Blood typing:

Roughly 70% of the eligible canine blood donors in Canada type DEA 1 Positive. Acquiring sufficient DEA 1 Negative donors in Canada is a challenge. CABB asks veterinary practices to stock canine blood typing tests so type specific blood can be requested.  Not only is administering type specific blood safer for your patients, it helps us alleviate the difficulty of acquiring DEA 1 Negative blood.
