We describe a case of homeopathic treatment for severe thrombocytopenia, associated with infection with Ehrlichia canis, corresponding to a 12-year-old Maltese female dog, replacing usual hospital treatment with steroids and platelet transfusion. On 28 January 2019 the patient presented thrombocytopenia­5,000 platelets/mm³­and petechiae on the dorsal and ventral regions, and also an extensive acute cervical hematoma. Treatment consisted of sequential administration of platelet biotherapy to stimulate platelet production and Phosphorus to check bleeding, as well as 2 doses of Lachesis muta also to control bleeding. The patient was followed up until 04/17/2019, the progression demonstrating the efficacy of homeopathic medicines for treatment of severe thrombocytopenia, without causing any side effect. (AU)
