At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 4-6 months of age. It is not necessary or recommended to let your female dog or cat experience their first heat cycle or have a litter before having her spayed. Your pet will be 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 depending on the age a Heartworm or FIV Combo test is strongly encouraged.

What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?
These are blood tests that are performed here in the clinic prior to surgery. The tests assess basic organ functions and measure blood counts (white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets) of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to make sure there are no underlying problems that may affect your pet's ability to undergo anesthesia and surgery.

How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
Procedures involving sutures typically require them to be removed in 10-14 days following the surgery. The doctors and staff will explain this in detail following your pet's surgical procedure.

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. Some of these advantages include decreasing the chances of breast cancer later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and life-threatening uterine infection, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

Do you board pets?
