Canine Blood Donation


Recommended Posts

Joy is donating blood for the first time. This is the first time I've had a dog who has donated blood. Is there anything I need to know? I'm sure Penn Vet will give me care instructions.

Jake would like me to make sure I remind you that hero doggies always deserve a plain hamburger after donating :D

 

He is usually very good, but lately he seems to not want to go in the back. Therefore, I think we're going to take a month off and see how it goes after that. Good luck!

It turns out that Joy is quite unique among greyhounds. Instead of a negative blood type, she's positive so she could not donate blood. I called the vet to let them know and asked them to feel free to call me if they every needed a positive blood type for a transfusion.

 

She is getting the cookie I got her anyway. She was so good today.

Oh well hope joy enjoyed the trip out & cookie. My grey Hattie is also positive type, but the blood bank here accepts both types so she can donate.

Ours does, too. Nixon and Ruby are both + , but they still donate.
