East End Veterinary Center offers a wide variety of emergency and specialty services that provide support to your pet when he or she needs it most.


Blood Donor Program

Our blood donor program was established to offer hospitalized pets access to life-saving whole blood products without having to wait for a delivery from the blood bank. Timely treatment can often mean the difference between life and death when pets are faced with a critical injury or illness that requires a whole blood transfusion. We also offer free baseline preliminary blood work to all potential donors. Consider signing up your eligible pet today and you very well may safe the life of someone else’s furry family member tomorrow!

Our program includes both canine and feline blood donors. At this time, we do not use blood obtained from our donors for patients outside of our hospital.

If you are interested in having your pet join our Blood Donor Program, please fill out our eligibility questionnaire. You can e-mail the completed questionnaire to or fax it to us at 631-369-4564. If you have any questions about participation in our donor program, please contact the EEVC team at 631-369-4513 to get the process started.
