This webinar will explore the condition IMHA, an immune mediated disease that presents relatively commonly in the canine species. Together we shall explore both the pathophysiology of immune disease and the clinical manifestation of anaemia. Patient presentation and diagnostic modalities will be discussed in relation to the condition, alongside important sampling considerations and challenges. Available treatments will be introduced and deliberated including the mainstay of immunosuppression therapy. The role of the RVN including specific nursing considerations will be discussed to enable the highest levels of patient care and owner support.
