Monitoring Blood Thinning Agents in Pets at Point-of-Care
What is detail of our Monitoring Blood Thinning Agents?
A PT/INR test helps ensure the effectiveness of the anticoagulant drug warfarin and that prothrombin time and internationally normalized ratio is appropriately prolonged. The APTT test is used primarily to investigate unexplained clotting or bleeding. The qLabs Vet test merges the two tests in an easy-to-use small-sample blood test that provides highly accurate results within 2-7 minutes. The dry reagent strips can be stored at room temperature for immediate use for up to 12 or 18 months, with no equilibration required. Clinical Applications: Determining the effectiveness of blood thinning agents To determine possible ingestion of rodent poison To identify coagulation factor deficiency To detect nonspecific antibodies associated with clotting episodes To monitor standard heparin anticoagulant therapy
