Avian and Exotic Heros: our Blood Donors


Just like in humans, our exotic patients sometimes require a blood transfusion.  Unlike humans, dogs and cats, blood banks do not store blood for pets such as birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and rodents. For these special patients, we keep a list of exotic “heros” whose owners are willing to bring them to the clinic on a moment’s notice to donate life saving blood. Donating blood is minimally risky to the donor, and often the difference between life and death for the recipient.The Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic would like to thank our exotic heros!
