Could your pet be a blood donor?
This handsome boy is Hendrix and belongs to our nurse, Jess. In May, he was a blood donor for one of our patients and was very brave!
Although there is a pet blood bank, it only currently stores dog blood. This is because cats have to be sedated and dogs do not, so usually a staff pet is drafted in if a donor is required.
We blood type pets in just the same way as in people.
Every 4 months the Pet Blood Bank run donation days at our Long Eaton branch for dogs, for more information see: www.petbloodbankuk.org or phone us.
