Yes, i think that tissue rejection would occur.

get coagulated by antibodies and those coagulated blood will block your bloodvessel and at last, there's vessel rupture.....at least, that's what I think..:wink:

Well...how much blood are you talking about and what type of blood...like what species and what form (plasma, red blood cells, whole blood, hemoglobin, albumin, platelet enriched plasma, etc...) ???

You could always take your blood, separate the red cells from the plasma and take the donor's blood...separate their red cells from the plasma...add a drop of your RBC's to the donor plasma, then a drop of donor RBC's to your plasma and look at it under a microsope...

My guess is that agglutination will occur...whihc would be bad news for you...intravascular hemolysis....badness.


In veterinary medicine, we give dogs and cats bovine hemoglobin...we give them human albumin and we can sometimes transfuse between species...like in reptiles and in some rodents...

But if you put a very small dose....um, I can think that it will be coagulated and then..give the rest to your macrophage..:lol:

Hmmm. I guess I'm thinking of proper transfusions where anti-coagulants are added to wholeblood during collection to ensure coagulation does not occur.

You will mutate in half dog half man and be hunted by a top secret organisation who want to study you in a laborartory.

If you are talking about taking a syringe sticking a dog with it and then injecting it into yourself. Depending on the dosage it could kill you. This is why we don't just give any blood to humans. Hell human blood of a different type can kill you.

NO, your body would not accept it...in fact, quite the opposite would happen...the reactions would become more severe with each exposure.

I can give a blood transfusion to a patient and 48 hours later I have to use a different donor because the patient developed an immune reaction. Even those who were once compatible can become incompatible within 24 hours. With transfusion medicine reactions, the severity increases with exposure.

I've seen tranfusions go bad...it's not pretty at all.
