Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

HI, My sister Tika has been diagnosed with this disease. Does anyone have any information about it?
She is currently on high doses of Prednisone and had an initial count of 10,000. She had big bleeds on her tummy and legs.
We are so worried about her. If you know any information please share it with us. Thank you.hug

hugSorry to hear about Tika. cry Auto-immune diseases sure can be very difficult to deal with.

There's a pup on here named Mica that is really big into researching this after she went to the Bridge from AIHA. You might want to check out her page, as I am sure she has a lot of links to various resources for it.

I hope Tika's feeling better soon! wishes

I'm sorry to hear about your sister. A few months ago a vet diagnosed Gunner with the same disase. Thankfully a few rounds of steroids cleared everything up for us. It was so scary seeing him peeing blood and purple bruises all over his little body. hug We are keeping your family in our prayers.
