Casper is in Critical Condition

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

Hello All,

Casper is currently in critical condition at the hospital. He is suffering from Evans Syndrome. He was fine and healthy then suddenly collapsed on Saturday while playing. His immune system started attacking his red blood cells. It is like his body thinks it is allergic to his own blood. His red blood cell count and platelet count keeps dropping. Even after 2 blood transfusions, it keeps going down. The vet says it is hard to tell what triggered this and in most cases they never determine the cause. He has been fighting this since Saturday and his chance of survival is dwindling as the days go by. Please pray for him. We need a miracle.

I am posting updates on his situation on this message board

May God bless you Casper and your whole family! We have tears of joy! Now take it easy. Just relax and be pampered. The power of prayer, the doctors, and a little help from St. Francis! Whatever, we are just so happy you are home and feeling better.
