    Three flat-coated retrievers with a regenerative anaemia were examined. They were hypoproteinaemic suggesting that the anaemia might be due to blood loss, but it was not possible to identify a site of haemorrhage. All three had splenomegaly with splenic abnormalities apparent on ultrasonography....
