Rio kind of suddenly went listless and wouldn't eat on Friday.
Took her to our vet yesterday, and she sent her straight over to the doggie ER.
The doggie ER skipped the ER and took her straight to the critical care clinic.

She's anemic, febrile, and for some reason hemolyzing her own red blood cells. She's received one transfusion, is in an oxygen cage, and is getting fluids, blood thinners, and immune regulating medications.

We're freaking out...prayers appreciated! She's the best dog in the whole world.
