We need more feline life savers!
May 8th, 2017

We are looking to increase the number of feline donors on our feline blood donor register and hence looking for more feline life savers!

Your cat’s weight, age and health status will be carefully assessed and donor cats should ideally weigh more than 4 kg (but should not be overweight), aged between 1 and 8 years (ideally, 1 to 5 years old), have a calm temperament and not get unduly stressed when visiting the veterinary clinic/hospital, free of any significant illness and be fully vaccinated, as well as ideally being an indoor cat. Please note that donor cats should also not already have donated blood in the previous four weeks.

As you may be aware, there are potential risks involved and hence these risks need to be carefully evaluated first. This is especially important in cats where the risks of donating blood is higher than in people or dogs. Hence, pre-registration checks are required before your feline companion can be entered onto our register.
