Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD)

Follow-up care for a dog with Type I vWD is minimal. Unless the animal begins to bleed, which is unlikely in the absence of injury, no therapy is needed. However, these things may improve an affected dog's life.

  • Minimize the chance of injury by keeping your dog confined either in a fenced area or on a leash when outdoors.

  • If your dog should begin bleeding, seek veterinary assistance immediately.

  • Inform any veterinarian treating your dog about his vWD. This is especially important prior to surgical procedures, including dental cleanings.
