NALA AND BEEBEE UPDATE
Evan's Disease in Dogs | Cuteness ) Their cells (red and white) are being attacked because their bodies think they are the enemy. They have been on antibiotics and prednisone. It helps the body to not fight itself. With IMHA, this is helping-- but I also know that IMHA is a very fickle disease and they may seem to do well and then crash again. I will take a dose of good news though!!
So, here it is-- Nala is doing a little better. In fact, we are going to try reducing her prednisone some and see how she does. BeeBee is a little behind Nala, so her dose will remain the same. I think I see some pink in her, too. So, that's good news for two little girls who have been fighting hard to stay alive.
