Things were not all smooth sailing for my buddy. When he was around 6 years old. I notice him having trouble getting up and down the stairs. He couldn’t keep up with me and being my shadow was his job. I took him to the vet John used. By this time I had to carry him. They checked his labs and he was severely anemic. I had to take him to the animal ER. He had autoimmune mediated hemolytic anemia. It was a really bad case and he only had a 20% chance of survival. They presented me with the huge estimate and it was no question I would be late on my mortage I decided. At the time I was dating John and luckily he helped us out. Sammy got blood transfusions and steroids and stayed at the hospital for 3 days. I boiled him chicken and hamburger and brought him little containers. They all loved Sammy he was the baby of the hospital just like at home. After a bath he stayed wrapped in his towel just like he would with me. We normally have serious snuggles after a bath. Also as weak as he was he still was trying to climb in my lap for kisses. We don’t know what caused the anemia but thankfully he recovered! Super Sammy prevails..
