    Question submitted during the Underlying Disease Screening in Dogs with IMHA webinar:

    Can inhalant allergies increase IMHA? In NM we have fewer ticks and fleas but tons of atopy.

    Interesting question. Do you see a lot of atopy in dogs with IMHA? More than in dogs without? It’s a different kind of immune “hypersensitivity” but immune dysregulation or treating it with drugs that modify the immune response could theoretically contribute to the development of immune mediated disease.
