Following the release of some disturbing press coverage regarding a blood bank in Spain at the weekend (Saturday 2 July), Pet Blood Bank UK would like to reassure the vet practices who use their products. The charity has issued the following statement: 

Katrina Wilkinson, Managing Director at Pet Blood Bank UK, said: ‘We were horrified and saddened to read the media coverage coming from Spain on the devastating situation for dog and cat donors there.’

‘At Pet Blood Bank UK, we pride ourselves on ensuring the welfare of our donors is at the forefront of what we do. All our wonderful donors live in the UK, and we work closely with their owners to ensure they enjoy the experience of coming to give blood to help save the lives of other pets.’

‘Looking after our donors and maintaining a high standard of animal welfare is at the heart of and intrinsic to what we do.’ 

‘We would like to reassure our veterinary customers that all Pet Blood Bank UK blood products are produced by us and from UK donors.’
