If you remember, Rusty’s last blood test showed that his white blood cell count had come down, but was still high, and his red blood cell count had improved, but was still low. But, with the improvements he had made over the last few tests, we made the decision to take him off his antibiotics and see if his body would continue to fight off any infection. After a couple of weeks passed, we tested his blood again.
The results were essentially the same. Now, we would have preferred everything to have returned to normal, but that fact that his bloodwork is remaining stable without any medication is a very good sign.
More importantly, he is no longer having problems with balance and his back legs are to 80-90% strength. He is enjoying our walks, loves hanging out in the yard, and generally seems to be feeling good.
We will run blood tests again in 4 weeks, but all signs point to us being back to normal.
