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.

BLOOD TRANSFUSION HAS MANY USES

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.

HEALTH & SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

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
Dogs:
Age: one to eight years
Weight 50 pounds or greater, lean weight
