Furry life­savers

Pets (Singapore) - - Paw Prints -

“A blood trans­fu­sion is not a cure. How­ever, it can buy time for the pa­tient’s con­di­tion to sta­bilise and im­prove the an­i­mal’s chances of sur­vival,” says Dr An­thony Goh, se­nior vet­eri­nar­ian at Mount Pleas­ant Vet Cen­tre (Ge­leng­gang). Un­der the Mount Pleas­ant Blood Donor Pro­gramme, dogs and cats can do­nate blood.

Furry he­roes like Mocha and Mittens have do­nated blood un­der the pro­gramme. These he­roes had a rough start in life—Mittens was found in a drain and Mocha was given up by his fam­ily. Now, with the sup­port of their paw-rents, they are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the lives of fel­low furry ones. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit mount­pleas­antvet­group.word­press.com.
