THESE ARE A WONDERFUL GIFTS FOR BIRTHDAYS, NEW PUPPY OWNERS AND HOLIDAYS.
What do we do when a first time mother with a newborn infant contacts us and needs help with their 10 year old dog who just possibly had a seizure? Well, we of course pick up their dog and rush him to our vet!
Gilligan is 10 years old and has never had a seizure. His mom is from out of state and now living here. She was a server before Covid hit, and then she was unable to go back to work because she was pregnant. She follows our page and has seen us post about our Home Is Where The Pit Is program. She was panicked and in tears when we spoke to her over the phone. As you can probably tell, Gilligan isn’t a Pit Bull.... but we just knew we had to help.
We are incredibly grateful to our vet team at Anaheim Hills Pet Clinic and Luxury Resort
and Dr Burbach for always taking such great care of every dog we bring in to them. For now, Gilligan is stable and it seems to have been an inner ear issue. We’re still waiting on test results, but he is back home with his family. Gilligans mom is super thankful, and we’re so happy we were able to help them.
Sadly blood tests came back showing Gilligan has something aside from an ear infection going on. He is severely anemic with a red blood count of 13% when normal is 37%. White blood cells are elevated and a liver count is very elevated among other things. He is going back to the vet tomorrow for a blood test to recheck all values. There is a very very high concern this could be AMHA.
Gilligan's appointment this afternoon lead him to a blood transfusion and overnight stay. Further testing shows he has lyme disease which is ok as long as it is only the Lyme Disease. There is still a concern of the AMHA. Gilligan must stay the night in the hospital, recheck blood tomorrow in hopes that the red blood cell count gets back to normal. If not, it will be another night and another transfusion.
Thank you everyone for helping us help Gilligan and his family. Gilligan has a bran new human baby sister to get home too.
