We are dedicated to the provision of the highest quality blood products, which have been donated by our community of canine donors across the UK.

Quality assurance starts with the selection of our canine blood donors. As set out with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), all dogs must meet certain criteria to donate:

  • Fit and healthy
  • Between one and eight years old
  • Weigh more than 25kg
  • Have a good temperament
  • Have never travelled abroad
  • Vaccinated
  • Not on any medication

Further quality assurance measures include:

  • All donors are microchipped or tattooed for traceability
  • All donors are blood typed
  • Full haematology and biochemistry screening undertaken annually
  • 1 in 100 donors are selected for infectious disease
  • 1 in 100 products undergoes microbiology screening
