Coagulation Disorders ‘If you prick us, do we not bleed?’

Internal Medicine | 155 mins

In this webinar, we look at the approach to coagulation disorders in small animal practice. Coagulation is complex, but the investigations of these conditions does not have to be. We will look at disorders of primary haemostasis. Thrombocytopenia is a common abnormality, but how often is it clinically significant? We discuss the challenges when treating these cases… giving back platelets is still a challenge. Disorders of secondary coagulation can also be daunting to investigate and treat. Learn how to approach and diagnose these cases with confidence, even when individual clotting factor analysis is not an option. We consider treatment options for these patients… from plasma to tranexamic acid.
