Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Nat King Cole
Nat King Cole is feeling great and so far is holding steady. New bloodwork in a few weeks to see if he still tests positive for Babesiosis. We are keeping our fingers crossed he doesn’t.
He also will not willingly get in the car, but once in, he will lay down and rest. He also thinks a bath is torture so we will work on that and make it a pleasant experience for him. We just love this Dude in so many ways. He loves people and just wags that tail all day long. He will make someone an amazing companion!
The struggle is real, but we won’t give up until we solve it..
Nat King Cole is stable feeling much much better. His platelets are still too low but he was sent home on lots of medicine to see if we can continue to stabilize him. Evan’s syndrome is what the diagnosis appears to be and Dr. Bronstadt feels the tick bite probably sent him into the auto immune response causing the whole problem. He is on cyclosporine, and steroids and it will be quite a while before we know how it will all turn out, but for now he is feeling much better.
It’s just so sad to see him start to be happy and wag his tail and then get struck down like this.
Nat King Cole is not doing well. Laura spoke to the ER doctor and they are continuing his care but his platelets are dropping and he is anemic. Apparently a transfusion isn’t safe with this condition to they are working with antibiotics and steroids. We don’t know if he will pull through this, the diagnosis will be confirmed in a few days when labs come back so we are hoping it might be something else but we are very worried about him.
Nat King Cole is now hospitlized and we are waiting for an update on how he is doing but we are worried about him. These dogs from the valley are just in such terrible shape, we are worried for so many of them in so many different ways.
