Immune-mediated thrombocytopaenia is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks and destroys blood platelets. The condition generally responds to treatment, but relapses can occur. Your vet may recommend periodic recheck examinations and repeat blood work for the life-time of your pet to help identify and treat relapses early.
