Abstract:
The present case study reports a therapeutic management of severe anemic crisis due to chronic kidney disease in a 4 years old male Labrador Retriever weighing 30 kg. The dog was presented with the history of decreased appetite, lethargy, depression and weight loss. Clinical examination revealed muscle wasting, pale conjunctiva, ozena and dehydration. Hemato-biochemical analysis showed severe anemia, hyperphosphatemia and renal azotemia. Ultrasound examination revealed shrunken kidneys with abnormal echogenicity and loss of corticomedullary junction. Based on the clinical findings, hemato-biochemical findings and abdominal ultrasound, the case was diagnosed as anemia with stage 3 chronic kidney disease and therapeutic interventions were initiated. The dog was reviewed at weekly intervals and was showing progressive clinical improvement in the appetite, body condition. Blood tests during reviews showed progression in hematology. The patient showed recovery from anemia after 4 consecutive treatments with Darbepoetin at weekly intervals with prevailing chronic kidney disease.
