If we get an emergency during the day or after hours at 3 o'clock in the morning, Berkley is here and available to do his job. He's a value to us.Veterinarian Mike Stewart said Berkley has saved hundreds of lives, including an abandoned Rottweiler that was only 37 pounds when he was found.
Now he is a happy 100-pound Rottweiler.The vet clinic monitors Berkley’s platelet and hematocrit counts, never taking more than a pint of blood from him in a month. Stewart considers Berkley a part of the Shawnee Animal Hospital family.
He’s a good dog. He just brings us joy. He’s helping others by helping bring joy to humans by keeping their pets alive.Most healthy dogs that are older than a year and weigh more than 35 pounds can donate blood and be a hero just like Berkley.
