Heinz body anemia is a blood disorder that can affect dogs. Heinz body anemia occurs when the red blood cells in a dog’s body clump together, causing them to have less flexibility and become rigid. This can lead to problems with the ability of the red blood cells to pass through small capillaries, which are very small blood vessels that carry oxygen from the lungs to all other parts of the body.
