Dogs donate blood – level 2
In Taiwan, an animal hospital became the first in the country where dogs can donate blood. The hospital hopes to help injured dogs which normally rely on ad hoc donations.
When a dog gets injured, it cannot always get a blood transfusion quickly. People must find a healthy dog over 20 kilograms in weight and between 1 to 8 years old.
Most dogs in the programme belong to students at the university. The scientists hope to help save the lives of cats and other pets as well.
Difficult words: donate (give something for free), rely on (if you rely on something, the thing is very important to you), ad hoc (not planned, improvised).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
