Blood Donors – Could your Dog be a Life-Saver?

Blood Donors – Could your Dog be a Life-Saver?

sue blood donorDid you know that you could sign your dog up on our blood donors register?

 

We are always on the lookout for new dogs to add to our list of donors, as they are often needed at short notice, when we are not always able to reach all of our listed doggie owners!

For dogs to be able to donate blood, they need to meet the following criteria:

Be a fit and healthy adult aged 1-8 years
Be fully vaccinated
Not be on any medication
Never have travelled abroad
Weight at least 25kg
Have a good temperament
Never have received a blood transfusion themselves

 

Dogs are able to donate blood every 4 -6 weeks.

If your dog fits the above criteria and you would like to register them as a donor, please contact the surgery on 01325 380111 and become a doggie life-saver!
