A PSA For Dog Owners

I don't know if this is a thing outside of the UK, but you should check to see if it is. After the tragedy of losing Garfield I decided it would be a good idea to take my other cat, Kadie, to the vet. While I was there I learned about something pretty important I want to share with you all now.

Did you know that it's possible for a dog to become a blood donor?
I don't know why I never thought about it before. I don't think I considered that dogs could get blood transfusions is all. But they can, and that blood has to come from somewhere. So if you're a dog owner and you live in the UK please consider letting your furry friend donate blood. If something happened to your dog you'd want the blood to be there and available, and everyone feels the same. Or they should.

Again I'm not sure if this is a scheme outside of the UK but if it is then go for it. It's a neat and nice thing to do. Of course don't forget to give the dog a treat when the blood is taken. If people can get a cookie for donating blood then a dog can get a treat.
