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.

I am so thrilled that Sport is doing so well!! Have you contacted the groomer at all?
Im so sorry to hear about this recent update! It seemed like he was doing so well and was really going to come through this without major problems. :(
Has your vet talked about doing an ultrasound to look at the spleen and liver (the most common organs involved with internal bleeding)?
Just remember that this new drug Can be hard on the liver. Doesnt mean that he will have problems with it. I hope it does the trick and helps Sport with no side effects! HUGS!!!!!
Good. At least you will get a baseline before starting the meds, or you will know that you cant start them because of this liver. Keep us updated!
