450ml collection volume. Each collection bag contains CPD anticoagulant. ***NOTE ONLY FOR USE BY A VET!***
Two blood products administration sets also included (can be used for either blood or plasma transfusions).
Great to have on hand in case of having an alpaca or llama with severe anaemia. This equipment may not be carried by large animal vets. Therefore if you have the kit available, you can have a blood transfusion performed during the first vet visit to a patient rather than having to wait a day or two for the vet to order in the required kit.
Blood transfusions are recommended for camelids when packed cell volume is below 12% (normal PCV is 24-28% in camelids): if PCV remains below this level for long, organ failure begins due to poor oxygenation of the tissues. We’ve included 2 administration sets here too because you can’t administer blood through a normal administration set: blood administration sets include a filter to catch any blood or protein clots that may harm the recipient. If you want to have a kit that includes all the necessary equipment for placing an IV catheter in the recipient (this is required for a blood transfusion), then look at our Blood Transfusion & IV Fluids Kit
