Blood is a life-saving product. Healthy donors of the same species are required to meet the needs of many animals.
The blood donation process is a full day visit that starts with a veterinarian ensuring that the donor is in good health by taking a small blood sample and testing it for heartworm, Lyme disease, two other tick-borne diseases, red blood cell count, and organ function. The donor is sedated to reduce potential anxiety and reduce the time required for the donation. A technician monitors the donor until the effects of the sedation resolve.
If you have a dog that is over 50 lbs and you would like to enroll them in the blood donor program, please contact us for further information. Dogs can safely donate every 60 days.Request Appointment
