Event description

Description

Vets Now and Pet Blood Bank UK are inviting Glasgow's dog owners to a free blood typing session to help recruit more canine lifesavers. The event will be held at Vets Now's pet emergency hospital in Glasgow, and forms part of the celebrations marking ten years of working with the charity.

Owners will discover their dog's blood type at this unique event. This is a valuable piece of information as canine blood transfusions are often needed in a pet emergency and donor blood is essential in many cases that we treat at Vets Now, Glasgow. That's right - similar to humans, dogs have Negative and Positive blood types, and the demand for Negative blood for canine transfusions is a constant challenge.

Just one unit of donated blood can save up to four dogs’ lives, and having easy access to blood when it’s needed is crucial for the UK’s sick and injured dogs.

To attend the blood typing event, your dog can be of any breed but should be fit and healthy.

If you're interested in attending, please select a 10-minute appointment slot which will be reserved especially for you and your dog. If you have more than one dog please select more than 1 appointment slot.
