Bumper by Dr. Holly Mims

Bumper, a 10 year old Pit Bull, was presented for further evaluation of anemia and a distended abdomen.  She was found to have Babesia gibsoni, a protozoal infection that can be seen in Pit Bulls.  This infection was causing the anemia and protein loss in her urine which was resulting in abdominal fluid and abdominal distension.  Bumper was treated with multiple medications and blood transfusions.  She has responded to treatment and at the current time is doing very well!   Image
