A generous blood donor
Brave girl Smidge gave a generous blood donation for an emergency case last Friday!
Blood donation is an incredible act, but is somewhat less known and celebrated when it comes to canines. Dogs can require blood transfusions in a variety of emergency situations, including poisoning or surgical cases. Additionally, blood can only be held for two weeks, so donors are constantly needed.
Healthy dogs weighing between 25 - 70kg and aged between 1 - 7 years old are eligible to donate blood, and are handsomely rewarded with a goody-basket for their bravery!
Dogs like Smidge regularly save lives in our community, but they can only help so many. If your pup fits the donation criteria, please consider nominating them as a donor.
