Thank you for considering the opportunity to have your pet become a vital blood donor for The Unusual Pet Vets.
The Unusual Pet Vets regularly seeks blood donors for a range of species, including rabbits, ferrets, bearded dragons, turtles, chickens, and various parrots. Your compassionate contribution could save the lives of our patients in critical need.
When the need for a blood donor arises, we will contact you via phone. As blood cannot be stored long-term, fresh donation is necessary. We will contact the next donor on our list if you’re unavailable.
Prior to each donation, our veterinarians will conduct a thorough health assessment to ensure your pet is fit for donation. A PCV/TP blood test will also be conducted to check for anaemia.
Typically, a mild sedative or short general anaesthetic will be administered to keep your pet calm and still during the procedure.
A small amount of blood will be carefully collected.
After donation, your pet will receive replacement intravenous fluids and be closely monitored to ensure their comfort and well-being.
As a token of our gratitude for your invaluable contribution, you will receive a $100 credit to your account each time your pet donates blood. This can be used at the clinic towards vet visits, food, or products.
