Our Blood Donors

Did you know pets need blood too? Our hospital treats numerous patients throughout the year that require blood or plasma transfusions vital to their recovery process. Our hospital maintains a blood donor program that is comprised of volunteer pets. Thanks to the Blood Donors at Alta these pets have a fighting chance to overcome serious trauma or illnesses.
