American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Consensus Statements on IMHA
Two Consensus Statements were published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2019, representing evidence-based white papers on best practice in diagnosing IMHA in dogs and cats, and treating IMHA in dogs. Many Board members contributed to at least one of these publications, which each represented thousands of hours of effort by a larger collective team of experts who sourced, critically reviewed, and analyzed hundreds of papers in the preparation of the Consensus Statements. Results of these publications, in part or whole, were presented at the ACVIM Forums in 2018 and 2019; the American College of Veterinary Clinical Pathology Conference in 2018; and the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Congress in 2019.
