Saving Sydney

We discovered a little over a week ago that Sydney's red blood cell count was way below what is normal for a dog. We've tried some different medications to try to figure out what was causing this but weren't getting anywhere. So, yesterday (5/15) we were referred to a specialist group, Oakland Veterinary Referral Service, that has the ability to give her the care she needs. Her red blood cell count was so low she required a blood transfusion to keep her from organ failure. They did an ultrasound this morning and nothing substantial was found that would cause this much blood loss. They are running more tests to try to determine the cause and get her the help she needs. She is basically severely anemic to put in the simplest terms. There are still more tests to be run and we are waiting to hear if they've found anything. Please pray for our little girl! I cannot begin to express my gratitude to the family and friends that have provided us with kind words and support over this last week. We are broken hearted. We cannot imagine life without her. We are not ready to give up on her until we know there's nothing else that can be done. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help. I don't know what we would do without all of you! And if you can't give, we totally understand, please say a prayer or share a hug. We need lots of those!

With love,
Kerri & Jerome
