I came home Monday after having lunch with a friend, and found Anya lying, dazed, in a puddle of pee. This is the third episode of fainting or seizure in the last couple weeks, so it obviously is not an isolated incident. It happens when she gets up quickly or is agitated. (They all get excited when Mommy pulls into the garage and run in circles and bark and stuff.)
I called my vet. They are a mile down the street. It so happened that they didn't have anyone scheduled right then, and they asked if I could bring her right in. Dr. S. looked her over and took her back to take blood. They sent it off to the lab and then called me yesterday afternoon. Anya is seriously anemic.
He asked about fleas. I don't think that's it. Everyone here is on Trifexis or Frontline. I have no carpet anymore. They sleep on my bed, and I don't see any dead fleas or flea droppings on my bedding.
So, Anya has a vitamin tonic to build her up. Liqui-Tinic, twice a day for two weeks. Then we go in to get another CBC.
I don't know what is going on with my little girl. We think she is pushing 11 years old.
