So a large number of red blood cells in the normal blood would be dead after they receive blood transfusion. Then nitrogenous wastes are produced, which increases the level of toxic substances in the blood. Kidney has to endure the increased strain and may have further damage, so blood transfusion is not suggested for them unless they have a life danger.
