Blood Bank are coming!

Tuesday 07 Feb 2017

by Wispa'sMum

Updated: Wednesday 18 Jan

The Pet Blood Bank are visiting Daybreaks Kennels again as they are desperate for donations of blood from our canine friends. If you are able to bring your greyhound along, please give Zoe Hayward a call at the Blood Bank on 01509 232222 to book your appointment at Daybreaks.

Your grey must be over 25kg in weight and less than 8 years in age. It takes approximately 20 minutes for them to give blood and they have a full vet test and blood screen prior to donating. Those who have been brave go away with a goodie bag!

If you are able to come along and help another furry friend, please get in touch.

I have been informed that the blood donated from the greys at Daybreaks last week has already gone out and is being used to save other dogs lives.

They are desperate for donors and are coming along to the kennels on Tuesday next week. If you can help, please give Zoe a call on the number above. Many thanks

Thank you to everyone who brought their dogs along to give blood today. It was lovely to see so many very happy hounds and of course cuddle as many as possible! Xxx

Hope Lola and Lena are feeling better soon hugs to both of the girls from Boogie & Fletcher x x

Gutted i had to cancel Lena's appointment for today. She is on 3 legs and we rested her hoping it would be a tweak that would pass but it was not to be and we ended up at vets yesterday with limpin' Lena and Lola who has broken a tip off a canine tooth. Lena is on anti inflammatories so that is that. Next time hopefully ...and we may be able to bring them both xxx

I am gutted that I only just noticed this on the events as its such a necessary cause but I can't get time off work this short notice but I have rang the number and they're going to give mr plenty of notice of the next time they come out to daybreaks so Ben can donate,and also ring me about other places they are going to for donations on weekends which is so kind of them,I do hope we can help

by LindaPaul

Friday 10 Feb 16:01

Spurred on by the news of poor Boogie I have booked Lena in. It will be her first time - yipes! Would have booked Lola in too but Tues 21st is her Pets As Therapy visit day and the residents at the home love seeing her so will have to try another time with her. xxx

The Blood Bank are desperate for more donors! If you are available to come along, please give Sam a call on the number above.
Many thanks.

I got Blossom booked in, whew, not many spots left. See you all on Tues. luv t

by Emma

Feel terrible, had to cancel our appointment because Kev can't donate as he's recovering from having his leg sewn back on (ok maybe that's an exaggeration), Moo can't donate because she's on anti-biotics for a urine infection, and anybody who knows Sadie will know why she can't (won't!) donate - such a drama queen! If you are able to attend, please do as the greys usually don't even notice it's happening (they get to have nice lie down with some lovely veterinary nurses stroking them, followed by some tasty treats) and it's so rewarding to know that they are potentially saving the lives of 4 other dogs.

by Wispa'sMum

Wednesday 09 Nov 08:10

The Blood Bank have contacted me to say there are still a few spaces available.... please give Sam a call at the Blood Bank on the above number if you are able to come along.

Hi Kate, Moo is feeling much better today thanks, I think she is secretly rather enjoying the extra TLC she is getting! Em x

by LadyVictoria

Tuesday 31 May 13:14

I do hope Moomin is feeling better today. xx

by Emma

Monday 30 May 12:06

Poor Moomin is a poorly girl and so I've just had to cancel her appointment to give blood tomorrow. If anybody wants her slot, it's at 3pm, so give the Pet Blood Bank a call (they are in today) on 01509 232222 and they can allocate you Moo's place. Failing that, Sadie said she'll try again to give blood but she won't be at all happy about it and will loudly make everyone aware of that fact!

I've booked Lyonell, Carraig and Dill in for the next session in June. It's their first time so should be fun ;-) Liz

by kallie

Friday 13 May 08:47

Rocky and shauna a gave a couple of weeks ago so can't donate this time. Please if your grey hasn't given before or if it's been a little while since their donation, book them in, it really does make a difference, zoes dog bobby needed blood last week and it saved his life.

Sunday 03 Oct 19:13

Hi themartins... sorry about this. I have spoken to the blood bank and they would prefer to do all pet dogs on one session and Daybreaks greys in another as before..... hope you might be able to come in December - the treatment room hopefully will be finished by then! If you want to call me with your details - if you are available on 'standby' in case we are short of trust dogs able to give, please do.

by themartins

Sunday 03 Oct 19:08

WE phoned the pet blood bank on Friday to book Olive and Ruby in and were told that the session was only for the kennel dogs and we couldn't book rehomed dogs in until 14 December? Is this right - when they last donated in July there were 2 sessions one for kennel dogs and one for rehomed ones?
