Read the articles by Dr. Stack on http://www.greythealth.com/ Editing to add this link does not have bleeding info.

 

I don't have the link for it but someone here should be able to post a link to bleeding from the Greyhound Health Initiative. It's in the July 2017 issue.

 

Amicar (Aminocaproic Acid) is what is used for bleeders post op, including dentals. Several years ago the company that made it changed hands and the price went way over $500 for a week's treatment. Some folks have been able to find it for a bit less.

 

According to Dr Couto (Greyhond Health Initiative), the use of Tranexamic Acid is an acceptable, much lower-priced alternative. You would need a prescription from your vet to get it at any pharmacy. I get it at Walmart's pharmacy for less than $35. Note that this is an off-label use since this medicine is primarily used for heavy menstruation in women.

 

Neither of those meds is something you dispense yourself without the go-ahead from your vet. That includes emergencies or preparing for a surgery or dental (that might require extractions).

 

It is best to have the TA on hand now.

Ducky, I couldn't find any articles about bleeding on the Stack site. Do you have a specific page you can link?

 

I have a greyhound who is also vulnerable to excessive bleeding. Basically it's a failure of their blood to form clots and stop bleeding on their own. What the Amicar or TA does is help that factor. You will want to talk with your vet carefully before any procedures, and begin either the Amicar or TA a few days prior to her going in.

 

You should have some on hand for emergencies. We also keep an herbal product called "yunan baiyao" in the house. It helps stop minor wounds from bleeding (toenails, small cuts and scrapes, etc) when applied topically. It can also be given internally for larger wounds. It's fairly cheap at Walmart online.

Chris, you're right. Dr Stack's page did not discuss bleeding.

 

I can't seem to access the July 2017 GHI article on bleeding. Can anyone help with that?

I had a houndie(Cash) that nearly died during spaying due to that. Extreme skill on the board certified vet's part and a transfusion saved her. Never caused her any issues but I always had some Quick Clot on hand just in case. QC or other similar product could make the difference between life and death. Most folks prefer the Quick Clot Combat Guaze.
