Sport update

I thought that I would give you all an update on Sport. The vet is really happy with him since he looks so much better now. The bruising is gone. His platelet count is up to 55 which is about a third of what it should be but much better then it was 5 days ago. It was at 12 which is about a 14th of normal. (Normal is around 170) He is still on the same dosage of medication but we are hoping to reduce it in a week or so when his platelet count gets back to normal. He goes back to the vet next Monday unless he develops more problems in the meantime.

He is acting like his normal self again except that he has to go out VERY regularly.

I thought I'd post some pics I took today of him so you can all see how much better he is looking.

Thank you all for your concern and helpful comments. My family and I appreciate it and are so very thrilled that he is recovering.

Great news that the medication is helping him recover so quickly. It sounds like it won't be long before you have a maintenance plan to keep him on the mend.

He really looks a LOT better in these photos. I agree that the groomer should have called you the second she saw the bruising. I don't see how she could have missed it. It would also be good for her to know that it was a life threatening situation that needed immediate attention. I would be surprised if she knew about his disease. Grooming (imo) is a time to do an overall body check to see if there is anything out of the ordinary.

I'm not saying a groomer should be responsible for a vet check, but they should be able to say "Wow! This doesn't look right!" and let you know.
Sending lots of ((Hugs)) your way. Thanks for keeping us updated. Sport is an important part of our community and I wish him a speedy and full recovery.
