Pet Blood Bank

At Alfreton Park Veterinary Hospital, we support the work of Pet Blood Bank UK by regularly holding blood donor sessions throughout the year.

Pet Blood Bank UK was launched in 2007 and is the only charity that provides a canine blood bank service for all veterinary practitioners across the UK.

Similar to the human blood service, dog owners kindly bring along their much loved canine companions to give blood at these sessions, which are held all over the country.

Please contact the surgery to find out when our next session is, we would love to see you and your pet, it's such a worthwhile thing to do!

They are especially keen to hear from owners with the following breeds: Dobermanns, Greyhounds, Boxers, German Shepherds, Flat-Coated Retrievers, Airedale Terriers, Weimaraners, Lurchers, American Bulldogs, Pointer (English) and English Bull Terriers

- as these are likely to be negative blood group donors, which are always in short supply.

Vet Carole Hopkinson brings her dog Mo along to blood doning sessions, although she has now retired at the age of 9, having given blood 8 times and potentially saved up to 32 lives! Mo was very pleased to get her retirement gift of a jar of doggy treats!
