Your pet can help save lives. Up to 12 lives actually! With the help of both feline and canine blood donors, critical patients can receive life saving blood transfusions right here in our hospital. 

Critically ill patients often need blood or plasma. Why? Just like humans, animals can have a number of reasons they may need a blood donation. Whether underlying clotting disorders, trauma, cancer or the like, these patients may need a blood transfusion, and with your pets help, we can provide a life saving service.
