Foresight Health® Von Willebrand Disease
Our Foresight Health® single test for Von Willebrand Disease is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing.
The guideline turnaround time for single tests is typically 10-12 working days after the swab arrives at the lab.
If you need more than two tests it is often more cost-effective to order the relevant Foresight Health® breed package.
Von Willebrand Disease (VWD) is a bleeding disorder which affects blood clotting. Affected dogs may have nosebleeds and bruise easily, as well as bleed heavily after injury or surgery. Most dogs will have a normal life expectancy but this condition should be noted to veterinarians in the case of surgery.
An autosomal recessive condition caused by a mutation in the VWF gene.
