SPAY & NEUTER PROCEDURE
Every spay/neuter begins with an examination of your pet by a surgeon, during which you can ask any questions you may have. Follow up care is available five days a week during recovery. Our spay/neuter services include::
• Safe anesthesia designed to minimize stress and ensure a smooth recovery.
• Pain management before and after surgery.
• Attention and recovery by skilled veterinary technicians who continuously monitor your pet before, during, and after surgery with state-of-the-art equipment. Pets recover on cushioned beds with heated pads and blankets.
***If you do not have proof of a rabies vaccination at the time of check in, one will be required at the time of surgery for $15.
We offer addional medical services during surgery: microchipping, umbilical hernia repair, dewclaw removal, vaccinations, heartworm testing, FelV/FIV testing, flea and heartworm preventative, IV fluids, pre-op blood testing, ear mite treatment, and ear and eye examinations.
