Anemia Due to Deformed Red Blood Cells in Dogs

Treatment

 

There is no specific treatment for metabolic anemia. Once the underlying disease has been diagnosed, your veterinarian will begin the appropriate treatment. Treating the underlying disease usually resolves the abnormality.

 

Living and Management

 

You will need to revisit your veterinarian for progress checks. At each visit certain laboratory tests may need to be repeated in order to follow the current status of the disease and your dog's level of improvement. Follow your veterinarian's guidelines regarding your dog's medication, nutrition, and management during the recovery period.
