sick lil sydney.

We were back at the vet this morning to review Syd’s lab results with Dr. Bracken. Sadly, our little lady has Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia. Huh? Basically, her body is attacking her own red blood cells and she’s really anemic right now (which explains why she’s pale, has no energy or appetite).

She started steroid treatments today and we’ll be back at the vet tomorrow at 8:30a.m. for more lab work to see if her red blood cells and platelets are increasing or decreasing – and we’ll go from there. We’re hopeful the steroid treatments and antibiotics will do the trick. She actually ate a few bites of food today – a big improvement from the past couple of days.┬áThink good thoughts for her…
