Nala was seen at our clinic in 2015 for heat stroke; she had collapsed at home after some intense exercise outside on a warm day. When arriving at our clinic, she did not have a high temperature or show any of the typical clinical signs of heat stroke, but she did have diarrhea. However, upon doing some blood work, we discovered she was having issues with her blood’s ability to clot as well as the general functioning of her organs. The doctors were worried she could get sicker fairly quickly, so she was hospitalized. Nala was given IV fluids, antibiotics, and had a total of 3 plasma transfusions! After a couple of days of going back and forth between her day clinic and RRAEC, Nala was able to go home.
