Blood Bank


Many medical emergencies require the patient to receive a blood transfusion to have a good chance of survival. However, there is always a greater demand for blood products than there is supply.

In order to ensure all our emergency patients can receive blood products if required, the Animal Emergency Centre, in conjunction with East Island Animal Hospital, operates a dog blood bank.

If your pet is in need of blood, you may call our clinic to enquire about purchasing blood.  We endeavour to always have blood products on hand and are happy to supply other veterinarians to treat their own patients.



To help streamline our services, we are uniting our practices.

The Animal Emergency Centre will become a part of East Island 24hr Animal Hospital, and you may notice we will be using the Creature Comforts logo for all of the practices. Everything else will stay the same – the same location, same management, same owners, same vets, same nurses and same dedication to our values. We at the Creature Comforts Group look forward to serving you and your pets.

Dr David Gething and all of the Creature Comforts Team.
