Blood & Plasma Transfusions

Blood and plasma transfusions are a staple in the medical field for a variety of reasons with the most common use being in emergency situations. Veterinary medicine is no different. There are a number of reasons why a blood and plasma transfusion would be recommended outside of an emergency situation. It can be used to help treat symptoms of anemia caused by disease, surgery, toxicity, or trauma.

Just as in human medicine, a blood transfusion can mean life or death in an emergency situation. Hospitals are always looking for blood donors! If you think your pet would be a good fit as an animal blood donor, let us know!
