Anyone else have a Chihuahua with IMHA (Immune Mediated Haemolytic Anemia)?

Nope. Hope if it is yours, the drugs will do their magic.

Yes it's my lad Kirby ~ he is doing ok at the moment, but it's a long hard struggle and the meds are causing many other problems ( he has long term pancreatitis ) ..

I'm so sorry this is happening to Kirby. Hope you have a vet that is wonderful, and that you love!! Has he had to have blood transfusions? (for others: hemolytic anemia means that for some reason the body is destroying the red blood cells). He is on prednisone?

His PCV was at it's lowest 16, under 15 and he would have needed a transfusion , He was on a lot of pred , less now (It all started in July ~ we are over the worst now (I hope) ) he had heart failure, bladder stones and many other problem Now he is suffering the side effects of pred, not too bad and of course it totally saved his life .
Yes I have a most amazing IMS vet at a specialist vet referral hospital ..

It's been the worst 4 months of my life ( and his i'm sure) ~ poor lad was in the vet for 10 days at the start , and then again 3 other nights ...
