The aim of the present study was to determine some coagulation parameters in cattle with left displacement of abomasum (LDA). Ten cattle with LDA (study group) and 10 clinically healthy cattle (control group) were included in the study. Platelet (PLT) counts, activated partial prothrombin time (APTT), prothrombin time (PT), fibrinogen and clotting times were measured before surgical intervention. All cattle in the Study group had no statistically significant differences for each parameter tested when compared with control group (P > 0.05). However, when the individual values of parameters of each cow were evaluated four cattle in the study group had abnormal APTT values (APTT >= 58.1 s). But showed no disorders that may be attributed to disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). The results of this Study showed that DIC might not be a serious problem in cattle with LDA.
