Nickie Torbet got in touch via Facebook to thank us for helping
her beloved Kassie in her time of need.
"Kassie is a 7 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and was
the only pup from her litter who survived. She is the only pet I
have and I live alone, so we have developed a very strong bond over
the years. Sadly, I know her life is fragile as she has a number of
ongoing health problems, which require careful management so her
quality of life isn't impacted.
However, in May this year, a vet noticed a mild heart murmur and
then a week later, she developed Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia
(AIHA). She was so weak she couldn't stand up and the vet promptly
tested her blood and took action with an emergency blood
transfusion, without which she would have died. It took a second
transfusion a couple of days later, and you wouldn't think she was
the same dog now! Her veterinary care was second to none and
without Pet Blood Bank UK, there wouldn't have been much they could
"Thank you" is such a small word and seems inadequate but I can
never properly express how grateful I am that PBB exists and how
fast we were able to get blood when she needed it most."
We have since managed to reunite Kassie with her donors, Hudson
