Blood Group Compatibility

In Dogs

THE DETERMINATION OF DEA 1.1 ANTIGEN IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED BEFORE ANY BLOOD TRANSFUSION TO AVOID A POTENT ALLOANTIBODY RESPONSE AGAINST THIS ANTIGEN AND TO AVOID ACUTE HAEMOLYTIC TRANSFUSION REACTION.

In Cats

THE PRESENCE OF NATURALLY OCCURRING ALLO ANTIBODIES IN TYPE A AND IN TYPE B CATS REQUIRES THAT BLOODTYPING BE PERFORMED PRIOR TO BLOOD TRANSFUSION TO AVOID ACUTE HAEMOLYTIC TRANSFUSION REACTION, AND IN BREEDINGS TO PREVENT NEONATAL ISOERYTHROLYSIS. BLOOD CAN BE TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE UMBILICAL CORD.
