History and Initial Clinicopathologic Findings

A 7-year-old 30.6-kg (67.3-lb) castrated male Old English Sheepdog was presented to the emergency service at a veterinary teaching hospital for evaluation of severe nonregenerative anemia. Two months earlier, the owner had noted that the dog had pale mucous membranes, but no other clinical signs were observed. A week before presentation, the dog was evaluated by the referring veterinarian. At that time, relevant clinicopathologic abnormalities included severe normocytic, hypochromic, nonregenerative anemia (Hct, 0.14 L/L; reference interval, 0.38 to 0.57 L/L), mild hyperkalemia (5.9 mmol/L; reference interval, 4.0 to 5.4 mmol/L), and slightly high symmetric dimethylarginine
