Cornell Companion Animal Hospital maintains a small blood bank, which is routinely stocked with purchased products from National Veterinary Blood Banks, as well as from our own voluntary canine and feline donors. All of our donors are compromised of staffs’, students’ and community members’ pets that live at home with their families. The donors are thoroughly typed, tested, and screened on a yearly basis to provide pathogen-free blood products for routine or emergency transfusions. We offer the following products for our hospital patients: canine and feline red blood cell and plasma products, including canine cryoprecipitate and platelet concentrate.
We also offer some red blood cell and plasma products for sale to local referring veterinarians when available. Please contact us for more information if you are interested in purchasing products from our blood bank.
