In today's world where there has been an explosion of awareness concerning various human issues. Most of us are still unaware of how to treat our furry friends. One important aspect of treating our pets is Blood Transfusion With the technological advancements that we live in our pets habitat too is changing. So it becomes even pivotal as a pet owner to know about when is a blood transfusion needed. Where can it be done, and how is it beneficial to your pets. As per the recent surveys, the frequency of transfusion as reported in one of the biggest and reputed hospitals of Mumbai, was about once in a week or two.. To curb the low ratio of blood donors, the participating donors have to be tested and approved for DEA +ve (universal recipients) or DEA -ve (universal donors).
Side effects to the donor. The blood withdrawn from a donor is basis its weight and acceptable donation levels. Such blood donation is known to prove beneficial for the donor dog as it helps the donor to produce fresh blood for a rejuvenated circulation. No side effects are known in cases of donating blood within acceptable levels. Kindly get more information from your vet prior to the actual donation. The transfusion can last for one hour to four hours depending on the severity of blood loss. In normal cases of anemia, a blood transfusion can go on for four hours whereas it can be done in an hour in life threatening cases of anemia. Post transfusion, the recipient is monitored for several hours ensuring its stability. While the blood donor gets a cookie for return as a token of appreciation Show some love to your neighbouring pets and register your dogs for donating blood. Find out other relevant information from a vet near you.Petkonnect encourages you to get the blood group of your furry friend identified at the time of its next blood test. This would avoid delays for cross matching at the time of any unfortunate event requiring blood transfusion.
Mishaps with Pets or stray animals cannot be avoided But can surely be aided to by extending our empathy and lending a helping hand to the injured four legged.
Run by NGOs across the city, ambulances are just a call away. Equipped to heal minor injuries, these ambulances run to save lives and ask for no money in return. But by donating some money to keep these ambulances running, we can together ensure a safe commute and better infrastructure for the strays to save their lives.
Kindly note that, At Petkonnect, we don't offer any of these ambulance services, but help you get in touch with the closest NGO to assist you in the rescue. Kindly allow atleast a couple of hours for the ambulance to reach the spot, depending on the traffic conditions in the city. Occasionally, our NGO associates might request you to drop the injured animal at their suggested centres. We request and encourage you to do the same, and save a life in need.
One of the easiest ways of commuting with an animal, is by calling an ambulance. While NGO run ambulances offer free aid to save the pet/ stray but these take time to arrive; the private ambulances take less time to arrive and are paid services. These too, are built to carry both small as well as large pets. Whether you want to mitigate the sufferings of a wounded animal, and rush it to the nearest hospital / veterinary clinic, commute with your pet within the city, or take your pet across cities, our private ambulances are happy to help!
Please Note: At Petkonnect, we don't offer any of these services but help you get in touch with a verified service provider for your pet, that is the closest to you.
