Wanted: Dog Blood Donors
Canine Blood Heroes is coming to Advanced Veterinary Care (AVC) in Salt Lake City. Canine Blood Heroes is a canine blood service that finds eligible dogs to act as blood donors. We are excited that Salt Lake City veterinarians will have a reliable source of canine blood for transfusions. There are so many reasons a dog may need blood: rat bait ingestion, surgery, cancer, trauma, the list goes on.
