The aggressive therapy of anemia and coagulopathies with blood products is becoming more commonplace in veterinary practice. Emergency and critical care facilities often have in-house blood donors or easy access to a supply of blood products from a commercial source. This lecture will describe the concept of transfusion triggers and arterial content of oxygen. Various blood products and their components will be detailed to enable the clinician to deliver blood product therapy effectively.
