At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 5 to 6 months of age. 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. We can refer you to the proper hospital for this procedure since surgery cannot be done in the home.

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, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery

How long do the sutures stay in after my pet’s surgery?
Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 14 days following the surgery either at the place of surgery or through a home appointment.

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 you 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.

Do you board pets?
No. But we would be happy to give you a list of local facilities that do.
