Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Our Husky has been ill for 2 weeks now..Very lethargic, won't eat..Took him to vet and got a urine test, Xrays, Blood work and abdominal ultrasound..The only thing that came up was low platelet count and no one knows why or where we go from here. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance

They dont know what's wrong, we have him on antibiotics, appetite stimulant and now they are putting him on a round of steroids today. Suggested a possible specialist. Just wondering if anyone has seen this?

So he has no interest in any food?

Not eating kibble is one thing...not eating cheeseburger or a piece of grilled steak, is another...

Not saying you should feed him burgers and steaks!
Just curious if he is ever interested in ANY food at all?

Ugh. In an old dog, to suddenly stop eating, I would worry. Probably should follow through on the second opinion. Any chance she got into something poisonous? Did your vet check thoroughly for lymph nodes?

Hopefully, either a second opinion sheds some light or the prednisone helps.

Quick look at petMD...mentions liver issues, systemic infections, cancer...
I would also be inclined to see the specialist.

And dental issues....did they check that his teeth are ok, not painful?

You are going to need that second opinion. Get copies of everything your current vet has and take it with you to a different vet. They may need to get a bone marrow sample to see what's going on. At 10 it could be a number of things. As long as this dog has been this way you shouldn't waste any time. Not sure where you are but university vets can sometimes be good options.
