I know this isn't chicken related....I just need somebody...anybody... My dog is very ill.... We can't afford any of the treatments...and when it comes to your animals....they won't accept payments...they need it all now. Since she was a puppy she has had a weak immune system...this has caused her to have skin problems her entire life. She hasn't been losing hair since we switched her to holistic dog food though...so that's good. She's just kinda greasy and stinky. She gets regular oatmeal baths...eats fish oil tablets. She became sick on Sunday morning. She wouldn't eat breakfast, she wouldn't eat dinner. She was very lethargic. Later in the night she got very drooly. This morning, she couldn't control her hind quarters well, she kept slipping. We took her to the vet, found out her red blood cell levels are at 6% and they should be between 20-40%. Her white cells are attacking what red cells are left... We thought first it may have been a plant in our yard, but all the other dogs eat it and they always eat the grass and have all been fine. We swept the yard anyway...found some things, but the vet said that wasn't the issue. They said it's her poor immune system and that she's at that age where these things start becoming more apparent. She's about 8 or 9....we got her as "pup" She wasn't fully grown yet, but she wasn't tiny. The first year of her life, she had 8 homes....when she came to us, if we said anything loudly like "Hey, dinner is done!" from across the house, she would drop to the floor and pee. Now she is alpha and bullet proof. She keeps these dumb boys in line. Anyway...she's anemic and she refuses to eat or drink. She hasn't been able to stand up for more than 5 seconds for the last 5 hours. She falls over instantly. It's horrible. We couldn't afford a blood transfusion or anything more extensive than an xray. The vet here doesn't have an ultrasound machine, so couldn't do that... They gave us some Prendisone. She has to take 3 1/2 pills every twelve hours. I got home with her, started looking online for holistic treatments. I went to the store, bought some yogurt, liver, spinach, brewers yeast, echinacea, acidophilus and made a food mixture with rice and eggs. She wouldn't eat it...just like the dog food...so I pureed it and fed her via syringe. She has drank some water here and there....I try to make sure she gets plenty......I feel bad forcing food, pills and water down her throat, but it has to be done. I'm just wondering...even though this isn't chicken related...if anyone has any ideas on things that could help. I've had her since I was 13, I'm 20 now....I'd like to help her as she's helped me.... She's been there for all the boyfriends...all the drama...she's a great dog. If anyone has any input, it would be greatly appreciated. Here she is with Weezer, she's on the right.
