Gypsy was a hero today, she was the donor dog for a blood transfusion!
I work as a vet nurse and we desperately needed a transfusion for a small dog that was rapidly deteriorating from Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia. As I am the only one at work with big dogs (and therefore more blood) I had to get Gypsy to come in and save the day.
She was so brave, they knocked her out and took the blood and she is now curled up on the couch with my dad. She has a shaved neck from the transfusion (taken from her jugular) and is still a bit lethargic.
We will know over night if the transfusion saved the little dog and I shall let you know how it goes!
