Von-Willebrand-disease Type 1 (VWD1 Dog)

Von Willebrand disease type 1 (VWD1) is a blood coagulation disorder. The Von Willebrand factor plays an important role in blood clotting. If the disease occurs, there is a deficiency of this factor or it is dysfunctional, which causes the affected animals to show symptoms such as intensive and persistent bleeding when injured (e.g. also after operations).

The disease (type 1) occurs in the Doberman. The inheritance is autosomal recessive.
