I have an American/Red Nose Pit Bull. She is 7 years old. No prior medical history except hereditary mange which was treated successfully when she was less than 1yr old. Out of no where she became very lethargic and stopped eating. I took her to the vet and they advised her blood count was 18 and should be 35. The lab results came back and the vet diagnosed her with Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia. She is on Prednisone and Azathropine. We are only in week 1 but still no improvement on the blood cells increasing. I am very concerned. I have 3 other dogs and none of them are having this issue. What could have caused this?????
