On the 14th of June, we'll be joining countries around the globe in celebration of World Blood Donor Day. This year we’re taking the opportunity to raise awareness that dogs need blood just as much as we do by working with emergency and critical care provider Vets Now to run a free blood typing day for dog owners at their emergency hospital in Swindon.
Vets Now have been a longstanding supporter of PBB since our inception over 10 years ago, and with their continued support, we’re delighted to offer a day like this on such an important calendar date for us. This event will also form part of our yearlong celebrations of our 10th birthday as a charity.
Owners will discover their dog's blood type at this unique event - a valuable piece of information should they ever be faced with an emergency situation where their dog needs blood.
Not only this, their dogs will also be invited to give blood at a later date to help save the lives of other much loved canine companions.
To attend the blood typing event at Swindon, dogs need to be fit and healthy and one of the following breeds:
Dobermanns, Greyhounds, Boxers, German Shepherds, Flat-Coated Retrievers, Airedale Terriers, Weimaraners, Lurchers, American Bulldogs, Pointer (English), English Bull Terriers, Old English Sheepdogs, Border Collies and Dogue de Bordeaux.
