Research conducted by the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) into the administration of canine blood to cats is being used as part of a brand-new webinar series by the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA).
The webinar, which will be aired in June, will provide vets and vet nurses with an opportunity to listen to a discussion with the two lead researchers about the key findings of their study and how these findings may impact clinical practice. This RVC study is one of the two first papers to be discussed and peers from the veterinary community are invited to submit questions.
The research, which was published in the Journal of Small Animal Practice (JSAP), explored the use of a xenotransfusion protocol – in this case the transfer of blood from dogs to cats – and the outcome in recipient cats. The study has contributed towards helping inform vets all over the world about how dog blood can be used in this way.
