    How to increase white blood cell?


    Is there any medicine for increasing WBC count? Do we require food and other supplements to move up the WBC count?

    I want to know how to increase WBC in the blood of my dog. I recently had a complete blood check up done in Rs 1100 and found WBC count 2.3 lakh (range-2.4-5.4). I am looking the ways (food and exercise) and medicine to boost the WBC. Is WBC boosters advisable?

    * To increase WBC's in blood of your dog give it supportive treatment. Keep it hydrated by giving it lots of fluids and electrolytes.

    * Medicine will depend upon the underlying cause for decreased count of WBC's in your dog. If bacterial infection is the cause then antibiotics should be given.

    * If cancer is the cause then chemotherapy along with antibiotics should be given.

    *If certain drug is causing it then withdrawal of that drug will raise the WBC's.

    *If condition is immune mediated then steroids can be given.

    *Apart from drugs, balanced nutritious dog food can help to raise its WBC's.

    My dog suffered high fever 108 degree celsius for 4 hours. called the doctor given injection to lower the fever but it did not lowered. Finally the dog died on 10 October at 1 PM. Doctor was telling vaccine failed and he was suffering from distemper.
    The greatest wealth in this world is mental peace and good health.
