Transfusions save lives.
The transfusion medicine service at UVH is supported by the on-site Northwest Louisiana Animal Blood Bank. The only community based dog and cat blood bank in the Arklatex region. The transfusion medicine service at UVH provides remote case consultation, supplies screened-prepared dog and cat blood products and accepts referrals for diagnostics and primary case management. Appropriate, timely transfusion medicine is a necessity for many dogs and cats to help them recover from, life threatening infections, autoimmune disease, cancers, toxicities and major traumas. Please contact a UVH nurse with any questions relating to case consultation, blood product supply or case referral. The transfusion medicine service is here to help in whatever way it can.
