Would you consider having your dog or cat join our blood donor program? If your answer is yes, read on:
We’re very grateful to debonair Declan and his gracious family for enrolling him in our Blood Donor Program. We connected with his family through our Facebook page because his owner wanted to help save another precious pet’s life. He was so well- behaved that he didn’t need sedation during his blood donation. Good boy!
Dutiful Duke belongs to one of our wonderful long-time veterinary assistants. Buddy, our critically ill patient, needed two transfusions so we’re grateful to Duke and his caring owner for providing that extra life-saving blood supply that enabled him to survive and thrive. Thank you, Duke! You’re royalty in our book!
Beautiful Buddy was brought to our 24/7 Emergency Service in October 2021 when he was seven months old. Our specialized Internal Medicine Service diagnosed him with Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). Buddy required several blood transfusions to save his life. Our specialists also prescribed several medications. His devoted owner recently told us that he’s doing very well. His family veterinarian is monitoring him for the best long-term care and is able to start reducing his medications. Go, Buddy!

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.
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!
