Abstract

A 5‐day‐old Simmental Heifer was evaluated for excessive bleeding from the skin following horse fly bites. A coagulation profile and platelet numbers were normal. In vitro platelet function, measured by whole blood aggregometry, was found to be abnormal when compared with age‐matched controls. Therefore, this defect in hemostasis was attributed to a qualitative defect in platelet function. Copyright © 1995, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
