In patients with haemostatic disorders it can be difficult to determine whether this is primary or secondary or anything more complicated. This fundamentally impacts both treatment and prognosis. Mark will cover how to approach patients with primary haemostatic disorders and the current options for management in primary care practice particularly when restrictions such as those imposed by Covid are in place.
BSc BVSc Cert SAM Dip ECVIM-CA MRCVS
This talk will cover disorders of secondary haemostasis. Fergus will explain the clotting cascade, which clotting factors are important and how can we measure any deficiency and discuss the treatment of acquired and congenital coagulation disorders including the use of blood products.
The use of blood transfusions in veterinary practice has increased dramatically in recent years. Providing safe and effective transfusion therapy is essential. Acute haemolytic transfusion reactions due to blood group incompatibilities between recipient and donor are serious complications, but are mostly avoidable when transfusing dog and cat blood typed and cross matched blood.
During this presentation, Ludivine will review the different blood types of these 2 species, the ones we all know, but also those which were discovered more recently and describe the utility and application of different techniques used in blood typing and cross matching.

Immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia is one of the most commonly encountered haematological emergencies seen in practice and can have a significant mortality associated.
