Fish4Dogs are supporting Pet Blood Bank UK, the only charity that provides a canine blood bank service for all veterinary practitioners across the UK.
As part of their charitable remit, their aim is to advance animal health and welfare and to relieve suffering by providing quick and convenient access to blood.
Similar to the human blood service, dog owners take along their much loved canine companions to give blood at one of their many sessions across the country.
The blood is then taken to their state of the art processing centre in Loughborough where it is separated into red blood cells and plasma products, and then stored ready for despatch.
Over 1000 dogs needed a transfusion last year. Every unit of blood helps save up to four dog’s lives. There have been over 6,000 donors to date but Pet Blood Bank need more.
We’re celebrating all the canine companions who regularly give blood and save lives by supplying Pet Blood Bank UK with well-deserved Fish4Dogs treats for donation sessions.
