Our skilled and experienced veterinary staff has performed numerous blood transfusions here in our animal hospital and will provide the highest standard of care to your pet when it matters most. Meanwhile, we go out of our way to keep pet owners informed and educated throughout the entire process because we understand just how stressful having a pet undergo a blood transfusion can be.
Benefits and Reasons for a Pet Blood Transfusion
There are many possible reasons as to why your furry friend could someday need a pet blood transfusion. Typically, the need for a blood transfusion arises in emergency situations and giving our veterinary team the green light to begin a transfusion could very well be the difference between life or death for a pet. Some of the more common reasons that we may recommend a blood transfusion would include:
- traumatic blood loss
- major surgeries
- chemotherapy for pets with cancer
Furthermore, pets with advanced stages of liver disease or kidney disease may also need blood transfusions, as may cats that have been diagnosed with feline leukemia. Furthermore, pets that have bleeding/clotting disorders may also require blood transfusions, as they can lose a great deal of blood from even a small injury.
Why Trust Our Veterinary Team With Your Pet's Blood Transfusion?
A pet blood transfusion is not a routine procedure, which is why it's so important to have a veterinary team you can trust. At Town & Country Animal Hospital, you can rest assured that your pet is in skilled, compassionate, and capable hands. Our veterinary staff is highly trained and experienced in transfusion medicine. They have worked extensively in all aspects of transfusion, ranging from harvesting blood from donor animals and matching/crossmatching blood types as needed. When your pet has a blood transfusion in our office, you have the peace of mind in knowing that your pet is being carefully monitored throughout the transfusion and afterward. Our team knows how to identify early signs of potential complications and reactions, as well as how to handle them if they do arise.
And of course, all of our donor blood is screened thoroughly to ensure that it is safe for your pet. Ultimately, our goal is to be sure that your pet is as comfortable as possible while receiving the best in veterinary care. Meanwhile, we will keep you well informed throughout the entire blood transfusion procedure and recovery.
