Blood Donor Programmes

Blood Donor Programme

Canine and Feline Blood Donor Programmes

A blood donor bank is set up in our practice to meet the ongoing needs to have blood to hand for medical emergencies. We have a pool of donors who may be called on to donate no more than twice in a 12 month period and we are always looking to add potential donors to this pool. You and your dog could literally save a life by donating.

Requirements for Blood Donation

  • Any dogs over 30kg.
  • Between the ages of 2 – 7.
  • No pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Not on any medication.

If you would like your dog to become a blood donor please contact us to speak to our registered veterinary nurse who will be happy to talk you through the procedure and book your appointment.
