Read each of the following prior to scheduling your appointment:
Drop off 7:15am-8:15am; pick up 4:00pm-5:00pm (we close at 5:30pm); a mask is required and to keep a 6 ft distance during conversations.
You will receive a confirmation email after your appointment has been reviewed and released (typically 2-3 business days after scheduling it) and a reminder email, text or call 1-2 days prior to your cat or dog's appointment.
If you cannot keep the appointment, let us know by text or email at least 24 hours in advance, this surgical opening will be needed by another cat or dog.
The surgery age range is 3 months (12 weeks) to 7 years for cats and dogs (younger and older exceptions are at veterinarian's discretion).
Use the Note Field to ask scheduling questions as we set up and confirm your pet's appointment.
If you have an outdoor cat that you haven't had in a carrier or trap before, read through this trapping tips page to make the process easier on your cat and safer for you, too. Trapped cats do not need a surgery appointment. Arrive 7:15am-8:15am, or text or email us if a special arrangement is needed.
If you are on government assistance, or need a portion of the surgery cost sponsored by a donor, one-time household, surgical cost help may be available. Use the note field to mention your need. If you have received surgery funding help in the past, you may still use the clinic's services at our regular (partially donor-funded) prices.
Donations are needed and deeply appreciated! Our prices are significantly below our actual expenses so most area families can afford our base fees.
Your pet can easily get vaccinations and a microchip on the day of surgery.
If your pet is current on its vaccinations or your dog is currently receiving monthly heartworm prevention (with a test in the last 12 months) bring a copy of the prevention purchases and test results on the morning of surgery.
Tip: if you have more than one pet to bring on one day, choose 2-3 days into the future to help ensure the number of spots you need, are available. Mention in the note field.
If you have a pregnant cat or dog, this is more urgent, so mention this in the Note Field or contact your primary care veterinary clinic to check appointment availability.
