A friend had this posted on Facebook this evening: http://www.giveforward.com/frankie2p...m_campaign=hug
"Frankie Two Paws, a 2-year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is currently in VCA-Aurora's Intensive Care Unit. He desperately needs prayers as well as donations to help with his medical bills.
Frankie became ill about a week ago. After several tests came back within normal range, doctors are still unsure what he has. Some test results showed abnormalities like platelet counts and dramatically decreasing red blood cells, so they feel he may have Evans disease, a condition that causes Frankie's antibodies to attack his own red blood cells and platelets. They’re also considering anaplasmosis (a tickborne disease), lyme disease, and cancer...
...This isn't the first time Frankie Two Paws has had to fight for his life. He was rescued from a Missouri puppy mill who discarded him because he was born without the use of his back legs. When he was neutered a year ago, he nearly died from internal bleeding. But with many prayers and Frankie's courage and determination, he made a full recovery and became an inspiration to many."
"Donations will go to Greater Chicago Cavalier Rescue to help pay for Frankie's medical bills and ongoing care. For more information, visit our website at www.gccavalierrescue.org."
I am not familiar with this rescue, but of course, if you would like to check it out yourself and help, that's the info.
I was thinking there was someone who had a dog with similar symptoms on here, but I don't remember who. I'll try a search, but if it was you or you remember the post, could you share with me?
