Major crossmatch compatibility of rabbit blood with rabbit, canine, and feline blood

Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.

TL;DR: Findings support allogeneic blood transfusions between rabbits being highly compatible and suggest rabbits have naturally occurring alloantibodies against both canine and feline red blood cells, however, feline red blood cells had a lower rate of in vitro incompatibility on major crossmatch, suggesting potentially higher in vivo compatibility if an emergency xenotransfusion is needed.
