Blood Cells

Results 1-10 of 9 in Blood Cells
1. Bleeding Disorders in Dogs
Bleeding disorders are diseases in which the blood does not clot normally, causing a tendency to bleed abnormally or excessively after minor bumps or cuts. The effects on your pet are related to how much blood is lost and where the bleeding occurs.
2. Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) in Dogs
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), also known as “DIC” or “Dysfibrinogen syndrome”, is a complex syndrome of disorders and deregulation of the coagulation.
3. Hemolytic Anemia in Dogs
Hemolytic anemia is a disease process in which the red blood cells, the cells that carry oxygen and impart a red color to blood, are destroyed, resulting in a decreased number in the bloodstream. This is often a rapidly life-threatening condition.
4. Histiocytosis
Histiocytosis is a disorder resulting from the proliferation or multiplication of cells involved in the inflammatory response. There are two types of histiocytosis: systemic histiocytosis and malignant histiocytosis.
5. Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia in Dogs (IMHA), Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia
IMHA, (also known as AIHA),is a disease in which the body’s immune system, which is designed to attack and kill germs, attacks and kills the body’s own red blood cells; it occurs more often in dogs than in cats and in middle aged females 3 to 8 years old.
6. Lymphangiectasia
Lymphangiectasia is an obstructive disorder characterized by marked dilation and dysfunction of the intestinal lymphatic system. This disorder results in a protein-losing enteropathy, and eventually, profoundly low blood protein levels develop.
7. Lymphedema
Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of protein-rich lymph fluid into tissue spaces caused by obstruction of flow in lymphatic vessels or through lymph nodes. It may be primary or secondary.
8. Thrombocytopenia in Dogs
Thrombocytopenia refers to an abnormally low blood-concentration of platelets, which are blood cells that promote blood clotting after injury to the lining of the blood vessels. When the concentration is too low, bruising and bleeding may occur.
9. Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD)
Von Willebrand’s disease (vWD) is caused by a deficiency of von Willebrand’s factor (vWF), one of the elements that allow blood to form clots. Von Willebrand’s disease can cause prolonged or excessive bleeding.
