Your dog was anemic (too little red blood cells) There can be a lot of reasons for this. Cancer, internal bleeding and the immune system killing the red blood cells. Your dog was very sick and the steroid shot was likely to stop the immune system from killing more red blood cells. Your veterinarian should have explained this to you. Steroid shots can be dangerous in certain situations, but it is likely that your dog died from whatever was making it anemic in the first place.
What Would Cause A Dog's Mouth And Gums And Paws And Ears To Turn White When They Were Pink. Then The Dog Died After She Was Given A Steroid Shot To Boost Red Blood Cells. Could The Steriod Cause Her To Die Or Was She Already Ill Being All Pale?
Could my English bulldog have gotten so sick and poisoned from the Christmas Tree. She was always going under it this year. She died shortly after Christmas I'm thinking of everything I can that might have happen to her. I don't know why. Your answers sure help my pain though. thanks a lot, Gloria
MY dog has a white mouth and I don't know what to do he's all sad.
