 At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?

Spaying or neutering should be done between 3 and 6 months of age. Your pet is always given a thorough 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.

What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening and intravenous catheterization?

These are blood tests that are run prior to surgery. They test organ function, blood counts and clotting ability of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening alerts us to underlying medical conditions, assures safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery. IV catheterization and fluid administration during surgery maintains blood pressure, organ profusion and systemic access while your pet is under anesthesia.

 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.

 Do you board pets?

Yes, we have a wonderful boarding facility. We have separate rooms for dogs and cats.

 What are your kennels like?

We can give you a tour of our separate dog and cat boarding rooms. Our dog kennels are all indoor. The dogs are walked at least 2 times daily while they are boarding. The cat boarders are housed in a separate area away from the dogs. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own.
