blood bank

In routine veterinary practice, there are numerous situations that require the use of blood transfusions or its derivatives.

 

The first blood transfusion successfully performed in dogs dates back to 1665 in England, performed by the physicist Richard Lower.

In the last 10 years, numerous advances have been made in transfusion techniques, such as the typing of different blood groups, which have made this technique safer and more effective.

Furthermore, the use of blood products has provided the ability to optimize bank resources and reduce the side effects derived from the administration of whole blood.
