Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Dog you have to do you know it you certainly be a younger dog Marty has its own issues so not a good idea for an older dog but young dogs can donate that blood and you were right they do it to the jugular veins in his neck in minutes no pain yeah and and they get just like people because I used to donate blood they get a trim yeah I get it towed away they got a yeah yeah and the and if you mean if they yeah and I think it's a wonderful thing and certainly as a pet owner and I've been a pet owner a dog owner for many years I never gave it a second thought just never get sick enough to leave it with cats you know you know it's amazing of course that the same would apply to cats but you just don't think of it and yet I mean I have been fortunate none of my dogs have required major surgery but I guess any dog that requires a major surgery would need a supply of blood and I had eight to twelve different blood types for dogs that's fascinating I didn't know that they don't like are universal which most dogs if even if it if they're not a no they could take it but only once and then they have the negatives into positives the negative if you have a negative blood type you can only use the negative but I think what I read is if you have the positive you could have either raw but you know then they they type you anyway a man and if its plasma you know it might not be a problem but you know I say they use it mostly for surgeries and you're right because that's no guarantee but you know with some some animals do nida do need blood you know special okay fads you know they fit by a car and they've lost a lot so I think it's terrific I'm gonna I think it is too I'm gonna put it on the Facebook page unleashed and you know why some information they have but an absolutely and of course most most of the time this is totally voluntary it's not like you're getting a a monetary compensation needs some some vets will give we'll we'll give a monetary compensation a discount on future. wouldn't that be wonderful maybe that's how much the young and healthy beat the relays you're talking about to get right well you know it's like to go to a red cross facility I need a facility where they could do this of course most vets would be able to do it now they would need to store it that's the sea that one that's the I think that's the issue that many vets individually might not have the capacity to store it and that's why it's not very well known locally individually as a pet owner that facility in Purcellville Virginia is a large facility any service I think they said something like three states West Virginia Virginia and Maryland and it is an all volunteer you bring your dog in to donate that blood and then they distribute that blood through different veterinary hospitals or veterinarians in the tri state area so that's a it's like a red cross for dogs actually actually storing the blood their mind that is the local gentleman he's been around for many years he has a small office so he would have the capacity to store it but it's wonderful I think if you put on that on least page because people can check into that make it a little less of it I'm sure they have it yes no yeah they're all his son I could put the list down as well yeah there are some facilities like your facility but there are some that you can go to but yes get out and we know about animals and I found this out not too long ago but who even thought of that I know I think it's a great idea and I'm glad you brought it up as a topic for you show and denigrate people where else if you do that an awful lot of book. I mean you know they're a mammal and they want to save them please that's an and they have the mail those talks all of that long I think we should look into that little while well you know these shoes they have to be on hand hello Sir did you have the facilities are hospital facilities I'm sure have you know a transfusion that are common place at those facilities and I'm sure they have stated the art equipment and probably have a supply of blood on veterinarian science for big animals and for Jews is is a godsend for sure yeah they are very very special well I think that is where if any out body out there is listening wants to know what to be all my contacts yeah I'd be it you don't need to be a cat and dog fat yeah bunch of our ladies come in and and actually made a diss we need like well it's exciting in this you know we now with the social media and Facebook I mean that in draft kept me up for hours in the middle of the night waiting for her to give birth all of the baby to ramps not that one okay I can actually see it now the cameras you know the exact tomorrow I'm actually going to a wildlife center here in Virginia they have an open house twice a year that they allow the public to come in and they give you a tour of the wildlife center they bring in injured wildlife so the last time I took my grandsons a couple of years ago and we saw a beautiful eagles that were being rehabilitated and they are at least some back so the Waynesboro wildlife center does this twice a year that they allow the public in and and that is wonderful but I also and I'm sure you've done this to watch the web cams that they put in in the. nests then you can watch here the illegals song now Ian Wilson the falcons or or any wild animal they use the webcam the technology today allows you to be right there and up close nature up close that is just phenomenal so for animal lovers this is great technology that we have now not when we were growing up it was so so difficult you you had to go to a zoo to see any animal now you can watch these animals up close and personal with so many different venues it's wonderful no wonder all right we'll be right back after a sponsor okay. six days we'll be.

Coming up next
