The Blood Bank: Providing Pet Blood Transfusions in Shreveport, LA
Blood transfusions save lives. At UVH, we offer a pet blood transfusion service that’s supported by the on-site Northwest Louisiana Animal Blood Bank. This is the only community-based dog and cat blood bank in the Arklatex region.
What It Does
Our blood bank service at UVH provides:
- Remote case consultation
- Dog and cat blood products
- Referrals for diagnostics and primary case management
Appropriate, timely transfusion medicine is a necessity for dogs and cats to help them recover from life-threatening infections, autoimmune disease, cancer, toxicities, and major traumas.
Contact UVH with any questions you may have relating to case consultation, blood product supply, or case referral.
What to Do If Your Pet Meets Our Requirements
Step 1: Have your pet’s blood typed
Step 2: Ask for you pet to be added to the list of potential donors. When a donation spot opens, you will be contacted to review all donor program details, and further in-depth screening will be performed to clear your pet for approval as a blood donor.
Step 3: If your pet becomes a Pet Hero…thank you!
