Anaplasma marginale (bovine anaplasmosis caused by intraerythrocytic rickettsia - most prominent tick borne disease in cattle - can cause fatal hemolytic anemia)
Basophilic Stippling (abnormal retention of ribosomes - sometimes caused by intense regenerative anemias or lead poisoning - normal in ruminants)
Cytauxzoon felis (tick transmitted protozoan that infects RBC associated with Theileria - disease is usually fatal - Clinical Signs: lethary, anorexia, fever, icterus, hemolytic anemia - often non-regenerative)
Eccentrocytes (shifting of HgB to one side - caused by oxidative injury like ingestion of Onions in dogs - commonly seen w/Heinz body formation)
Echinocytes (numerous short spicules - in-vivo can be caused by electrolyte imbalances, kidney disease, or rattlesnake envenomation)
Acanthocyte (unevenly distributed projections, due to changes in lipid concentration in RBC membranes - Cats w/ Hepatic Lipidosis OR dogs w/ Hemangiosarcoma)
Ghost RBC (complement has lysed this RBC infected with mycoplasma haemofelis causing it to lose its HgB)
Hemobartonella canis (usually causes disease in splenectomized or immunosuppressed patients - Clinical Signs: anemia, icterus)
Howell Jolly Bodies (nucleus remains - indication of immature RBC release - Seen w/regenerative anemias, non-functioning spleens, or splenectomies, and increased corticosteroids)
Mycoplasma haemofelis (presence of the organism on RBC will cause IMHA - can cause severe hemolytic anemia- transmitted by flea/ticks - Clinical Signs: anemia, splenomegaly, fever, lethargy, icterus)
Polychromatic Reticulocytes (wright stain - cause by a result of regeneration following blood loss or blood destruction - sign of recovering bone marrow)
Spherocytes (smaller, lack central pallor - indicator of IMHA - complement eats membrane and destroys the disc shape)
Polychromatic Reticulocytes (stained with methylene blue - indicates regenerative anemia - such as blood loss or blood destruction)
