Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund
Dedicated to funding research into an often fatal blood disorder in dogs
Canine AIHA/IMHA (autoimmune/immune-mediated hemolytic anemia) is a serious, often fatal blood disorder. In dogs with AIHA/IMHA, abnormal antibodies stick to the red blood cells and cause the body to believe the red blood cells are a "foreign invader." The dog's immune system attacks the red blood cells and destroys them, leading to anemia. Scientists estimate more than 50 percent of dogs with AIHA/IMHA will die from the condition, usually within weeks of diagnosis.
