Donor Perks

Every 5th donation, your pet hero will receive:

  • A $100 Visa gift card – You can use this for personal needs or toward your pet’s wellness care.  Don’t forget your vaccine costs and preventatives!  The card expires one year after activation.
  • A $50 credit on your IndyVet account that can be used for
    • Specialty or Emergency services at IndyVet for any pet in your household.
    • A ProHeart (6 month heartworm prevention) injection for your donor – 40% off!
    • The annual bloodwork requirement in order to remain in good standing with your signed donor agreement.
  • If you do not have the $50 credit on your account at the time of your pet’s annual bloodwork requirement, you can now pay $50 to have it run through IndyVet during your pet’s visit for donation, which is a deeply discounted price given to the blood bank for this blood panel.

Could Your Dog Be The Next Hero?

The IndyVet Canine Blood Donation Center provides canine blood for use at veterinary practices throughout Indiana and across the United States.  Dog blood (K9) is used by IndyVet and other veterinary hospitals for transfusions during emergency treatments, major surgeries and anemia involving canine patients.

IndyVet’s canine blood donation center collects, separates, and stores blood. Each unit of whole blood is broken down into packed red blood cells and plasma. Nothing is wasted and each unit can save 2-4 dogs. Canine packed red blood cells have a shelf life of 42 days, while canine plasma can be stored for five years.

Having fresh prepared canine blood product allows IndyVet to treat many life threatening emergencies immediately. Having fresh blood products allows IndyVet to provide superior services internally as well as providing blood products to hundreds of veterinary practices across the United States.
