Thanks for all the info once again.....feeling a bit better about the process than I did at the start....common I am sure. The vet I am working with I do have confidence in....I have no worry's there. They are currently treating 2 dogs with the same condition, and each of these dogs are currently doing well, so they really are knowledgable about IMHA, and the questions and information they have provided go right along with the sticky post on this topic. In regards to the non-regenerative IMHA, this was my thought process, nothing the vet told me, in regards to this causing Oakley's possible death. My thought was if he is not reproducing red blood cells, how is he going to make it...but I am learning going through this process :)
Makes sense to let the Preds work....thanks Sand and Dawn....makes sense they have to have some time. Oakle's energy level has picked up. At the start you could tell he was off, and just not himself. He currently has a bit more energy, his appetite has picked up, which I am sure is from the Preds....he went to his food dish and ate his dry food this morning, which he has not been doing for about 4-days. He is getting spoiled though
boiled chicken at dinner so I can place his medicine inside of the chicken to make sure it goes down the hatch LOL
He is getting alot of loving right now, and we are continuing on with the process. He is going in later today, and take his blood again to see where his numbers are, and we will just keep taking it one step at a time.
For others reading this post on Oakley, this forum has given him a chance in regards to IMHA, just for the simple fact I have read the topics in the caring section from time-to-time, and it stuck in my head in regards to this diease. Alot of great information posted by alot of great people who love this breed of dog. Oakley is as good as a dog he is from the information I have received through here since he was a pup
