Blood Donor Program

Oklahoma Animal Blood BankJust like in human medicine, there are some cases where a blood transfusion can save a beloved pet's life. But... for us to offer the quality medicine you've come to expect from Neel Veterinary Hospital, we need your help.
In order to ensure that we always have blood products on hand, we need a team of canine and feline donors. A pet's donation every three to six months will enable us to offer life saving blood in emergency situations to animals that can't afford to wait. And by utilizing donations from your pets, donor animals can spend their lives in a good home rather than in the confines of a hospital.


There are several reasons an animal might need a blood transfusion. Whole blood is transfused to critical patients and is used in trauma cases such as animals hit by cars. It is also used for internal bleeding and in emergency surgery as well as to treat other metabolic problems such as kidney failure, clotting problems or tick borne diseases. Plasma is transfused in puppies with the Parvo virus to help aid them in recovery.


To insure that all of our blood products are of premium quality, we have developed specific criteria for evaluating the heath status of potential donors. Blood screenings are performed annually, including a complete blood count, chemistry panel and other disease testing. Donors must also meet several criteria to be considered for the program

Animals can donate blood as often as once every three months. The process is usually very quick and has no lasting effects on your pet. Normally, your pet will donate on a prearranged day. There are also “perks” available for donors as a way to say “Thank you” for helping us save lives.
