I'm glad he's home again. Hopefully the blood work will shed some light on what's going on with him.

Will keep checking for updates and hoping for good news for you all,

Natalie

He seems to be doing well again, although this vet wanted us to try Caninsulin (vetsulin) again for the 4th time because Kramers numbers have not been in control recently (try NEVER). So he's getting caninsulin twice a day and we're still feeding him canned food because he devours it.

We're going to wait a few weeks to do the bloodwork, partly because right now his body is trying to heal, so it may not give us a great representation of what is actually going on, and partly because we've spent 2000 bucks on him in the last couple of weeks and our wallets need a rest.

I doubt that our "small town" vets will have a test for the hemolytic anemia, but we'll ask when we go in. Anemia can be caused by chronic illnesses such as the diabetes so it may just be taking a toll on him. We'll reserve judgement until he's had a couple of weeks to recover and we get the bloodwork done.

Here's hoping Kramer can stay out of the hospital for a couple of weeks at least!!!

Breanne and Kramer

Glad Kramer is home, I'd wait awhile also before the bloodtests, let him get comfy at home and not see the door to the hospital or vets office.

Bumping this up because of Kramer's problems with lipids in his blood and his being treated for them.

I have a springer with the platelet disorder. He was on Imurin for a year vs. prednisone which is what alot of vets like to perscribe. He did very well on it and we weaned him off of it with within 6 months. His anemia is in check. Although his platelets are at the low end they are still normal. He was urinated alot with this disease, gums were very lite. As it progressed there was blood in the urine. Hope Kramer does well.
