Birchwood Animal Hospital works closely with the Canadian Animal Blood Bank to help provide much needed blood and blood products for dogs across Canada. We wish to extend a huge thank you to our generous canine patients and their families for taking time to donate to this great cause.

Contact Amber at 204-832-1368 to learn more about how your pet can become a blood donor today.

Companion Animal Health Fund

When the Companion Animal Health Fund was created in the late 1970s, its founders had modest hopes for its future success. But thanks to the tremendous support of dedicated people across Canada, the Fund has exceeded those early expectations over and over again.

Donations from individual pet owners, veterinarians, breed and sport organizations and pet health companies have helped to train companion animal health specialists, have supported dozens of research investigations and have transformed the Western College of Veterinary Medicine into a centre of excellence for companion animal health research and education.

Now you can turn the Companion Animal Health Fund into your very own pet project. Support the CAHF and play a vital role in improving the care and welfare of pets around the world. Make a tax-creditable donation as a one-time gift, as an annual pledge, or use the U of S preauthorized chequing plan for monthly contributions. Or, you can make an ultimate gift by including a contribution to the Fund in your will.
