Ep 24: Blood transfusions in dogs and cats - yep, that's a thing!
Show Notes

Has your dog or cat ever needed a transfusion?  Did you even know that was possible?!  Well, it is! 

Dr. Richard Stone, a board-certified internist and VP of Medicine for BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Animal Hospitals, enters the Chat Room to talk all about blood transfusions in pets.  Dr. Jen the vet, Dr. Jason and Dr. Stone talk about why a pet might need a transfusion, some of the risks, and where all that blood comes from.  Here's a link to Dr. Jen the vet's recent article on veterinary blood banks in Pet Vet Magazine:  https://www.petvetmagazine.com/take-it-to-the-bank-the-advancement-of-veterinary-blood-transfusions/
