What Ridge Animal Hospital Blood Bank provides life-saving blood products to dogs in our area and to hospitals around the country.
Just like humans, pets with traumatic injuries or certain medical conditions require blood transfusions. The demand for blood products continues to increase and we are always welcoming new canine donors into our program. A single donation can save more than one life because both the red blood cells and the blood plasma are used.
If your dog qualifies to be a donor, we request that they donate six times annually. We will call and arrange the donations at a convenient time for you.
