Blood Bank

An in-house blood bank facility allows us to give needed blood component therapy to our patients. Transfusions may require packed red blood cells, plasma, whole blood or other components. In-house blood typing and cross-match capabilities allow us to decrease the risk of transfusion reactions. The blood bank also allows us to share these products with the local veterinary hospitals when needed.


VCSG is looking for blood donors! If you are interested in helping our community and saving lives, please consider enrolling your dog or cat in our volunteer blood donor program. Benefits include a free physical exam and yearly blood panel as long as your pet is actively donating. Families also receive a gift after each donation.
