Once accepted into the program, we will ask that you visit our blood donor clinic every three months for a blood donation. A small area on the dog’s neck will be shaved. We will collect approximately 450 ml (1 pint) of blood during this painless procedure. Sedation or anesthetic is not required during the donation which lasts for approximately five minutes. The process will not jeopardize your dog’s health.
When the blood donation is completed, we will process the donation into blood components. These blood components will then be available to veterinarians across Canada to aid ill and injured dogs.
We need you and your dog to continue to meet the growing demand for blood products. Please help us! Contact your veterinarian today!
To sign up your dog as a blood donor, print this form and take it to your veterinarian.
