Penny and Maggie's Mom may know something about this because of their Cody who has a different kind of anemia.

http://www.cloudnet.com/~jdickson/ is the gold standard for information on autoimmune type anemias. Our springer, Cody, had autoimmune hemolytic anemia 4 years ago and through a lot of intensive vet care he is a survivor. Please scour the Meisha's Hope site, esp about treatments and also the success pages. There is also a board where you can read and ask questions of people who have gone through it or are going through it. http://www.vetnet.co.uk/cgi-bin/gen5...list&subject=7 Most importantly, make sure your vet is familiar with this autoimmune disease and has experience in its treatment. Early, quality care is critical. Please feel free to contact me on my profile page if I can help further. Unfortunately, you can't receive PMs since you don't have 15 posts, but I'd be glad to email you if you'd like too.

In November of 2011 our 2 year old golden retriever, Sali, received her Rabies and Parvo vaccinations. Within 3 weeks she became lethargic and had a red area in the white of her eye. The vet diagnosed her with Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia. Treatment was 40 mg prednisone daily. Her platelet numbers improved immediately but after tapering there was a steady decline again. We resumed higher doses of prednisone combined with 6 mg melatonin twice daily. We are tapering more slowly this time but platelet numbers are still declining. I am wondering why the vet and online sources are so quick to reject the connection between administering vaccines with onset of disease. It seems that there is a relationship since dog was so young and otherwise healthy and active. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this and if their are any suggestions for further treatment.
