Pet Blood Bank UK is a charity that provides a national
canine blood bank. Our products and services are available to
all UK veterinary professionals.
We collect blood from donors at organised collection sessions in
locations throughout the UK. The blood donated at these
sessions is taken to our state of the art processing unit in
Loughborough where it is processed into red blood cells and plasma
products. It is then stored, ready to be supplied to
veterinary practices across the UK.
Pet Blood Bank uk supports the advancement of veterinary
transfusion medicine. Our highly qualified staff are
passionate about sharing their knowledge in order to increase
awareness and understanding of the role blood products can play in
helping to save lives.
Lectures on blood banking and basic transfusion medicine are
provided across the UK with educational workshops held at
veterinary conferences, universities and in veterinary
We also have an ongoing research programme into the welfare
aspects of and the science behind the production and clinical use
of blood products.
