Pulmonary thromboembolism was not suspected in our case, due to the absence of clinical signs and abnormalities found in the physical examination compatible with this disease.
Taking into account this case report and the incidence of thromboembolic events in human patients with IBD, further studies are required to investigate the rate of thromboembolism or hypercoagulability in dogs with inflammatory bowel disease.

Following the run-in phase, eligible patients (n=508) were centrally randomized to receive warfarin or matching placebo, and were stratified according to the clinical site, time since the index event, and whether this was the patient's first venous thromboembolism.
Patients were typical outpatients, although they had an increased risk of venous thromboembolism based on the significant number with a history of previous events and thrombophilic mutations.
The primary endpoint measured was recurrent venous thromboembolism.
Low-intensity warfarin reduced the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism by 64% (hazard ratio [HR]=0.
Among the acquired conditions associated with venous (and arterial) thromboembolism, a major role is played by the anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome (11) and moderate hyperhomocysteinemia (Table 1) (12).
The authors enrolled consecutive patients with at least one episode of documented venous thromboembolism and a population of controls matched for sex, age, and living conditions to the patient population.
However, if one considers the relatively low risk of thromboembolism associated with these two conditions (10, 15), it must be concluded that a general screening is not warranted.
