Very low Neutrofil count
I've been away for a long time but I find myself in need of your collective advise! Have any of you had a dog with a really low neutrofil count? I'm beginning to wonder if it's that nature of the breed? Because Tippi ACTS perfectly normal. The only reason that we discovered the low count is because I was going to have her teeth cleaned and it showed up on her pre-op blood panel. Since then we've done x-rays, an MRI, we've put her on probiotics and vitamins and the count keeps dropping. Any thoughts?
She does have a slightly sensitive stomach, and we are now entertaining the idea that she might have been having an allergic reaction to chicken, so we're trying a no chicken approach for a month before we re-test her. Other than that, i've got no plan. she's seen her regular vet and he called in a specialist (internist). Lots of head scratching going on.
