The UVH animal blood bank is the first of its kind in Northwest Louisiana. We created it because just like people, animals sometimes need blood products to aid in the treatment of certain conditions.
Our secondary objective was to establish a regionally beneficial interactive rapport with the veterinary community by providing certified continuing education, lectures and consultation services to benefit local veterinarians.
Within the UVH offices, our staff veterinarians share client cases on a daily basis, which inspires further discussion amongst the entire veterinary team regarding best current practices for the hospital. Which is how we continue to educate ourselves and our clients into the best way to care for pets.
