Pet Blood Banks

As veterinary medicine has become more advanced, and more treatment options for diseases or trauma become available, the need for blood transfusions has increased. To meet this demand, blood banks for pets have become more common. In this podcast, Dr. Leah Cohn, professor of small animal internal medicine at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, discusses pet blood banks, the process of pets giving blood, and the Pets Saving Pets program, which serves as a blood bank for the college’s teaching hospital.
