Coagulopathies may be associated with single or multiple sites of bleeding characterized by cavity bleeding such as hematoma, hemarthrosis, hemomediastinum, and hemoperitoneum and thorax, but gastrointestinal hemorrhage and bruising may also occur.
In fact, a reasonable and simple approach for a bleeding animal to be screened for a coagulopathy would be to measure the ACT or PTT first as either test detects all coagulopathies (except for hereditary factor VII deficiency in Beagles).
Although hereditary coagulopathies can be suspected based upon the pattern of coagulation test abnormalities, specific factor analyses are needed to confirm a diagnosis.
