Can your dog help to save a life?

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Highcroft Veterinary Hospital hosts regular blood donation sessions on behalf of Pet Blood Bank. Our next collection session is on Tuesday 19th April; please register your interest through the Pet Blood Bank website now.

Pet Blood Bank UK collects regularly from willing doggy donors to ensure life-saving blood supplies are always available to help sick and injured dogs that need a blood transfusion. Unfortunately though, there still seems to be a national shortage of canine blood products.

We need more doggy donors!

All doggy donors should meet the following criteria:

• be between 1 and 8 years old

• weigh more than 25kg

• have a good temperament

• have never travelled abroad

• be up to date with all vaccinations

• not be on any medication

• be fit and healthy

Every dog is given a full health check prior to donating, plus plenty of cuddles and biscuits afterwards!

If you have a medium to large dog and you would like to investigate this further, visit www.petbloodbankuk.org to register your dog for our next session.
