About this course

Where did all the red cells go? What to do when your patient is anaemic

This webinar will discuss the common clinical problem of anaemia in dogs and cats. Anaemia may be discovered during the routine diagnostic evaluation of a patient or be the cause of an emergency presentation to the practice. During the webinar, a logical approach to these cases will be presented to ensure a diagnosis is rapidly reached, and the latest recommendations given for the treatment of the most common causes of anaemia in dogs and cats.

There will also be discussion of when bone marrow evaluation is warranted and how to interpret the results. You will learn a logical approach you can apply to all cases with anaemia in a practice setting. There will be a focus on practical techniques and getting the most information from diagnostic testing. We will cover the common causes of anaemia and their diagnosis. We will also cover the current recommendations for their management using the latest evidence available.
