Doggie Blood Bank!

 

Updated : May 21, 2009

A mobile blood bank for dogs has been launched in Britian.

The specially-designed trailer comes complete with weighing scales, waiting room and hydraulic table, reports Sky News.

Dogs visiting the unit can expect dinner afterwards, as well as a goodie bag containing toys to thank them for donating.

The process of giving blood takes five to seven minutes, but owners are advised to allow half-an-hour per visit so their pet can have a check-up.

The blood donations are then stored according to type, and can be held for up to five weeks.

The idea is the brainchild of Pet Blood Bank UK. Over the coming months, it will be visiting veterinary schools across the country.

Executive director Wendy Barnett said: "We have always had a shortage of donors, so it is exactly the same as it is for humans. As soon as the blood comes in, it is straight out again.

"If you went into hospital, you would expect the blood to be there. We are aiming to ensure it's the same for our pets."

The charity was launched in March 2007, and was the first service to collect, process, store and supply pet blood.

VeryHappyPig says Pigs are often giving blood but its only used for Black pudding!
