Feline Crossmatch



Importance of crossmatching

Cats have one main blood group system named AB system with 3 types: blood type A which is the most frequent, blood type B and blood type AB. The presence of naturally occurring alloantibodies in type A and in type B cats requires that blood typing must be performed prior to ALL blood transfusions to avoid an acute hemotytic transfusion reaction. It is now well established that cats possess other blood group systems such as Mik antigen or other unknown systems.

According to recent publications, it is now highly recommended to perform a Crossmatch Test (XM) in cats before the first transfusion.
