Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
Are you a Vet Tech?
Do you have any experience with blood draws on animals?
Will the Vet do the draw for you?
Do have the tube with the anticoagulant?
What size guage needle are you planning on using?
The Syringes do not contain the anticoagulants, but the test tubes in which you put the blood should have it. You will need to either get the tubes from the lab or the Vet. Depending on the size of the Bullies, you will need to have different gage needles as well as syringes. The draw is not hard, but you will need know how to get the vein and not infiltrate it. I would try to speak to the Vet before this undertaking and get some refresher courses on the blood draw. If you do something wrong you may cost the breeder an expensive dog. I in good conscience tell you on how to do the draw, without you seeing the proper procedure and being there in person. If it was giving a subcutaneous injection, I would be happy to give instruction, but in this situation, It would be unethical for me to give you instruction and take a chance in the animal being hurt. If you like I can opt out of this question and leave it open for another expert who may want to explain the procedure. Respectfully, XXXXX XXXXX
Even with you going to the Vet tomorrow I will have to say I cannot help you with this. I will opt out and leave the question for another expert who may feel more comfortable in helping you. I appreciate you giving me a chance to answer your question. respectfully, XXXXX XXXXX
