ODESSA-The West Texas Emergency Vet Clinic says it is preparing for tick season and potential shortages in blood for procedures by launching their own blood bank.
In the past, the clinic and others would get the blood it needs from commercial suppliers or from their own dogs.
Now they are looking for pooches to donate blood for their new bank. Dogs must be male or either a female that was spayed very early on and never had puppies. They need to be at least 35 pounds and between 18 months and 8 years old.
For more info, you can call the clinic at 432-614-9204.
