Factor VII Deficiency

Canine Factor VII (CFVII) Deficiency causes a mild to moderate bleeding tendency. The mutation responsible for CFVII Deficiency is on the second epidermal growth factor-like protein domain of the Factor VII gene. The condition may result in increased bleeding from an injury or after surgery. In rare cases an affected dog may require a blood transfusion.

VetNostic Laboratories’ genetic test for Factor VII Deficiency can reliably identify dogs that are either clear, or possess one or two copies of the Factor VII Deficiency causing gene. This clear, carrier, or affected result can help breeders determine which animals to include in their breeding program.
