Feline blood products.
It’s all we do.

Nine Lives Blood Services, PLLC is dedicated to bringing the veterinary community quality feline blood products while educating veterinary professionals about feline transfusion medicine. Our hope is that together we are able to offer feline patients the best care possible. Our fully screened donor cats come to us from local shelters and provide life saving blood products while they wait for a forever home. We make a lifelong commitment to care for our donors for as long as it takes for them to be adopted. We are working every day to improve the health and well being of our donors and all cats across the country.

Our Staff

Alice Parr, LVT
Alice has over 39 years of veterinary blood banking and critical care experience. She started out in 1979 as a Licensed Veterinary Technician in the Emergency and Critical Care Unit at Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The blood donor program quickly became her passion and she worked to grow the program to over 60 canine and 15 feline volunteers. To pursue blood banking full time she left the Michigan State University in 2008 and began working at a local blood bank managing the feline donor colony of over 100 cats. The expanding need for feline blood products has brought about the creation of Nine Lives Blood Services, PLLC.
