Life Saving Blood Supplies for Pets in Crisis
Advancements in technology and veterinary medicine allow us safely draw and store blood from healthy pets for future use. The blood bank at Red River Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center helps our veterinarians save pets who require a blood transfusion as a result of trauma, illness, or surgery. In order to provide this much needed service, however, we need the help of local pets and their owners to keep our blood bank stocked.
If you believe your cat or dog would like to become a blood donor hero, we encourage you to fill out the appropriate form. We ask that you commit to a year of blood draws, which occur about every 8 weeks. In addition to being featured on the Hero Boards on our website, in our lobby, and on social media (with your permission), your pet will receive annual blood work and an examination at no cost on donation days. Heroes will also receive a gift bag filled with toys and treats! But, most importantly, our heroes will be helping Red River Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center save the lives of local cats and dogs!
