Diagnosis and Treatment Of Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia (for veterinarians)

Thrombocytopenia is a common disorder in small animals.There are several causes, which can be grouped into four categories.

These are accelerated platelet destruction, decreased production, increased consumption, and sequestration. Specific disorders in each category are listed in Table 1. Of the causes of thrombocytopenia in which the platelet counts are less than 30,000/ul, immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (IMT),disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, and bone marrow disorders are most common.

NB: Vaccination is believed to be one of the chief triggers for this disease. I, and many vaccinologists, believe that any pet who has have ever had this type of serious immune dysfunction should NOT be vaccinated. Consult with your veterinary homeopath to maintain your pet’s overall health. This will optimize the immune system and prevent potentially fatal vaccine reactions. Fortunately, my patients with this disease have responded well to homeopathic therapy.–Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
