1st Canine blood donation clinic

The Vaudreuil Veterinary clinic hosted its first canine blood donation clinic April 20th 2015. Five dogs graciously donated their blood during this evening!

The blood is chilled and shipped to the Canadian Animal Blood Bank (CABB) located at Red River College in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Within 48 to 72 hours, blood collected at the Vaudreuil Veterinary Clinic can then be used by any veterinary facilities all across Canada. One bag of blood can save up to 4 dogs!

Each participant received:

  • 1 credit of a blood product per year for the life of the pet
  • A free microchip
  • The collected blood is tested in Winnipeg for various type of disease such as the heartworm test
  • A CABB red scarf
  • A can of food of PURINA Veterinary diet as a treat after the procedure
  • A bag of food offered by PURINA Veterinary diet

Thank you very much to the participants and their owners! Thanks to Deana Fratino, Animal health technician, representative of the Canadian Animal Blood Bank in Quebec, and her volunter, Amanda Scholefield, Animal health technician! Finally, thanks to PURINA Veterinary diet for the donation of food.
