So often cater to large number of female dogs in routine clinical medical oncology in small animals. Epidemiologically, the mammary neoplasias affecting mainly older dogs not spayed or neutered after several heats, with no racial predisposition. However, hardly possible to report laboratory findings directly or indirectly related to the neoplastic process. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the coagulation of 36 dogs suffering from mammary cancer, diagnosed clinically and confirmed histopathologically. It was possible to identify changes such as decrease of TTPA (activated partial thromboplastin time), thrombocytosis, thrombocytopenia, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). It was concluded that the alterations in coagulation of female dogs with mammary neoplasms were more significant in dogs suffering from mammary tumors in stage V.
