Another of the forum pups was diagnosed as having IMHA this afternoon. I am not at liberty to give out personal information (it is not one of mine) but PLEASE pray for another one of our own who is just starting this horrific roller coaster (trust me, been there and it is horrific).

If you do not know what IMHA is go to the Caring a For a Your Cocker section and read up. It is vital you know what to look for, what to ask and how to proceed.

UPDATE....Marsha Ok's dog DeeDee is holding her own. She is still in doggy ICU but her numbers as of this morning were stable about 30 (today's numbers not in to me yet). She has had two transfusions and a hyperbaric chamber treatment to this point. She will be in the hyperbaric. Hamner again today. She is still not eating or drinking but did take water by syringe. She is slightly less yellow and wagged her tail for Marsha last night. Roger and Marsha are taking turns visiting her. She is still a very sick pup so please keep the prayers, good thoughts, positive energy going.

Sending BIG prayers as requested. :hp

As most of you know, we lost our Moonbeam when she contracted this horrific disease. It was a six month fight and she passed from ear cancer which was brought on by the IMHA.

Vickie, I know that you are giving our forum friend terrific advice and all the knowledge that they will need to act quickly to get very informed care.

As Vickie stated, if you are a new forum member and don't know about this disease, you MUST go to the "Caring for your Cocker" section of this forum and read, read, read up! This disease hits within hours and time is of the essence to save your beloved Cocker's life!!!!!

Again, sending my prayers for a full recovery.

Dawn

Hopefully, Vickie you will be able to keep us informed..... :cry

thank you for your prayers.
Roger and I are stunned and very numb right now. DeeDee just had her first blood transfusion. I am praying that she will respond to all of the treatments and the prayer.
Thank you all
Marsha

I am so sorry to hear about DeeDee and hoping that the blood transfusions will soon kick in and start to heal her little body. Please know that I will keep you all in my prayers.

You can do this DeeDee!

I posted about my fight with this last summer and my boy pulled through so don't lose hope and don't forget to take care of yourself too. This is an exhausting disease for both the humans and the dogs to deal with and DeeDee will need you to be strong. {hugs}

DeeDee, Marsha, and family, thinking of you at this time. It is certainly a tough battle to be fought and has so many ups and downs!! Parker had IMHA a few years ago and if it wasn't for this forum I would never have known what to do and how imperative time is when treating this disease. He still remains on a very low dose of medication for the rest of his life. I am constantly checking his gums to make sure they are pink!! Positive thoughts coming your way!! Please keep us updated when you have time. :hp

Prayers for DeeDee and her family. This is such a scary disease, but so many forum friends have found success fighting it!

Oh Marsha, I am so sorry to see this. Being a part of a family that loves her and will do all they can, will give DeeDee a fighting chance. We all have come to fear and hate this disease. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. (((HUGS)))!

Adding my huge prayers for a good outcome. I am so sorry you have to go thru this horrible disease. I am one who fought the battle and lost, but others have beat this. Just remember this is a one step forward, 2 steps back disease so do not give up, and the transfusions are to buy time until the meds kick in. We are all here for you so post questions, progress, anything you need to anytime.

For any newcomer to the forum who does not know what this disease is, please click on these links immediately and read and get educated, especially about the importance of checking your dogs gums. A delay of just a few hours could mean the difference between a dog making it or not. While in most cases the cause is unknown, many times vaccines trigger the disease, vaccines affect the immune system and this is a disease of the immune system. This is the reason many of us titer our dogs rather than giving 3 year distemper/parvo boosters (3 yr rabies is mandatory). I also am a very strong advocate of spacing out puppy vaccines, and never give rabies and parvo/distemper combo together.

I want to thank you all for the prayers. Dee is not so listless today, but still a very sick baby. I am numb...exhausted and flat out out of it. I will say we spent an hour with her and they let Darla be with her too. she did walk some and gave many many kisses. the fact that she did walk was good. Far from being out of the woods. I will try to post more ...or let Vickie post for me...thank you all for the prayers and please keep holding her in them.

Please remember, if your pup acts slightly off don't wait, get your baby checked out immediately. this was so sudden and she went from good to bad in a matter of just a few HOURS....not days. It is not worth the gamble.

Please hold her tight and help her fight.
Marsha
