This blog reports on the progress of Phoebe. Phoebe is my 6 year old dog, she is 3/4 Springer Spaniel and 1/4 Border Collie. Phoebe was a fit and healthy dog, full of boundless energy until she took ill on 17th February 2007. She has been diagnosed with Immune Mediated Haemolytic Anaemia (IMHA - also known as Auto-immune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA)). IMHA is where the immune system attacks the red blood cells.
