Doggies give blood :) this maybe an ongoing thing but it's about time they broadcast it on the tele!
Jill Macyshon reports on a growing demand for blood donor dogs.

We have quite afew Blood donors at our local Vet Emerg Clinic. They are offered free blood profiles ( a must to show dog is healthy for donanating) and vaccines (if owners want it).

they can only give blood once a month.

We had alittle dog that needed a blood transfusion.......we called a great dane in to be a donor..........The owner of the little dog couldn't believe her eyes and stated that "her dog always wanted to be a big dog". The little fella lived :)

Dogs donating blood is a wonderful thing! :D
