Frequently Asked Questions
At what age can my pet be spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 4 months of age. Your pet will be given an exam prior to surgery to determine if they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. Current vaccinations are required to be given at time of surgery. A pre- operative blood panel is optional, but recommended, prior to under going anesthesia and surgery. Pain relief will be give and sent home to provide post- operative comfort.
What is the Pre-Operative Blood Panel?
This is a blood test that is preformed in- house prior to surgery. We test organ functions, blood count and clotting function of your pet's circulatory system. This panel is recommended prior to surgery to ensure safety during the procedure and the ability to heal after the procedure.
How long do the sutures need to stay in after my pet's surgery?
Procedures that involve suture material or skin staples should be left in and kept clean 10- 14 days after surgery.
Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter before spaying or neutering?
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, decreasing the chances of cystic ovaries and uterine infections, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the chances of prostate cancer, helping to prevent spraying or marking and decreasing the surplus of kittens and puppies.
Do you board pets?
We offer a day boarding if space allows and boarding for the patients that have severe medical conditions. We also have a boarding facility located on the property next to us.
