Alvedia Blood Typing Quick Test for Canine
Importance of blood typing
Transfusion has taken an increasingly important role in the life support of canine and feline patients. Thus, the need for quick and accurate blood typing has now been recognized in order to assure safe and efficient transfusion.
It is now essential to perform blood typing to save animal lives in case of:
- Traumatic shock
- Some infectious diseases
- Surgical procedures
- Iron deficiency
- Severe anemia
- Spleen injury
- Acute hemolysis syndrome
- Severe bleeding after diseases and shocks
The determination of DEA 1 antigen is strongly recommended before any blood transfusion to avoid a potent alloantibody response against this antigen and to avoid acute hemolytic transfusion reaction.
