Could your dog or cat be a blood donor?

While in the waiting room at the Ennetseeklinik (in ZG, which also serves as the area's 24/7 emergency clinic), I noticed a sign-up sheet for canine and feline blood donors.

If you have a dog or cat who qualifies, and if you are interested, perhaps you might contact the clinic for further information:

http://www.ennetseeklinik.ch/de/Home.html

Dogs:
1-10 years old
25kg or more
vac'd, wormed, not on meds
Tolerant of handling

Cats:
1-15 years old
4kg or more
vac'd, wormed, not on meds
Tolerant of handling

I know that the Tierspital in ZH also has a blood bank, and I would guess that other large clinics might as well.

If you think your cat or dog might be able to donate blood, have a chat with your primary vet or call one of the clinics for more information on requirements (which may vary) and on the process.

The dogs and cats who donate blood are, quite literally, lifesavers - as are their owners. So thanks to all.

Re: Could your dog or cat be a blood donor?

My cousin had a retired racing greyhound. She would bring it in religiously for blood donations whenever possible.
Seems like a nice system. If I had a pet I would do it, since I don't donate blood myself

Re: Could your dog or cat be a blood donor?

So, at the animal hospital the other day I was asked if our dog could donate blood. They have a very sick puppy who needs a transfusion and they would be grateful if we could help. I said of course we would.

First they drew a small sample to test and type. What matters with dogs is whether the blood is positive or negative. Then they take max 50 cc.

Now our dog has a blood donor card Of course he got treats!

We have to go back this week and I hope to hear good news about the puppy.

Kudos to you and most importantly to your dog, Mrs D. You two have done a very good thing!

Here's hoping the poorly puppy pulls through - fingers crossed.
