Abstract

Background: Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (IMT) is the most common cause of severe thrombocytopenia (<30000 platelets/µl) in dogs and at this level or below there is an increased risk of spontaneous body surface bleeding (cutaneous and mucosal). Despite this, some patients with IMT are asymptomatic with no evidence of bleeding, whereas others have fever, splenomegaly and other signs caused by bleeding. Signs of bleeding from thrombocytopenia can overlap with signs of platelet dysfunction, von Willebrand's disease and vascular disease. IMT is much rarer in cats than dogs, but the pathophysiology and diagnostic and...
