I took my beloved dog to the vet today thinking she's just got a little bug, and it turns out she could very well have IHMA, a disease where her red blood cells are attacked. She's extremely anemic and has so little energy. She didn't even want to go for a walk. I've been so sick lately too (now I probably have pneumonia) and I wish I had seen her sickness sooner.
She may die, and they're even talking about a blood transfusion.
She's on a very aggressive treatment plan with steroids and Danazoll (the human stuff- I had to got to Walgreens and pick it up). Everything depends on how she responds to the meds- and what the second round of blood tests show.
She is my baby, my girl, my walking partner, my best friend... I can't imagine my life without her in it. She has been the best dog I've ever owned.
I am in tears....
