Abstract:
Platelets are the cellular elements in blood along with the erythrocytes and leukocytes. Both increase as well as the decrease in the number and functioning of circulating platelets is detrimental to life of the individual. Increase in the number and functioning of platelets lead to thrombosis in vital arteries and obstruct the blood flow. Decrease in the number and functioning of platelets lead to bleeding and death. Compared to human beings, canines are more often presented with more cases of platelet reduction or thrombocytopenia than thrombotic episodes. Hence this article is aimed at discussing the current concepts and understanding of the causes, mechanism, diagnosis and management of thrombocytopenia in dogs.
