We got Murray's follow up bloodwork back and he's still extremely anemic. Now the vet thinks this isn't related to the glass/onions/macadamia nuts/raisin episode at all. We looked back at some of his previous blood tests from the last year and he was below normal then (but not enough to cause alarm) but now he's much, much lower.
She's concerned this could be an issue with his bone marrow...some medical term that I don't remember now but some type of blood related auto immune disease that doesn't allow the bone marrow to release the iron it is making. She asked the lab to run a few more tests and hopefully we'll have more info tomorrow. She was throwing out all sorts of medical terms while we were on the phone and I didn't have a pencil handy to make notes so I can't even research anything at this point. All I can do is sit here waiting and praying that whatever this is, we found it early and that it is treatable.
Please keep Murray in your thoughts and prayers if you have a spare moment. :'(
Oh no, Lydia. :'(

I am sorry about Murray. I don't want to worry you, but the first sign of Brodie's cancer was the anemia. Your vet might consider an ultrasound as an option.
