Ariel gave blood again today.. here are some pictures and the procedure.


First they take a small sample to test for hydration.
The first time they also type the blood.
They tell me Ariel is positive.





If there are no problems with hydration they proceed to the next.
Ariel is placed on a small table.
This is the most stressful part of the procedure for her.
They shave the neck and apply an antispectic wash.





Dog owner holds the head and reassures the dog while two techs
hold the legs and keep dog from moving.
My little sweetheart does not fight this at all.




The vet inserts a large needle into the jugular vein






They weigh the collection to ensure proper collection.
One pint approx 450 ml is collected.






Once a full collection is obtained the needle is removed and
pressure is used to stop the bleeding.
Dog is kept quiet for a minute or two.

She is smiling about her job well done. I love to see Rottie's smile. It warms the heart. Scratch her behind the ear for me.
