Canine Blood Drive – May 21, 2019

May 21, 2019

DONOR HEROES WANTED!

Just as we need blood donors for lifesaving measures, our pets also rely on donated blood in times of need. There is a national shortage of blood for dogs, and a single donation can save more than one life.

In partnership with Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital, we are hosting a blood donation drive at our hospital in May.

Check out the requirements below and maybe your dog will become a “Blood Donor Hero”.

What: Canine Blood Donation Screening
When: Tuesday, May 21, 2019
Time: Appointments available from 8am-2pm
Where: Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies (774 Maleta Lane, Castle Rock, CO 80108)

Canine Blood Donor Eligibility:

    • 1 – 6 years of age
    • Weight 55 lbs or more
    • Overall good health
    • Friendly disposition
    • Current on required vaccinations

STEP 1 – SCREENING

To make an appointment to have your dog screened for blood donor eligibility, please contact us at 303.660.1027 or info@vsrockies.com.

Note: Your dog will receive an initial blood screening test to determine if they are a favorable donor. Initial blood screening includes extended blood typing, chemistry and CBC, Heartworm test, and an Infectious disease screen.

STEP 2 – DONATION

If your dog qualifies to be a donor, we request that they donate six times annually. We will call and arrange the donations at a convenient time for you. Actual blood donation will take place at a later date.

All donors will receive compensation for participation.
