About the Animal Blood Bank at Newton Veterinary Hospital
Newton Veterinary Hospital Is Proud to Offer the Region’s Only Animal Blood Bank
In September 2003, The Newton Veterinary Hospital, in conjunction with the Sussex County Chapter of the American Red Cross & New Jersey Blood Services, held the first human and pet blood drive in Sussex County! At this unique blood drive, human donors brought in their cats or dogs to be blood-typed and placed on our emergency donation list.
Newton Veterinary Hospital Blood Bank Saves Lives
Thanks to our blood bank, we have the ability to provide life-saving blood to pets during life and death emergencies such as severe trauma or illness.
Pets, just like humans, may require blood transfusions for genetic, surgical, chronic or emergency illnesses. With on-site stored blood products, resident feline donors, and an emergency donor list, Newton Veterinary’s Animal Blood Bank provides life-saving blood transfusions 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 365-days a year.
About Resident Cat Blood Donors
Our resident donors are rescued felines for whom time already is running out and who would otherwise have been euthanized. They are donors for a specified amount of time, after which we help them find permanent, loving homes. They have passed a screening process which includes physical examination, temperament analysis, blood testing, and vaccinations.
