Why do animals need blood transfusions?
Every day hundreds of dogs are in need of blood transfusions. Just like people, some dogs lose large amounts of blood due to surgery/trauma or are in need of large amounts of blood due to auto-immune diseases/other illnesses. As such, canine blood donation has become more imperative than ever. However, in order to help every pet and family in need of a blood transfusion, we rely on the invaluable contributions of our canine donors. As the pet population continues to grow, so does the number of pets who require blood transfusions.
