Anticoagulant Testing in Pets

A number of conditions can require that pets – in particular, dogs and cats – be tested for blot clotting capability. These situations can include accidental ingestion of rodent poisons, which use anti-coagulants. Thousands of cases of pet poisoning by rodent bait are reported each year. Additionally, cardiomyopathy in cats can require testing when anti-coagulants are used therapeutically. Chronic liver disease and sulfa-type antibiotics have also been known to increase blood clotting time and may require pet testing.

Using a point-of-care test such as Micropoint’s qLabs® Vet Coag Panel 2 (PTT/aPTT combined test) enables vets to avoid the involved and lengthy process of sending samples out to a lab for analysis. Using the qLabs hand held device vets can obtain results in 7 minutes, reducing lab costs and staff time.
