We are hosting our first ever canine blood donor clinic for the Canadian Animal Blood Bank! For your dog to be a donor you must meet several criteria. We can accept 12 to 20 donors at any given event and hope to have these several times a year. Donation can take 2-6 minutes on average and your entire appointment usually is 15 minutes.

Details: Microchips will be inserted by Oxford County Veterinary Clinic staff. Microchips will be first come first serve. All proceeds will be donated back to Oxford County Animal Rescue. We ask that all dogs that are dog aggressive have an owner register prior to bringing the animals into the clinic so that they can be placed into rooms safely. Similarly, cats who are stressed easily will be accommodated to the best of our ability and thus we ask that you advise our staff should your animal require special handling.
