We are accepting new clients on a limited basis.

If you are an existing client with a current or new pet you will continue to be seen on a walk in basis like you have always done.

If you have never been to us with any pet before, please read below for details on your first visit.

Post-operative Instructions

Dog Spay and Castration or Cat Spay

  • Your pet has skin sutures that will need to be removed in 10 to 14 days.  Until those sutures are removed your pet should not be bathed or submerged in water to prevent bacteria from entering the wound.  If a bath is needed you can give a towel bath of the area as needed.

  • Pets will wake up from anesthesia and return to normal at different rates.  Don’t allow your pet at the top of stairs or anyplace that it could fall and get hurt.  Please only feed one quarter of a normal meal late tonight while you are watching in case your pet vomits from the effects of anesthesia.

  • Until sutures are removed your pet should be leash walked only.   Do not encourage wrestling, tug of war, or other especially active play until the sutures are removed. 

  • If your pet licks or chews at the suture site place an Elizabethan collar on immediately so that sutures aren’t chewed out and an infection doesn’t develop.

  • An injection was given at the time of surgery for pain and inflammation.  Most pets will not require any additional pain medications, but if your pet seems especially sensitive around the incision tomorrow you can call and request a prescription for additional pain control.

Cat Castration (Males)

  • Follow up care for a cat castration is the same as for a spay except there are no sutures.  Unless otherwise specified you do not need to return for a follow up appointment.

Cat Declaw

  • Your cat will need to return for a bandage change 3 days after surgery.  If this falls on a weekend or holiday you can recheck the work day before or after.

  • Some cats will pull their bandage off before their recheck appointment.  This is not an emergency.  Please bring them in the following business day to replace the bandage to reduce the risk of infection.
