At the end of June, two-month old Frida was brought into the clinic very fragile and pale. Her owners were so diligent with her and upon examination she had a PCV of only 7% (the amount of red blood cells in your blood – normal is 28-40%- she was incredibly anemic).
She was admitted immediately and received a blood transfusion, borrowed from a friend of hers. Little Frida was the youngest recipient of a blood transfusion at our clinic.
10 days later, her anemia had corrected to 25%, she was eating, playing, and her symptoms were resolving. Her owners were taking great care of her!!
Frida recently came back into the clinic to check up, and what a difference we saw! She transformed from being on the edge of collapse to, now, doubling in weight and playing with her sibling! She is a champion in our eyes!!
