Blood transfusions have many uses and can be critical for lifesaving procedures. Blood loss that occurs suddenly due to trauma may require an emergency transfusion to save a patient’s life. However, not all blood transfusion situations are related to an injury. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, surgical patients, pets with advanced kidney or liver disease, cats with feline leukemia, and pets with bleeding or clotting disorders are some examples of other patients that may require transfusion with blood or blood products.
Administering a transfusion safely requires a highly skilled and experienced staff. Fortunately, our healthcare team is experienced in all aspects of transfusion medicine, including safe harvesting of blood from donor animals, selecting the appropriate blood product for a patient, monitoring for complications such as transfusion reactions, and continuing to provide expert critical care to patients during and after transfusion.
Our transfusion service allows us to provide blood and blood products for veterinary patients’ medical, surgical, or emergency needs. Our staff has been extensively trained and will handle your pet with care and compassion.
