Immune-Mediated Hemolytic
Anemia (IMHA): Underlying
Disease Screening in Dogs.
What Should I Be Looking For?

 



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. 


The focus of this presentation is on immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. Key discussion points include:

1)  Evidence for infection and other comorbidities as triggers for IMHA

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


3)  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
