I found this study funded by Morris and i thought I'd post it here for those who are facing amputation to ask their surgeons about prior to surgery.

I know it says greyhounds, but any breed can have a bleeding issue. I lost 2 adoptable greyhounds due to bleed outs when I was Director of Adoptions at The Woodlands. It's sad.

If it only saves one bleed out....well, you know what I mean.

D08CA-068: “Aminocaproic Acid in the Prevention of Postoperative Bleeding in Greyhounds”

principal investigator: Dr. Guillermo Couto, The Ohio State University
needs sponsorship
Co-sponsors: Greyhound Rescue Adoption Team - Buffalo

year: 1 of 2: $82,253.00

More than 120,000 retired racing greyhounds now live in U.S. homes as pets. About one-quarter of these dogs experience abnormal bleeding after routine spay/neuter surgery, even though they have normal blood tests and don't bleed during surgery. A drug called aminocaproic acid strengthens clot formation and has been used in people to decrease the need for blood transfusions during certain surgeries. The drug also has been shown to be safe in dogs when given orally. Researchers will give this drug to greyhounds undergoing routine spay/neuter surgery to determine whether it will significantly decrease the frequency and severity of bleeding after surgery

Janie, thank you for being so thoughtful and posting this info. The more Grey lovers that know about it, the better.

We are learning so much about Greys from you, thanks!
