IMMUNE-MEDIATED HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA IN A DOG – A CLINICAL CASE

Manev, Iliyan; Marincheva, Victoria; Stamberov, Petar

The article describes a case of Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia in a dog. There is a description of the dynamic of the disease before and after the beginning of treatment with immunosuppressive drugs (Prednisolone and Azathioprine). The laboratory study shows significant improvement, the patient has no clinical complaints. There is a discussion for the approach to such clinical presentation and the application of a successful therapeutic strategy.
