    Default Bleeding out the nose?

    Went to a seminar today. Dog hasnt had much training in past month.
    Came home and blood all over floor.
    I thought maybe heat at first but finally figured out it was her nose.
    Took to emergency clinic and they said the platlets were low.
    Cary her to vet monday, maybe TBD or????
    Any Info would be aprecieciated. Could stress add to this from not havinin had to sit in a crate all day for a while

    Hank had a nose bleed once. He bumped a metal lawn chair with his nose. It stopped and never reappeared. Did the bleeding stop on your dog?

    Most common causes of prolonged bleeding time due to thrombocytopenia (low platelets) are Ehrlichiosis and immune mediated thrombocytopenia. Severe hemorrhage can also deplete platelets but that would be from trauma not epistaxis (nasal bleeding). Any possibility of rat poison exposure? That could cause bleeding but not low platelets.

    I don't see how stress can be attributed to low platelets,

    Possible exposure to rat poison. She was running in and out of barn at the grounds while we were cleaning up. Would rat poison cause problems in just a few hours? Had a little blood this morning. Seems To be better, just has to pee every 15 minutes from prednizone
    Thanks, Brad

    yes, rat poison would work that fast. She needs a vitamin K shot immediately if rat poison is a possibility, you might want to call the e-vet.

    Had her at the E-vet last night. She is acting normal and on alot of meds. My vet called me this morning and over the phone he didnt seemed to concerned. He wants me to bring in the 2 blood samples I got to send for testing. And retest her blood in a couple days.
    Reading the results to him from e-vet. Sounds like a immune system problem, like Dr Ed mentioned.
    Boy I appreciate my vet. He will talk to me on Sundays.
    Thanks

    That's the great thing about most Vets. They are in it for the animals. At least that's been my experience over the years. Glad your girl is going to be OK...
