And so I did. I rushed her to the all night emergency vet where I spent the next few hours with her while they tried to find out what was wrong with my girl.
After a thorough physical examination they drew blood. The first results came back so low they wanted to do them again to confirm. The second results confirmed the first results. Her red blood count was very, very low. Here platelets only registered 8 (normal range is between 200-500). The vet said she either had a blood disease or was bleeding internally. They immediately put her on an IV to give her some liquids. By this time it's about 2:30 in the morning. They told me I should go home and that they would run some additional tests and take a full set of x-rays to figure out what was going on. They said they would call me immediately if her condition deteriorated. They felt she was stable enough that she would make it through the night. I was suppose to come back at 7:30 am and take her to her normal vet, Dr. B.
I went home but didn't sleep. I prayed.
