RapidVet-H Canine DAL


RapidVet-H Canine DAL is intended for use to classify dogs as DAL positive or negative.

This information can be essential in donor selection, especially in the Dalmatian, Doberman, Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso breeds, which reportedly have a higher percentage of DAL-negative blood types. It is also useful in determining the cause of an incompatible crossmatch between DEA 1 compatible dogs.

As many as 98% of canines, including blood donors, carry the DAL antigen. This antigen elicits strong immunogenicity. Sensitisation through transfusion can occur in dogs that lack it.

DAL-negative blood types are more common in certain breeds and they are more at risk of delayed and acute haemolytic transfusion reactions if transfused with DAL-positive blood.
