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

   Spaying or neutering can be done at at least 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.  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?

   This depends on the type of suture used for the procedure.  The type of suture will be noted on your Surgery Go-Home Form. 
    Procedures using the surgical laser will have sutures that will need 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?

   No we do not. However if you call our office we can recommend several good boarding facilities in our area.
