In this VetGirl podcast, Dr. Chris Byers, DACVIM, DACVECC reviews all you need to know about the pathophysiology and diagnosis of immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA). Clinicopathologic testing and diagnostics are designed to rule out underlying cause (e.g., secondary IMHA due to paraneoplastic causes, infection, etc.), while treatment is aimed at volume resuscitation (e.g., crystalloids, colloids, blood transfusions), immunosuppression (e.g., steroids, azathioprine, cyclosporine, etc.), and prevention of complications (e.g., gastric ulceration, hyper coagulability, etc.). Test your knowledge to see what you know about this difficult disease!
