Blood Bank (OABB)

The Onderstepoort Animal Blood Bank (OABB) uses in-house and client-owned donor dogs that meet stringent health criteria to provide blood products. All canine donors are initially blood typed and then regularly screened (clinical examination and blood tests). 

Donated blood is used primarily in the treatment of canine patients in the hospital, but subject to availability, may be supplied to private veterinarians.

If you wish to make your dog available to the blood donation programme, please contact us to find out the age, size and health requirements of our canine donors.
