Anaemia and thrombocytopaenia are commonly encountered in practice, and primary immune-mediated disorders are common underlying conditions, especially in dogs. This exciting panel discussion led by world-leading experts will take a deep dive into pathogenesis and risk factors, clinical signs, approach to diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of four major immune-mediated disorders in dogs and cats: peripheral IMHA, precursor-targeted immune-mediated anaemia (PIMA), immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, and Evan’s syndrome.

Recommendations in the 2019 ACVIM Consensus Statement for treatment of IMHA will be highlighted and discussed, including new evidence to support or refute those recommendations. The goal of the panel discussion is to ensure that practitioners from primary care, emergency practice, and specialty care practices leave with the latest information on these diseases, including practical tips that can immediately be implemented to improve patient outcomes. Questions and comments will be welcomed.
