Anaemia in cats and dogs

Anaemia in cats and dogs

The presentations of  anaemia in cats and dogs in general practice is highly variable, from severe life threatening emergencies requiring rapid, effective decision making on an approach to diagnosis and treatment, to chronic progressive disease that can have subtle clinical disease and needs a logical and potential cost-conscious approach to an apparently incidental finding on routine blood work.

Cases can be challenging to investigate and treatment highly variable from aggressive intervention sometimes before a diagnosis is achieved to chronic, often long term management and support requiring good communication and clear explanation for the owner. Cats and dogs have significant differences in almost all aspects of anaemia from their laboratory tests to disease types and prevalence

This course is designed to address the most common presentations of anaemia in small animal practice providing a clear and consistent approach that can be modified to suit individual client and patient needs. Key topics to be covered include

  • Laboratory evaluation of anaemia – what tests in what order?
  • In clinic assessment of cases from emergencies to blood smear evaluation.
  • When is it appropriate to move to more in depth investigation including when and how to perform bone marrow biopsies?
  • Principles of treatment including blood transfusion.
  • Approach to diagnosis and management of non-regenerative anaemia in cats and dogs.
  • Approach to diagnosis and management of regenerative anaemia in cats and dogs.
  • Emergency management of anaemic patients.
  • Preventing anaemia – what can I do to minimise the risk of haemorrhage in at risk patients?
