Pre-Surgical Instructions for Adult Dogs and Cats

Please withhold food after midnight the night before surgery. Water can be left out throughout the night but do not allow your pet to gorge themselves on water in the morning before they come in.

If your pet is current on their rabies vaccination, you must bring their shot record or rabies vaccination certificate with you in the morning or we will require they get a new one while they’re here.

Pre-Surgical Instructions for Dogs and Cats under 4 Months

Because your animal is under 4 months, please withhold food after midnight tonight but feed them ¼ of the amount of food they regularly eat in the morning, before you bring them in. Please continue to allow full access to water.

If your pet is current on their rabies vaccination, you must bring their shot record or rabies vaccination certificate with you in the morning or we will require they get a new one while they’re here.

Pre-Surgical Instructions for Rabbits 4 months and older

Rabbits must be at least 4 months of age before they are spayed or neutered. Please continue to provide regular access to food and water up until surgery.  Also, please bring food (fresh greens, pellets, and hay) with you to their appointment so that the rabbit may eat immediately after surgery.

Rabbits must eat, drink, urinate and defecate before they can go home after surgery. Some rabbits go home the same day and others may suggest stay the night. Please bring your rabbit in a cage or carrier for transport.

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Instructions

Please arrive between 7:30-9:00 am. We are strict regarding our drop off times. If you arrive after 9:00 am you will be charged a $10 late fee per animal. When you arrive, please fill out the necessary paper work and be prepared to show proof of a rabies vaccination, voucher, coupon, etc. at time of check-in. If your animal gets excited or stressed easily, it may be best to leave your pet in the car during this process.

We will instruct you on when to bring your animal in. All dogs are required to be on leashes and all cats are required to be in carriers.

Your dog will be ready for pick up between 4 and 5 pm the same day. Your cat will be ready for pick up between 5 and 6 pm the same day.

Please bring your voucher or program paperwork with you in the morning. You will be charged full price if we do not receive your voucher.
