Eclectadog update


I apologize for the overly personal stuff about my dog but, when I describe her as “the President of the Eclectablog Fan Club”, I should always add that I am also the president of the Hara fan club.

Hara kept food down overnight. Her red blood cell levels are coming up as is her blood protein. She ate a whole jar of baby food and didn’t throw up at all (she vomitted during our visit last night.) Her poop has gone from frank blood to brown and now is a little less runny.

In short, she appears to be very much heading in the right direction. We probably won’t know until tomorrow if the prednisone will suppress her immune system enough that her body quits attacking/destroying her platelets. That’s key to her pulling through this. We remain hopeful that she’ll respond to the treatment. Statistically, around 3 out of 4 dogs does.
