My dog has contracted Babesiosis and her HCT is only 15%. The vets that I went to recommended to perform a blood transfusion for her. (I went to 2 different clinics to confirm her illness.) However, she is blood type of DEA 1.1 negative, which I had difficulty finding. Most donors are positive. Vet 1 said there would be any severe problems for first timers if both are of different blood type. Vet 2 advised me not to as negative and positive will cause more problems. I would like to seek your opinion regarding this matter. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you have.
Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience caused.
