      If the blood of a dog is drawn out, can it be used by any other different animal, other than a dag? If so, explain how tis is possible.

      yes, blood fulfills the function of carrying oxygen/nutrients to tissues and also carrying wastes out. The problem is the immune system of the receiving organism might see it as a potential invader. If somehow this organism’s immune response was disabled, there seems no reason why this wouldn’t work..

      This would only work if the non-dog was kept in a sterile enviornment until the dog blood cells died off 30 days later…otherwise lack of an immune system means the non-dog could die of a common cold…

      I think providing pathogenless environ is practically impossible today. So, What if we can remove the dog’s self mrkers from the cells? I have heard that scientist R working on a homologus situation where they R trying to produce blood which lacks Ags of ABO system.

      I’ve heard of it, but am skeptical. A cell needs to have specific protein markers for self-recognition…lacking these markers invokes a non-self recognition response.
