Just saw this, Steph. I am so sorry and I am worried about your boy Kelso. hugging

High and prolonged doses of steroids freak me out b/c they wreak havoc on the immune system. But this is all so out of my league so I can only send you the very best and strongest healing thoughts for Kelso.

Updating from my phone , have never done this from my phone so hope it works

We are still waiting to speak w the vet regarding the plan, guess it has been crazy in the ER and she has had some procedures.

We have been up there this morning, brought him his mean stuffed cat. Eyes looked a bit better, but clearly not well. He tore out his iv so the were replacing it. His temp went down overnight but was 105.6 this am. He liked that we were there nice to see him perk up a bit. Platelets are 45,000 so pretty low.

Thank you all again for the thoughts and prayers. I will ask about the thyroid

I am sorry to hear about Kelso. While I don't post often, I do read quite a bit. I read this article this morning and thought of you guys. While the article talks about allergies, I still thought it would be an interesting read since Kelso is on steriods.

Btw, your phone posting worked great - watch out, once you do it once....

Platelets are low, but the last dog I saw with a plaetelet crash was down to 18...he's on a lifetime low dose of tetracycline now, but doing well.

I hope you are talking with the vet now - waiting is so hard. Extra hugs and scritches to kelso.

Kelso is very sick

It is hard for me to keep it together right now but I want you guys to know as you have always been there for our dogs

His elbow has blown up overnight, when I saw it I thought it was from the IV he pulled out this morning, the vet thinks he has a quickly spreading infection in that area. Possibly other places, urine/blood, possibly sepsis if it is in his blood. His elbow was fine yesterday which is why she is concerned as it moved fast. She is also worried about his low plts - not sure if it is the autoimmune stuff or the infection doing this, but the infection is what has to be stopped at this point

he will not be coming home, staying in the icu for IV antibiotics/fluids. She is going to do all she can of course, surgery not likely as he will lose that leg she said if she did that. We will be with him, I took him his blanket as well

I have never really known what this grief feels like racking your body for your dog and best friend, Kelso is my first puppy, and own dog. I would not wish it on my worst enemy.

thank you again, your thoughts and prayers are comforting

One of my worst fears for him, I cannot express how sorry and worried I am for your boy.

I can say, the combination of doxy and cipro have been a lifesaver for Max. What are they using for kelso? I was reading an artical last night about cipro in some rickettsia infections, so we may have stumbled upon something here.
