    We prefer to see patients by appointment. We will see walk-ins as well, but you may have to wait a little longer as clients with an appointment will be seen first.

  4. Can I make payments?
    Payment is required at the time of service.
  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. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and 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 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 have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
  9. Do you board pets?
    Yes, we do boarding for our clients. We have boarding space for both dogs and cats. We do not board birds or other small animals.
  10. What are your kennels like?
    Our kennels are all indoor and air-conditioned. The dogs are walked 3 times daily while they are boarding. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own. All boarders are housed in their own separate kennel. We will be happy to give you a tour of our boarding area upon request.
