Thank you for offering to help Myka! I was fortunate to get in with the specialist this Monday so that will be the next step.
My regular vet said if I had to wait any longer she was considering sending me to Calgary. I do have many relatives there but not in Saskatoon.
Thank you Goldfields. When something like this happens you always think back and wonder if there is anything more you could have done. I have two dogs and Timber is more difficult to read -- she's very laid back and is not as emotional or sensitive as our older one. It also sounds like you don't have many symptoms with low platelets until they are at a very low level as you mentioned when you begin to see spontaneous bleeding.
I'll let you all know how our appointment goes!
