Auto immune disease in the dog - start here if you aren't sure. / IMT
« on: January 10, 2018, 08:39:01 AM »
Hello members Iíve lost a dog to IMHA Oct . 1 I was  and still am devastated . I spent  almost  $5000. trying to save him. He was a six-year-old male Shih Tzu.Just yesterday I brought his mother in to the vet  And she has been diagnosed with IMT. Someone recommended me to join this group so I can try to find some kind of answers as of this morning she was eating. Sheís not taking any food for me right now. They did some kind of chemo IV to try to stimulate her body to make platelets . Sheís also taking prednisone and doxycycline . I had some kind of hope when she was eating now I feel like Iím going down the same path that I had with her son. I donít know if I should spend thousands of dollars again only to lose another one. This is so devastating I canít believe that Iíve had one dog after the other come down with these autoimmune diseases. I was hoping the prednisone would stimulate her appetite, But that doesnít seem to be happening at the moment. Any advice would be appreciated. I feel  from what  Iíve been reading that these dogs need to be hospitalized until their body  Begins to function on its own. I was so hoping that maybe this could turn around, without having to spend again thousands of dollars again only to lose another . Iíd like to  hear experiences Of what I can or should do. Please Help!
