Hopefully your cat will stay healthy throughout its life, but in the event of an accident, a cat may need a blood transfusion. The question is how does blood transfusion work with felines?

Generally blood transfusions work the same as with people. You need to match a blood donor’s blood type with the patient’s blood type such as type A blood. The hard part is finding a donor cat because there are risks to the donor cat as well as to the patient cat.
