PUT YOUR PETS’
Our world-class blood bank has stocks of universal donors for both cats and dogs, allowing rapid high-quality transfusion. All blood is sourced from certified healthy and disease-free donors. They’re kept in-stock so there is no delay for transfusion. Rapid blood-typing is available to maximise safety.
Blood products can be transfused in our hospital, or if your pet is at another hospital, we can provide blood for use if needed.
WHAT TO EXPECT
LABOROTORY TEST/ BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS
For laboratory tests, a blood sample may be taken from the pet’s neck, arm or leg. In-house test results are usually ready within an hour. Do note that in the case of blood transfusions, we’ll first perform a round of tests on your pet to reduce the chance of any adverse reactions. Once that’s done, blood will be administered over a period of a few hours.
HEAR IT FROM OUR PAWRENTS
"So I recently took my cat to Creature Comforts for a blood test, and was so impressed with their level of care and attention to detail. The staff were friendly and professional, and they made sure my cat was comfortable throughout the whole process. I received the results quickly, and they even took the time to explain everything to me in a way that was super easy to understand.”
Patient : James T.
"You know i can’t thank the team at Creature Comforts enough for their help with my dog's blood test. They were able to identify an underlying health issue that had gone undetected by my previous vet, and thanks to their quick action, we were able to start treatment right away. The staff were knowledgeable and compassionate, and they took the time to answer all my questions and address my concerns.”
