Help save a life

Just like humans, if animals lose blood due to trauma, become anaemic, undergo major surgery, or get cancer, they can require a blood transfusion to survive. The Animal Hospital operates a fully stocked dog and cat community blood bank program, providing small animal patients with the best possible transfusion care.
