Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve. It is important to note that bruising or bleeding may lead to life-threatening consequences.

It is important to monitor your pet very closely and note the frequency, severity, or intensity of bruising and/or bleeding.

Administer all prescribed medications as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet. Never use medications that your veterinarian has not recommended. It is important to use the medication only at the dosage and frequency recommended.

Return for follow up visits as directed by your veterinarian. Repeated measurement of platelet counts and clotting tests may be of utmost importance in some cases.

Avoid any medications or substances that may be cause or exacerbate (worsen) bleeding and other clinical signs.

Do not breed animals with inherited bleeding disorders.
