The SASH Vets Canine Blood Bank needs your dog’s help to save other doggy lives. Many of their pet patients require life-saving blood transfusions for various conditions that cause acute bleeding or anaemia.
The following check-list is required for your dog to become a donor:
– Between two and eight years old
– Weighs at least 25 kg and is not overweight (smaller amounts may be collected from smaller dogs)
– Will be able to lie still for five to 10 minutes
Prior to being accepted as a donor, your dog will undergo a full physical exam and screening blood tests. The collection itself takes about five to 10 minutes and your dog will be given a high energy meal and lots of praise afterwards! Your dog will also be given a bag of super premium dog food to take home as a thank you for being a blood donation hero.
For more information or to register your dog as a blood donor, call SASH on 02 9889 0289 or email firstname.lastname@example.orgCheck out the latest animal attractions and events at our all-new DOGSLife Directory
