Have Your Dogs Given Blood?

While not something that all pet owners utilize (or even know about), animal blood banks are key for furry families' emergency surgeries and other procedures as a result of accidents and illnesses.

Without generous donors — like Jackson here — veterinary surgeons couldn't do their lifesaving work. Seen here is Eastern Veterinary Blood Bank in Severna Park, MD, where Dr. Ann Schneider and veterinary assistant Dave Anderson soothe the pooch as the fluid is collected. Have any of your pets donated blood, or used blood from others?

I didn't even know something like this existed!!! Very awesome. :) Like Yoga said, I am not sure they would go for it. Madison would be okay with it though.

I never knew this existed. I would do it if I knew where although I don't know how they would keep my dogs calm enough while it goes on.

This whole topic never even crossed my mind until my co-worker's cat needed a blood transfusion. I think most people wouldn't mind donating their pet's blood if they were even aware there was a need.
