Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coagulation disorders in dogs and cats are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Identification of some coagulation abnormalities such as hyperfibrinolysis or thromboembolism is challenging despite the availability of viscoelastic coagulation testing, and the pathophysiology of many coagulopathies is still mainly unknown or extrapolated from studies in people.

Further research for straightforward diagnosis, identification of pathomechanisms, and appropriate treatment is needed for the successful management of coagulopathies in dogs and cats. Interaction with each other, sharing of experiences, and publication in a timely manner play a crucial role in achieving these goals. With the Special Issue “Coagulopathies in Dogs and Cats: Diagnosis, Pathomechanisms, and Treatment”, we invite you to submit studies prospectively or retrospectively investigating any objective regarding coagulopathies in dogs and cats. The aim of this Special Issue is to collate a body of work on the subject of coagulopathies in companion animals and to demonstrate and share current standards and new insights as well as future solutions of this important hemostatic abnormality.

I look forward to your submissions!

Thank you,

Dr. Nadja E. Sigrist
Guest Editor
