immunofluorescence: human vs dog

From:a i d a n s c h u r r <>

Hi all,

I have a 'standard' panel of direct immunofluorescence (DIF) 
antibodies (Dako IgA, IgG, IgM, C3c, C1q and Firbinogen), all of 
which are anti-human.  I have been asked to do DIF on a bit of dog 
paw, but am unsure if they will cross react.  My gut feeling is that 
they will, as these are fairly 'general' molecules...  Can anyone 
shed any light on this for me?

Many thanks,
Aidan, New Zealand.
