Buckley, a 7 year old Cocker Spaniel came in as an emergency for lethargy and pale gums. After the ER doctors diagnosed Immune Medicated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA), a blood transfusion and therapy was started. IMHA is when your immune system attacks the red blood cells causing anemia. This condition is life threatening. With aggressive treatment and care, Dr. Rutherford and support staff were able to correct Buckley’s medical condition. The treatment takes about six months and involves various rechecks and blood work. Buckley’s owners were ready to do whatever was needed to treat him and thanks to their diligence and follow through, Buckley is doing great.
