Community Involvement/Special Notes:  The pet population of Portland is rapidly growing; shortages of canine blood products exceed even those faced in human medicine.  NWVS Critical Care Blood Bank was established to provide the highest quality canine and feline blood products in order to meet the needs of the critically ill and injured animals of the Portland area.  Working in partnership with VCA NWVS staff and the Northwest primary care veterinary community, the Critical Care Blood Bank is a vital component in providing the most comprehensive and up-to-date veterinary medical care available in the region.  To see if your dog can be a blood donor, please contact us.
