IF YOUR PET IS PRODUCING MILK - we will not spay her. Please wait to schedule your appointment once the puppies or kittens are weaned. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the mother to dry up and be ready for surgery.
If your pet is over 5 years old, please inform us when scheduling the appointment. Pets over 5 years are at increased risk for anesthesia complications and may be better suited in a full service clinic where age appropriate drug protocols can be utilized. Our veterinarian will offer an exam to determine if your pet is a candidate for surgery with us.
