Could your cat give blood?

Dear Pet Owner,

 

This is a very important appeal to cat owners to help us establish a Blood Donor Register at Village Vets clinic.

 

Some pets, due to injury or illness, require blood transfusions as part of the treatment we provide. In these circumstances we need to be able to have a list of willing donors who we can call upon to help.

 

Before enrolling we would ask you to bring your cat to a free health check to see if they are likely to be a suitable donor.

 

Criteria to be a cat donor:

·                    Healthy & fully vaccinated

·                    Not too stressed at the vets

·                    Less than 8 years old

·                    Over 4.5 kg in weight (preferably 5kg, but not obese)

 

If a donation is required, we take a blood test to ensure that your cat is free from certain viruses, is a match with the recipient cat and has a good supply of red blood cells.

 

Any cat that gives blood will receive their next vaccination free of charge as a thank you from us.

 

If you think you cat fits the above criteria and would like to help us continue this important service, or require any further information then please either email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call on 020 8360 2020

 

Many Thanks

From all at Village Vets
