Molly's Unusual Lethargy
Molly is a 4 year old Jack Russell Terrier. Her owner noticed she was very lethargic for a couple of days and had gone off her food. When she brought her in we noticed she was very quiet and her gums were very pale. Blood tests revealed she had a very low red blood cell count.
This was due to immune mediated haemolytic anaemia which can happen very suddenly.
Luckily Molly has responded very well to treatment and is now back to her usual lively self and her red blood cell numbers are normal. She is expected to make a full recovery.
