This is a total Hail Mary, just in case anyone has any experience. Foal is 3+ weeks. Since birth he has experienced skin and mucosal eruptions that bleed profusely. The vet first thought it was liver related and I understand that a foal’s liver does not produce all the clotting proteins it will until 6 months. Now they are thinking haemophilia. I’ve done a google search and also found info re: Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia, Bernard-Soulier syndrome, and von Willebrand’s disease (which I understand is an issue with German Shepards).
Has anyone had a foal with a clotting disease? I’m thinking the prognosis is not good.
This is not my foal. He is being seen by the vet regularly and the vet is consulting with a major university as well. I just wanted to see if anyone had any experience they could share.
