iliac artery thrombosis
in horses an acute onset is characterized by severe pain, even recumbency, and marked reduction of the amplitude of the digital arterial pulse. The affected limb is cold and is not used. The chronic disease is characterized by increasing weakness of the affected limb as exercise progresses. In both forms there is a unilateral abnormality of the iliac artery palpable per rectum.
Dogs and, more commonly, cats are affected by thrombosis of the aorta (saddle thrombus) or an iliac artery, usually in association with cardiac disease. Depending on the rate of development, the affected limb becomes weak, cold and painful, the pulse is weak, and the animal becomes distressed. See also aortic embolism.
