Cat Blood Typing Day | 21 April 2018
04 April 2018
We are inviting people to bring their cats along to our cat blood typing event on Saturday 21st April at Pride Veterinary Centre.
The aim of this event is to increase our feline blood donor list.
Why Are We Looking For Feline Blood Donors?
Feline blood donors are regularly needed to donate blood for patients requiring a blood transfusion following trauma or illness.
Unlike dogs, we are unable to store feline blood so we require a list of donors to call upon when an emergency arises.
What Will Happen On The Day?
The day will be run by our own medicine nurses. Appointments will be allocated to take a blood sample for blood typing and discuss the blood donation process in more detail.
Is My Cat Eligible To Donate Blood?
Your cat must meet certain criteria to safely donate blood:
- Over 4kg
- Age between 1-8years
- No health concerns
- Fully vaccinated
They should also have a good temperament.
For more information, please call 01332 678333 to request a call back from our medicine nurses
