Sweet Jack Written by Doggie Academy in Client Stories on October 27th, 2008 I got word last night that one of my clients, Jack, is in ICU right now suffering from thrombocytopenia. From my research it seems that there are several types and causes of this autoimmune disease. Jack is a super sweet, handsome German Wirehaired Pointer mix adopted from a North Shore Animal League mobile adoption unit. This guy is only 5 1/2 month old and is a bundle of energy and personality. It seems terribly unfair that he has to go through this at such a young age. Please join me in sending little Jack all your best wishes. We are keeping our fingers crossed that he will be able to go home tomorrow.
