Q. Our dog have cancer we had to get blood outside of his lungs now is is going anemic what would be your recommendation that we can do ?
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. It sounds like your dog is losing blood into his thorax. If that is the case, and there is no way to surgically stop the hemorrhage, then your options are limited. Your dogs bone marrow will kickstart to replace lost blood cells. If, however, your dogs anemia is severe, and him manufacturing of red blood cells is too small, then your dog will need a blood transfusion.
