Pet Blood Bank: helping pets save lives

Pet Blood Bank UK help vets gives dogs lifesaving blood transfusions. Suitable dogs (and cats) can give blood to save the lives of other treasured pets. Just one donation has the potential to help up to four animals in need. Check out some of the canine heroes http://www.petbloodbankuk.org/vetprofessionals/casestudies.htm and their grateful doggy pals

At the minute, Pet Blood Bank can only transport blood given within a 2 hour drive of Loughborough in the English Midlands, but they’re trying to raise money for a mobile unit so dogs can donate blood all over the UK. In the meantime if you’re close to Loughborough, and you think your dog is calm and healthy enough to help, look here for upcoming blood drives in your area.
