Saving a dog with dexamethasone
We present a life-threatening anaemia in an eight-month-old dog, of the pug breed (haemoglobin 43 g / L), accompanied by splenomegaly. The condition was quickly overcome with a 3-day course of dexamethasone 1mg / kg / day. Pulse therapy with corticosteroids was discussed.
