Dogs donate blood – level 1

12-07-2016 07:00

Dogs can get injured. Sometimes they need blood. Then you must get blood from another dog. This is not always easy or quick.

An animal hospital wants to help dogs. The hospital is in Taiwan. Dogs there can donate blood at the hospital. The dog must be between 1 and 8 years old. It must be over 20 kilograms heavy. It must be healthy.

The hospital wants to help cats and other pets, too.

Difficult words: need (if you need something, you must have it), blood (the red “water” inside the body), donate (give for free).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
