How one pet saved another pet's life

Mackenzie was in and out of our hospital within an hour from start to finish. She required very little sedation during her blood donation. And she ate like a champ right after. 

Here’s Mackenzie on her way back home after saving another pet’s life by donating her blood at a very crucial time.

Just like in human medicine, blood and plasma products are a lifesaving resource for pet patients who are critically ill or injured. Unfortunately, blood can be hard to come by in an emergency—when every minute counts. 
While we always have blood products on hand, we’re always collecting more to ensure we never run low.  
That’s why Guardian Veterinary Specialists has an onsite blood bank program. This local, all-volunteer initiative aims to ensure that an ample supply of blood is always available for pets in need. Our inventory of blood and plasma products is donated by pets just like yours.
The donation process is simple and safe. And our donors are pampered with lots of affection and treats!

To show our appreciation, we offer many complimentary perks for pets and their owners. For more information click here.
