Reply To: DIC Question



Not going to be massively helpful here. I presume it has some association with colic… are these colic cases you are talking about? I think these is a like between the endotoxemia from colic and DIC. Maybe some of the other members will have more light to shed.

Dogs and cats definitely get DIC. I wonder whether cases of DIC are underdiagnosed in small animal practice? Dogs and cats will get DIC secondary to lots of different underlying conditions but definitely don’t get colic like horses do!

Hope that helps.
