4. Can I make payments?

5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?

Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age however each pet is different and spaying/neutering may be recommended at a later time. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery.

7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?

Most of our patients receive  dissolving sutures so suture removal is not required. Procedures involving non-dissolving sutures require them to be removed 10-14 days following the surgery.

8.  Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?

No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having your pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

9.  Do you board pets?

Yes, we do board cats for our clients.
