IMMUNE-MEDIATED HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA (IMHA): UNDERLYING DISEASE SCREENING IN DOGS. WHAT SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR?

08/22/2018
Dr Linda Kidd

Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in dogs. Infection, neoplasia, and other triggers may contribute to the development of IMHA in susceptible patients. Unidentified underlying triggers likely contribute to treatment failure. Dr. Linda Kidd will discuss key points on immune-mediated hemolytic anemia including:

  • Evidence for infection and other comorbidities as triggers for IMHA

  • Clues - in a given case context - that help determine diseases for which individual patients should be screened

  • Data from a recent AKC Canine Health Foundation study that illustrate how to optimize detection of vector-borne disease agents commonly associated with immune-mediated disease
