My last two Danes occasionally donated blood at our vets but we have signed Brooke up to donate regularly at the Royal Veterinary College. He has given two units so far and loves the experience. As far as he is concerned this is a place where he gets lots of treats, an extra meal and lots of fuss.

He can be seen donating blood at the RVC at: https://youtu.be/_XBoL7t1SD8

I will also try to post photos

O m gee I've watched the whole episode,,,I'm choked Sharon, is he sedated before hand..
Seemed to take an age and he never moved. Is it true that any blood suits any dog?
Unbelievable act of kindness and just wonderful.
God bless and well done, what a star xxxx

He wasnt sedated. I got him down and then with a treat got hom to lie on his side. He was spoken too all the time and I held his head.

He just sees the time as going for lots of treats and fuss and gets excited when we arrive x
