Thrombocytopenia (IMT) which is "Low Platelet Blood" Count.
What do “platelets” do?
They are the blood cells responsible for clotting. Production of the cells by the bone marrow can be increased a breakdown in the ... bloodstream, spleen or liver. Common in Canines, but Felines rarely get diagnosed or missed, so it is poorly documentation. Symptoms in Dogs and Cats with "low blood count platelets" that are needed for blood clotting may lead to… lethargy, weakness, increased respiratory rate, bruising, anemia, bleeding, pale gums, dark, tarry stools and other serious complications, e.g. anemia.
Causes can be a variety of things including:
~ Sepsis (infection in the blood)
~ Organ or systemic Infections (e.g. in Feline A.I.D.S)
~ Pharmaceuticals drugs, Flea, worming, Heartworm drugs products,
~ Leukemia (which is a Vitamin C deficiency in many cases),
and the most common cause is a from vaccinations (as vaccines severely deplete vitamin c from the body). For this reason, please avoid any further toxic insult to your pet's body.
Conventional Treatment: may include transfusion of the platelets or prednisolone drug, and suggest removing the spleen, I think they would also suggest removing the liver, but can't do without the liver!!
Important Vitamins needed ASAP.
Vitamin C is an anti-inflammatory nutrient that is important for healing wounds, maintaining the integrity of capillaries, and absorbing iron from food. Since ITP is associated with inflammation6 and reducing bleeding symptoms is important, it is plausible that taking vitamin C could help people with the platelet disorder. Of all the vitamins and supplements, vitamin C has been the most studied in ITP. In PDSA's Survey of Non-Traditional Treatments for ITP about 30 percent of those who tried vitamin C felt it helped their platelets and bleeding symptoms, with about 10 percent claiming there was a sustained effect.

Folic acid (vitamin B9)
Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin needed for numerous body functions including DNA
repair and rapid cell division and growth, including blood cells. Folic acid deficiency may cause thrombocytopenia.
* Use the HAMPL Formulas and Vitamin C in conjunction with Folic Acid in the form of Folinic Acid (which is a bioactive form of Folate) Brand is California GOLD Nutritionavailable from iherb.com Add Folic Acid ( Folinic Acid ) to your dosing regime once you get it in.
"Hemolytic Anemia" (IMHA) which is "Low Red Blood Cells" Count.
If your dog or cat has been diagnosed with IMHA condition you will be needing to give the
HAMPL Anemia 38 - Homeopathic Set.
For Low "Red Blood Cells" and Low "Blood Platelets"
If your pet has both blood issues, then this natural treatment set is what your pet needs. Pets can also show symptoms of Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (red cell reduction) (IMHA) as well Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (low platelets in the blood) (ITP or IMT) in which the body’s own immune system attacks and destroys its red blood cells (IMHA) or platelets (ITP).
Controversy Over What Causes IMT.
A study conducted by the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Purdue University and published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine failed to confirm a link between idiopathic immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (IMT) and recent vaccination. Thankfully, the Purdue researchers also noted that, "… the possibility of an association cannot be completely ruled out based on the small sample populations and requires further investigation."Dr. Robert Runde, writing for dvm360.com, points out other limitations of the study, including lack of information on the number of vaccines the dogs in the study received throughout their lives.
According to Dr. Runde, "… it is difficult to conclude whether recent or cumulative vaccinations may or may not increase the risk of idiopathic IMT." It's the opinion of most holistic veterinarians that the vast majority of immune-mediated diseases, including IMT, are triggered or exacerbated by vaccines, particularly bacterin (vaccines against bacterial organisms, such as the leptospirosis and Lyme vaccines), as well as killed vaccines (rabies vaccine).
Studies like this one that looks only for associations between recent vaccinations and immune-mediated disease have a very limited use, in my opinion. Some animals' immune systems are reactive for the very first time a foreign and potentially toxic agent like a vaccine is introduced. The response in these pets is immediate and often overwhelming. Other animals' immune systems (the majority, in my experience), respond to cumulative vaccinations over a period of months or years.
Sometimes it's a vaccine alone that triggers immune disease in a pet. More often, it's vaccinations coupled with other medications, environmental toxins, poor quality diet, and other lifestyle stressors. The strength and balance of every animal's immune system is different, so there's no way to predict – unless your dog or cat has had a reaction in the past -- how much danger your pet is in from exposure to the modified virus contained in any given vaccine or the many toxic ingredients it also contains.
That's why I, and other experienced Homeopathic Practitioners and some Holistic Veterinarians strongly encourage pet owners to get a Titre Test done before to see if an actual vaccination is necessary. You will see that unnecessary vaccine and over vaccinate can be avoided. This, in turn, will keep your pets a lot healthier and longer life disease free.
What is vaccinosis?
~ Vaccinosis is a condition recognized almost exclusively by the holistic veterinary community. It is not generally acknowledged by traditional veterinarians. Dr. Richard Pitcairn defines vaccinosis this way: “Vaccinosis is to be understood as the disturbance of the vital force by vaccination that results in mental, emotional, and a physical change that can, in some cases, be a permanent condition.”
~ Vaccines are composed of modified live viruses, killed viruses and a number of potentially toxic substances. They also enter the body in an unnatural way (by injection) compared to real viruses. They bypass the body’s first lines of defense and are delivered directly to the blood and lymph systems.
~ Vaccine reactions, or vaccinosis, are wide-ranging. Some reactions are relatively minor, while others are life-threatening.
Fortunately, the traditional veterinary community is slowing becoming aware that vaccines are not the benign disease-prevention tools they were once thought to be.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
