I am so anxious that I should have given a history of Sebastian so someone can help me. He is 15 years old. He had pancreatits when he was younger. He had stomatitis. We treated him with steroids and antiferon (sp). We eventaully had to pull all but 4 teeth. He has been fine otherwise. He does have some Kidney fucntion problems but it was due to age. He was on Science Diet K/D dry food. He had a URI. He was treated 4 months ago. 2 months ago he was sick again. He was treated again. 1 Month ago he broken his arm. He tested positive for Strep in the wound. It was a computed fracture. He took a sudden turn for the worse. He stopped eating, so i force fed him. He developed a runny nose, congestion, a runny eye. He was put on Zythromax. His blood work showed that his potassium was low, his protein was low and he had a left shift in his white blood cell count. He was put on Potassium suppliments. He is doing ok, still being force fed. He needs an x ray done on friday, so i took him to the reg. vet for a check up since I am uncomfortable with the anethesia that will be given to him at the surgeons on friday. My boy has lost 2 pounds in one month. I AM feeding him plenty of Rebound and A/D. He is anemic and his WBC is 90,000. The vet also felt a mass in his tummy.
It has been a hellish month. I want to find out why he is SOOO sick...The vet said that they are waiting for the pathology report and that his WBC could be high due to a chronic infection but he has had no fever...I am a mess right now....there is something wrong and I am not a vet and do not know what to do....the vet is learning toward leukemia or lymphomea...But, if it is leukemia? how did he get it? also, no ELISA test has been done. I need to look up Elisa now.
