Blood Donors

💉Blood Donors Save Lives!

If you would like your pet to be placed on our Blood Donor List, please let us know. When we require a donor we go through the list and call to see who is available to come in at that time. It is often urgent and can be afterhours but being on the list doesn't require you to be available at all times!


Dogs must be:

-over 25kgs
-up to date with all vaccinations (and heartworm prevention)
-between 1-8 years old
-for females, have never had a litter of puppies
-not on any other medication


Cats must be:

-over 4.5kgs
-between 1-8 years old
- up to date with an F3 vaccination
-indoor only cat
-not on any other medication


To be eligible donors dogs and cats must have never received a blood transfusion before. Pets can donate up to 4 times a year.

In exchange for your pets generosity you will be credited an annual health check and a 12 month supply of worming medication. If your dog ends up donating blood you will also be credited with an annual heartworm injection.
