23 Jun Patient of the Week – Mabel
Mabel was one sick puppy on arrival at Mountainside ER. She had a fever and was dehydrated, lethargic and had been suffering from hemorrhagic diarrhea and vomiting. She required blood tests, a urinalysis and abdominal x-rays and was hospitalized in the ICU to receive IV fluids and supportive care. One of her test results revealed that she also had anaplasmosis, a tick-borne disease, requiring a long course of antibiotics. We expect that she will make a full recovery.
