  CANINE LIFESAVERS - BLOOD THE CANINE WAY!
BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS CAN SAVE LIVES, AND WITH AUTO-IMMUNE HAEMOLYTIC
ANAEMIA ON THE INCREASE, VETS ARE HAVING TO CONSIDER THIS FORM OF
TREATMENT MORE THAN EVER BEFORE. THERE SEEMS TO BE HOWEVER, A
SHORTAGE OF DONOR DOGS AVAILABLE TO THE VETS.

IT IS NOT ONLY AUTO-IMMUNE HAEMOLYTIC ANAEMIA THAT CAN CAUSE A DOG
TO NEED A BLOOD TRANSFUSION, OTHER PROBLEMS CAN INCLUDE, VON
WILLEBRAND’S DISEASE AND HAEMOPHILIA.

DOGS HAVE BASICALLY TWO BLOOD TYPES,   POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE.

DOGS WITH POSITIVE BLOOD ARE CANINE UNIVERSAL RECEIVERS, AND CAN
RECEIVE BLOOD FROM BOTH POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE DOGS.

DOGS WITH NEGATIVE BLOOD ARE CANINE UNIVERSAL DONORS AND CAN ONLY
RECEIVE BLOOD FROM NEGATIVE DOGS.

FOR THIS REASON TINA KYRIACOU HAS SET UP A CANINE BLOOD DONOR
REGISTER THAT IS AVAILABLE BY CONTACTING HER ON, PHONE/FAX: 01869 338928

NEW DONOR DOGS, OF ALL BREEDS AND GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS, ARE URGENTLY
NEEDED. IF YOU ARE WILLING TO HAVE YOUR DOG’S BLOOD TYPED AND
POSSIBLY SAVE ANOTHER DOG’S LIFE, PLEASE PUT YOUR DOG FORWARD FOR
THIS REGISTER.

WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU? YOUR DOG MAY BE IN DESPERATE NEED OF BLOOD ONE
DAY AND KNOWING YOUR DOG’S TYPE COULD SAVE VALUABLE TIME, AND
POSSIBLY HIS LIFE.

NEXT TIME YOU VISIT YOUR VET, WHY DON’T YOU ASK ABOUT HAVING YOUR
DOG’S BLOOD TYPED? PLEASE FILL IN THE FORM BELOW AND SEND IT TO:

                          TINA KYRIACOU
      SWERE PADDOCKS, HEMPTON ROAD, DEDDINGTON, OXON OX15 0QJ
