Your pet must have proof of vaccinations. Required vaccinations for dogs include Rabies, Distemper Parvo, and Bordetella & required vaccinations for cats include Rabies and Distemper. Dogs & cats must be healthy, younger than seven years of age, and under 100 pounds. If we determine that the procedure is not routine (i.e. cryptorchid, hernia), we will call you and either reschedule or discuss any change in cost. Dog neuters over 100 pounds will be accepted on a case by case basis.
We ask that you withhold food starting at 10:00pm the night before surgery. Please drop your pet off at Animal Doctor between 7:30-8:00am the morning of surgery. Your pet will be able to go home between 3:00-5:30pm that same day. Your pet may be more tired that evening, or have a decreased appetite. Please keep your pet quiet for a week to allow them to heal properly. All closures will be made internally with absorbable suture material, so no follow up is required.
