Blood Donor Day with Pet Blood Bank

 

 Wednesday 17th July

The Pet Blood Bank are coming to our hospital!

BLOOD DONORS NEEDED

 Register you dog as a blood donor online

Pet Blood Bank uk is a charity which provides a national canine blood bank open to all UK veterinary practitioners.

Just like the human blood service, Pet Blood Bank collects blood from donors at organised collection sessions. This blood can then be processed and stored to use when its needed most.

Just one donation of blood can help save up to four other lives!

Pool House has called on the services of the Pet Blood Bank on a number of occasions, supplying blood products to provide transfusions which have gone on to save a dogs life. This service has helped to advance veterinary medicine and has improved our ability to treat trauma and blood disorder patients. Its for this reason that we want to help the Pet Blood Bank continue their excellent work.

As with human blood banks – the Pet Blood Bank relies on regular blood donors to keep their stocks replenished and we are looking for blood donors for our Blood Donor Day.

Could your dog be a blood donor?

If you would like your dog to be considered as a blood donor please check they meet the following criteria:

  • Be aged between one and eight years old
  • Weigh more than 25kg
  • Have a good temperament
  • Never have travelled abroad
  • Be up to date with all vaccinations
  • Not be on any medication
  • Be fit and healthy
