  5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
    Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 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.
  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, 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.
  7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
    Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 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 reproduce. However, there are plenty of advantages to having your pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include eliminating development of cystic ovaries and uterine infections and decreasing the occurrence of mammary tumors, the desire to roam the neighborhood, the incidence of prostate cancer, inappropriate behavior like spraying and marking, and lastly, controlling the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

    No we do not board pets.
