Idiopathic immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia (IMHA) is one of the most common immune-mediated diseases in dogs with a high mortality rate. In this retrospective study, we examined the effect of mycophenolate- mofetil (MMF) and human intravenous immunoglobulin (hIVIG) in combination with glucocorticoids on canine IMHA patients. Six dogs were treated with prednisolone and MMF (hIVIG-) and in 15 patients hIVIG was added (hIVIG+). There was no significant difference between the groups regarding age, weight, number of blood transfusions or hematocrit on the day of diagnosis. The hIVIG+ group showed a significantly faster recovery of the hematocrit, but this difference was only short-lived. The survival in the first year was similar in both groups and was with 71.5% somewhat higher than in other published studies. The addition of MMF to prednisolone for the treatment of dogs with acute IMHA was well tolerated and seemed to positively affect the course of the disease. Randomized studies are necessary to confirm this observation. Human immunoglobulin had only minimal clinical advantages and no effect on mortality.
