HI Jonah , tough case. Harry has given a very through reply on all the different touch points. So I only wanted to add little more on the immunosuppression.

I have had cases over the years in which you are in a similar dilemma a case with a enterotomy that needs immunosuppression which may be related to the surgery or not . I have managed IMHA secondary to another disease pr ..read more

Hi Jonay, Essentially everything I'm going to say has essentially no evidence behind it and is just 'gut feeling' - sorry. If anyone has any other thoughts/evidence would be useful to know! Also, assuming that this is truly IMHA ( ACVIM consensus statement diagnosis- very much would have wanted a DAT test in this dog in addition to the saline agglutination in this case ), for me it would also depend on the severity of the IMHA ( e.g., is it agglutinating in the syringe when you take a blood sample, or does it seem to be a slower, extra-vascular IMHA? ) and client finances.
