Wright Animal Hospital's Pet Blood Donor Program

Dog and Cat Blood Donors NeededThe Wright Animal Hospital Team has created a blood donor program for our beloved dog and cat patients. A donation of blood means giving the gift of life. Emergency blood donors are needed for emergency treatments, trauma patients, major surgeries and anemic patients.

We are looking for 5 dog heroes and 5 cat heroes to be a part of our program. If your pet qualifies, we ask that you be available with little notice, as most cases will need blood within a few hours of arrival to the hospital.

There are many perks and benefits for your pet if they are a part of the blood donor program including discounted annual exams, free blood work and free blood typing, to name a few.
