To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sunday, August 1, 2010, 3:30 PM A week ago I thought it was over because he was so lethargic and anemic-the vet visit on 7/23 showed on the in-office test a PCV 18.5% and TP 4.2 (I'm not totally sure what the TP is). His gums were pale, almost white and he was barely eating-it comes on so fast. We started him on Procrit 3 injections a week, doxy 2x a day and an iron supplement capsule 1x a day. Interferon 2x a day. We also gave both he and Rosie their LTCI injection-it was 4 weeks from the last one. His lab CBC came back with RBC 3.52 HGB 5.1 and HCT 22.5 Lymphocytes 5. He has also lost a little over a pound since January, but isn't thin. A week later on 7/29 we took him in for an in-office test (Thursday) his PCV 23% and TP 5.0-he is acting like his old self again-racing me into the kitchen, standing on his hind legs and grabbing the cabinet door with his huge paws and banging the door until he gets a treat! He is back to jumping to the top of the bookcase in the spare room-the eagle is back! He is still resting more than usual-but isn't wiped out like before-if he hears something interesting, he just has to see what it is-Mr Nosy! I am hopeful that he continues to improve-I don't know what triggers the anemia, in January his HCT 39.5 HGB 14.4 and RBC 10.85. He is so good natured-you can give him his shot and pills and he still follows like a puppy and never gets difficult to doctor.
