Planning for Surgery
Surgeries are scheduled Monday through Thursday. Dogs and owned cats require an appointment. Appointments are not required for feral cats unless bringing three or more.
Drop-off and pick-up times are different for dogs and cats:
|Type of Pet||Drop-Off||Pick-Up|
Pets must be be checked-in no later than thirty minutes past their designated drop-off time. Mornings are a busy period, so plan to be at our clinic for twenty to thirty minutes when checking-in. If you have not arrived within the thirty minute grace period allowed, then your pet’s surgery may need to be rescheduled.
When You Arrive
Leave dogs in the car until you have checked in. If your dog already has an Elizabethan collar, bring it with you the morning of surgery. If you do not have one, we will be happy to fit him/her with one for an additional $10.
You may bring owned cats inside when checking in. For their safety, all cats must be in carriers prior to entering the clinic. Each cat must leave in its own individual carrier after surgery. If you do not have multiple carriers, we can provide cardboard carriers upon check-out for an additional $5 per carrier.
Community cats (unsocialized or unowned) cats must arrive in a trap or hard sided carrier with a towel, blanket or sheet covering them before entering. If a cat is brought in anything other than a humane trap or hard sided carrier, a transfer fee will be applied. Additionally, we require that each cat leaves after surgery in a trap or hard sided carrier. If one is not provided, carriers can be borrowed for a $20 deposit per carrier. The deposit will be refunded once the carrier is returned.
Please, never cover the trap with a plastic bag or any material that could cause the cat to suffocate. Covering the trap helps to keep the cat calm. All feral cats will receive an eartip during surgery.
- One or two feral cats at a time do not require an appointment.
- Three or more feral cats must have an appointment. Please call 678-561-3491 to make an appointment.
