Doggie Donor Day success
We had a fantastic turn out for our first doggie blood donor session on Valentineâ€™s Day. We are so grateful to everyone involved, especially the doggie lifesavers! The Pet Blood Bank team were very impressed with how well behaved the donors all were.
This amazing bunch of beauties collected 15 units of blood between them which can help up to 60 sick dogs. And with such an amazing effort, we are planning another donor session in June.

Pet Blood Bank UK (PBBuk) was set up as the first UK charity to collect, process, store and distribute pet blood products in the UK. A change in legislation in October 2005 made it possible for vets to store pet blood. Recognising this as an opportunity to develop a blood bank, Vets Now raised the funds to set up and support the PBBuk charity, which supplies dogs all over the UK with vital, lifesaving blood. PBBuk was launched in 2007 and has provided over 10,000 units of blood products to help save thousands of dogs lives.
PBBuk collects canine blood which is then processed into various blood products and stored on the premises. The blood products are then sold to veterinary practices across the UK. Any profits will be re-employed into educational programmes such as developing veterinary transfusion medicine within the UK.
We at Milton Keynes Veterinary Group are so proud to support the work of the Pet Blood Bank UK, but of course, we couldnâ€™t have done it without our doggie donors! Thank you so much and see you again soon!
