Infection causes delay in Jake's Neuter
We took Jake for pre-surgery blood work last night and scheduled the "snip, snip" for next Friday. The vet just called to say Jake's white blood cell count is higher than normal...over 18000...and wants to start him on an antibiotic. I asked the vet what could be causing the infection and of course she doesn't know. We are going to take in a urine sample tomorrow to see if maybe it's a urinary tract infection. Surgery is postponed until his white blood cell count is normal. Does anyone have any thoughts on why his WBC count could be high?
