Blood and plasma transfusions may be a life-saving solution during your pet’s medical emergency or illness. At Shores Animal Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, our veterinary staff are professionally trained to perform blood and plasma transfusions. As your mutual partner in keeping your pet healthy, we guarantee your pet will receive the best care possible throughout a blood and plasma transfusion procedure.
Pets may need blood and plasma transfusion for any number of reasons. Immediate trauma might come to mind as the most obvious reason, but there are many reasons why pets may require a transfusion which can include:
Complications from autoimmune diseases which destroy red blood cells
Complications from pets swallowing coins or metallic objects
Complications from infectious diseases
Minor or major surgery
Organ failure, in particular liver and kidney failures
Various forms of cancer
Blood disorders like chronic anemia
Low red blood cell counts
We want to be able to diagnose any health issues and develop a treatment plan as quickly and efficiently as possible. For this reason, our hospital is equipped with in-house hematology machines, blood chemistry machines and electrolytes, which return results quickly for a prompt response. We also understand that your pet may have special blood conditions like anemia, infections or severe wounds. For this reason, we develop blood and plasma treatments which are specific to every pet’s individual needs.
