She's also VERY active in this fb group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/6228146980/

And yes, she had a dog who recovered from it.

All the vibes in the world for Talon. I know I'm a little late to this, but still thinking about him!

Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia? That's SCARY, but I do have an online acquaintance who is like the queen of IMHA. If that's it, let me know and I'll pm you her email.
We have two dog clients at our clinic that were diagnosed with IMHA...and they're still alive and kicking and doing quite well. So even if that is the final diagnosis, take hope!

If he has IMHA work very very very closely with your vet on treatment and push for treatment NOW.

I'm not saying this to scare you, you already Googled it (I made the same mistake at the time) so you know this. That is what Happy died of. The e-vet he was at when he collapsed tested for it, gave meds, and said the regular vet needed to development a treatment plan for it, but then the regular vet just... didn't. And my sister is not a very assertive person so she didn't push on it either. And a week later he was dead. Of course he was in really bad shape when they found out he had it so it's not the same, but if there's stuff indicating he has it now, don't let it go. Be assertive, definitely.

I'm sorry I missed this earlier. Very scary! I hope it turns out not to be too serious and just an allergy. :-(

This, definitely. It's treatable, but you MUST be aggressive and you MUST act NOW. The steroids are a good first step, but I'd be pushing REALLY hard for more details. We had a dog at the clinic I work at die from it recently, and one of my friends lost her dog to it a few years ago. BUT we had another dog at the clinic that recovered from it - but she had to go to the teaching hospital to get everything figured out. If I remember, she was on cyclosporine and prednisone FOREVER but eventually was able to wean off of it all. But she's no longer allowed to have ANY vaccines at all. None.

Fingers crossed that Talon does well!

My only experience with IMHA is with a cat patient. He's had a couple scary episodes where he gets pretty sick, but he's bounced back. He had a bad episode when I first started working there back in January but he's a-okay now. He comes in like once a month to have his PCV checked and he's on daily pred.

Good vibes to you guys.
