I dont know if anyone has any experience with this type of situation but it is a scary one. About 2 days ago Piglet started acting diffrent not a big change but wednessday she was laying around not wanting to do much she seemed depressed. On Christmas she became deyhdrated and would not eat, since all vets were closed my fiance was able to get fluids for her because he works part time at the vet. He brought her into the vet first thing Friday morning, she was wobley and fell down a few steps going outside. After a few test she was diagnosed with anemia her PCV red blood cell count was at 10 which is very low. They gave her some steriods and fluids to try and boost her cell count up. They said she is going to need a blood transfusion Sat. if her levels do not improve. We took her home and monitored her over night. There was no change in her behavior she still would not eat, and she could barely stand up, I had to carry her outside to use the bathroom and help steady her while she went. Were waiting to here results from tests this morning at vet, but this is a scary thing, they say chances with anemia are only 40%. Im scared..has anyone experienced this?
