I wrote this whole thing out and lost it...now I had to do it again. I thought I would just post as a group post only and get a response....Hmmmm...
I am feeling very down today. My doggie Shadow is very sick. (she doesn't act it though!) She went to the groomers last week and came home stressed out and urinated pure blood. Rushed her to the vet. Many blood tests sent to the mainland. Just got the results. He blood platlets are supposed to be between 125 to 200 and hers are 24! We take her back tomorrow for a follow up. Everything seems normal now...she's on steroids and antibiotics but they can't figure out what's wrong. The vet said keep her quiet because if she gets hurt she could bleed to death because her blood is not clotting....anyone heard of this? I know you all aren't vets ...just wanted to know if anyone heard of this....(my kid's haven't given me any grandkids so I "saved" this english cocker spaniel 2.5 years ago......I really love my doggie. )

Doggie's vet just called and said doggie's blood platlets are up to 211,000 (normal is 164,000 to 510,000 and hers was at 24 last week) Needless to say, on steroids, antibiotics and pepcid...she is a psychotic hungry thirsty animal who keep me up at night because she can't sleep! Follow up in two weeks....Anyway, she's a little better but have to watch. Vet believes stress sets off this thing that attacks her blood platlets...
