. The DHLPP/Hemolytic anemia is the first thing that popped into my mind as I was reading your message. I'm so thankful you and Dan recognized there's a problem and jumped on it right away. You're in my thoughts and prayers that he has a quick recovery.

Please give him a big hug (Allie too)!!!

I don't think you're the least bit crazy. It definitely sounds like there's *something* going on w/him that needs vet attention. It's even more worrisome when a dog shows signs of illness or pain because of their ability to hide this from humans.

When your child is sick, they can verbalize and tell you what's wrong. I don't know of any kids who hide being sick - it's a day home from school <g> but by the time you see something in a dog it could already be more serious than had you been able to tell sooner.

I hope whatever it is turns out to not be serious and fully treatable. Please keep us posted. Hugs and puppy slobber to you and Kelso.

Oh Steph - my heart dropped too... You're right on top of this, so that is huge. Sending lots of good and healing thoughts to Kelso. Will anxiously look for udpates. Hugs to you and Dan too - it's so stressful when you don't know yet what's going on... hugging

Ray had a reaction to either his vaccines or to the ProHeart 6 injection way back when and that was bad enough. All the best to Kelso for a full, quick recovery from whatever is going on! hugging
