It has been two weeks since I first spend a few days of panic. My pup, Sadi, had blood in her urine but our normal vet said it was a UTI but momma here new it was something else and I am thankful I rushed her to the local Vet School. 3 days later I found out my poor girl has IMTP, Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia, basically her immune system kills her platelets with no cause. She was already in the spontaneous bleeding zone because they were so low. She was home for a week and started vomiting all day and night. She ate a washcloth apparently because of a combination of the meds and stress. Finally back home but trying to deal with the even more meds given since she didnt respond to the first round. Does anyone else have a shepherd with IMTP or ITP? I feel so alone but lucky because everything I find on IMTP normally ends in the lose of a pet because it normally doesn't get diagnosed before other complications.
