Giving blood is something we humans are asked to do every year - in fact about 17,000 of us do it every week of the year! But what about our animals?
Many need blood transfusions or other blood by-products. So where does this blood come from?
Vet Nurse Rebecca (Bec) Charteris recognised the problem and has spent the past few years setting up the Australian Animal Blood Bank - one of only two commercial blood banks in the country.
She needs more donors and explains in this podcast how easy it is (it's also free!!) and the benefits for both donors and recipients.
