- At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying and neutering recommendations depend on the individual pet and circumstances. Together, you and the doctor will determine what is right for your pet.
- What is pre-anesthetic blood screening?
This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests major organ functions and blood cell counts to assure safety during surgery, as well as the ability to heal following the procedure.
- How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
Procedures that involve non-dissolving sutures may require a complimentary suture removal ten to 14 days following surgery. Many procedures involve sutures under the skin that will dissolve on their own.
