The objective of the current study was to determine the immunological changes in canine blood donors in Romania. The data of the study is being collected since 2016 and is still in process of research. The samples are represented by serum antibodies IgG - Canine Parvovirus and IgG - Canine Distemper virus, which were analysed at each blood donation of dogs being part of the donation program. They fulfil the eligibility criteria of being clinically healthy with a completed vaccination schedule. The study is based on 17 canine blood donors (5 males/12 females), over one-year-old (2-4 years), with owners and living in similar environments. The ELISA VetLine Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) and VetLine Canine Parvovirus (CPV) kits from NovaTec (Immundiagnostica GMBH, Germany) were used following the kits manufacturer's recommendations. The analysis of the results obtained from the serum samples collected showed that no individual presented negative results (0/17-0%) below the protection standard on the two viral strains, all the serum samples having positive results (17/17-100%). The results indicate that repeated blood donation cannot influence the loss of post-vaccine antibodies.
