'Today Len gave blood for the first time, Len belongs to one of our wonderful nurses Kat and she very kindly allowed Len to donate his blood to help another poorly cat.
Many of you may not realise that cats can give blood or indeed we ever need to use it.
Well its just like a blood transfusion in human medicine and sometimes cats require them too.
Unfortunately the pet blood bank as a charity does not offer the option to store feline blood and so we are solely reliant on owners to volunteer their pets in a time of need. At present we don't have a very big list of willing donors here at Vale Vets and Referrals but we are hoping to grow this list by making you aware of this situation.
If you would like to add your cat to our donor list please contact the clinic with your details and we will add you to our list, below are the requirements your cat will need to meet:
Option of complimentary bag of food (3.5kg) or vaccination following each donation
