For example, von Willebrand’s disease (vWD) should be a top differential diagnosis in a young Doberman pinscher with epistaxis (and possibly other surface bleeding) as its only clinical sign. Neoplasia is more likely to occur in older animals, whereas an inﬂammatory lesion or nasal foreign body may be more common in younger animals. A complete history and physical examination are essential in helping to determine if the epistaxis is due to a local or systemic disorder.
