Canine Blood Drive – May 21, 2019

May 21, 2019


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
    • Receives monthly heartworm prevention
  • Never received a blood transfusion


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

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.


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.
