How your dog can help other dogs

The Eastern Veterinary Blood Bank is experiencing a blood shortage and has scheduled a series of blood drives to replenish its supply.

To be a blood donor, a dog must weigh at least 35 pounds, be in good health and be between the ages of 9 months and 7.5 years. Dogs weighing 55 pounds or less give a half pint of blood, while dogs that weigh more than 55 pounds give a full pint. Technicians draw blood from the jugular vein, and do not muzzle or sedate donor dogs.

EVBB is one of a few of private blood banks for dogs in the country.

If you and your dog are interested in donating, call the blood bank staff at 1-800-949-3822, or drop by one of the drives. Here’s the schedule:

April 2nd Centreville, Maryland Centreville Veterinary Hospital

I have a friend who did this with her Borzoi, Red, who has since died (of unrelated natural causes). Red donated several times, and she said it never bothered him a bit. He did it on an occasional, as-needed basis, and I believe it was for the veterinary clinic where he received his own care.
