2. Do I need to have an appointment?
Yes, patients are seen by appointment. For your convenience, "drop-off" appointments are also available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for the day.
3. What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check, Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and CareCredit.
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 any time after two months of age but four to five months is ideal. Female cats should be spayed prior to their first heat cycle which can occur any time after five months of age. Male cats begin to produce testosterone at four months of age and are usually fertile by six months.
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 and blood counts of your cat. 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 10 days following the surgery.
8. Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?
Absolutely not. There is no advantage to letting your cat have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you cat spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted kittens.
9. Do you board pets?
Yes, we do board cats but not dogs or other pets. You are welcome to drop by for a tour of the facility.
10. What are your kennels like?
Our boarding ward is indoors and climate-controlled. We have three sizes of cages. Sociable cats who like to get out and about and who are compatible with our "house cats" are allowed time out of their cages while they are boarding. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own.
