Abstract:
The present communication describes Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA) in five dogs. IMHA is predominantly a type II hypersensitivity reaction. Clinical signs and diagnosis of IMHA was based on the presence of spherocytosis on blood smear examination, saline agglutination, and confirmed by canine-specific coomb’s reagent. The age of dogs suffering from immune-mediated hemolytic anemia ranged from 1-2 years with a mean age of 1.8 years and one female and 4 males were presented. Hemato-biochemical studies revealed anaemia, thrombocytopenia, hyperbilirubinemia, and elevation of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase enzymes along with severe anemia. Successful whole blood transfusion was done in four patients one dog collapsed before transfusion.
