Idaho Veterinarian Starts Blood Drive for Dogs

AP – A Boise veterinarian seeking a more reliable blood supply for dogs needing transfusions has started a donor program. Veterinarian Chad Hunt started the Canine Blood Heroes program at his Boise animal Hospital in January.  Under the program, owners can bring in their dogs to donate
nearly a pint of blood as often as once every eight weeks. Donors are compensated with $50 worth of veterinary care. Hunt says donor dogs must weigh at least 50 pounds and undergo a physical exam to make sure they are healthy enough to donate. So far, Hunt has eight dogs that donate blood on a regular basis. And he says they have already helped save the lives of other dogs. Hunt says an Idaho Falls veterinarian founded the program.
