vWD Type II

Type II vWD is characterized by abnormal vWF, as opposed to low levels of normal vWF. This type is not as common as Type I, but a mutation causing it has been identified in some pointing breed and Deutch Drahthaar.

The Vetgen vWD type II test identifies the presence of this mutation and designates the tested dog as either clear, carrier, or affected for the disease.
