I am trying to find a natural treatment for blood loss anemia. I think I read a post on this site by a nurse who stated that she has never hung blood in her entire career. She spoke of a treatment for pt's with very low H&H that was successful without blood transfusions. I can't remember what the treatment was--some supplements/diet?
Anyway, this is an unusual situation. We have a beautiful Percheron Draft mare that is coughing up large amounts of blood. She has had an extensive workup at a large equine facility and is now home on antibiotics. They believe it is an abscess in her lung that is causing the bleeding, and if we can give her adequate time to heal, she should be ok. Blood transfusions for horses are very expensive, and we have already spent more on her than her economic value--though she is precious to us. I have used natural therapies for my family for years, and would love to find something that we could use to give this wonderful horse a second chance.
