He has been able to figure out tough issues, in the past, that other vets were not sure what to do or just wanted to do unneeded surgeries Etc.

    Update, Mila is still her normal flying squirrel self. We were wondering if maybe it was stress induced since 2 of the 3 times she got sick were during or right after we had a large gathering. We had a party last nigh with over 30 people. She made it through just fine. I guess it might be the antibiotics that helped her through it. Guess it is wait and see.

    Strange that they put her on Steroids when her white blood cell count was high.

    High white blood cell count means infection. Steroids will just kill her immune system and render her unable to fight the infection (or cancer).

    I suppose its possible an autoimmune condition could cause high white blood cell count but I would definitely assume infection before that, and avoid steroids like the plague. Will only make it worse.

    The steroids seem to bring her back to life when she is going down fast. We start them only when she is to the point she is just laying there with her eyes open and only getting water from crushed ice we hand feed her. Hopefully we will Get this figured out. At the moment she is wrestling with Rudy, who would probably prefer to be sleeping.

    Update, she was tested a few days ago. White blood cell count 8500. Much better but she still has a few more days on antibiotics. Crazy little white dog has way too Much energy. We are starting to think she is really a Jack Russell terrier in bulldogs clothing.

    Latest update. Mila has been off medication since mid October. Keeping the fingers crossed. Seems to be doing well. Super crazy. At 1-1/2 years old still wondering when she is going to outgrow the Crazy Little White Dog puppy stage.

    I'm so glad to be reading that Mila is feeling better and improving. I hope this is the end of it, and she is over the infection.
