Ruben to the Rescue...Posted - 07-07-2017
Just like in human medicine sometimes our four legged friends require blood transfusions and this is exactly what happened yesterday here at Vale Referrals...
To The Rescue
One of our referral clients was in need of an urgent blood tranfussion and Ruben the Hungarian Vizlsa (who belongs to our one of our staff members) came to the rescue at short notice.
The Perfect Patient
There are certain criteria that donating dogs have to meet and being calm and able to lie still whilst the blood is taken is one of them, Ruben excelled at this and was the perfect patient meaning a quick and seamless process.
Looking for Donors
We work closely with the Pet Blood Bank UK, the only charity that provides a canine blood bank service for all veterinary practitioners across the UK and they are always looking for donors.
They do visit us here at Vale Referrals for donor sessions so please keep on eye our website and social media for future dates. You can visit the website
