Dogs offer a unique opportunity to observe and understand the detrimental impacts environmental pollutants have on mammal health, by understanding degradation of health in dogs living in human-influenced areas. It is the intention of this work to investigate if there is a direct correlation between autoimmune diseases in dogs and common contaminants in the water they drink. If a correlation is found, this data can be used to enhance the health and quality of life for both animals and people. Autoimmune disorders of interest of this work include Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA) and Hypothyroidism. About 100-200 dogs in the Albuquerque area have a history of these disease.
