A generous donation

Our brave Heidi saved another life after donating blood to a sick patient.

Heidi is a regular dog blood donor, and rushed to the aid of one of our sick patients this week to offer a life-saving transfusion. Blood donation is an incredible act, but is somewhat less known and celebrated when it comes to canines. Dogs can require blood transfusions in a variety of emergency situations, including poisoning or surgical cases. Additionally, blood can only be held for two weeks, so donors are constantly needed.
Healthy dogs weighing between 25 - 70kg and aged between 1 - 7 years old are eligible to donate blood, and are handsomely rewarded with a goody-basket for their bravery!
Dogs like Heidi regularly save lives in our community, but they can only help so many. If your pup fits the donation criteria, please consider nominating them as a donor.
Give us a call on (02) 69 623 142 to inquire about doggy blood donation.
