Dog's name is called Lafite(shi zhu/pekingnese mixed) and now in Gasing Vet hospital. Please call Jackie 012-3392340 if you can help. Donors must be at least 1 years old and weigh minimum 10kgs.

Franky, what i was told is they don't have blood grouping. In most cases, dogs can generally accept blood from other dogs. But in this case, her body was rejecting most of it. The vet had to do a cross match to get an almost perfect blood match. Only 1 out of the 12 dogs volunteered that was found to be a suitable match for her that day. You can only take approx 200 cc from a donor max at a 3 month interval.

Thanks for asking this question.
Dog blood type is different than the types found in people. There are 6 major blood types. 42% of dogs have the same type which is universal. Recipients need to be matched to the appropriate blood type.
There are 6 major dog blood types out of a possible 12, but 40-45 % of all dogs have a universal dog blood type. Sixty percent of Greyhounds have a universal blood type. Boxers, Irish Wolfhounds, German Shepherds, Dobermans, and Pit Bulls are often universal donors as well. This is important because only dogs with a universal dog blood type (DEA 1.1 negative) can be blood donors. Most dogs can receive the universal dog blood type, regardless of their own blood type. Tests are available to ensure a good "cross match" between your dog and the blood donor.
In an emergency a dog can receive a transfusion from another dog that is of a different type since dog blood does not have antibodies. After the first transfusion antibodies develop which require that a good "major crossmatch" is achieved between compatible donors.
