The Night Before Surgery
No food for your pet after midnight the night before surgery. They can have water through the night.
Exception: Pets under 5 months of age may eat up until 6:00 a.m. the day of surgery.
The Morning of Surgery
Drop-off is between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. If your appointment is not at our stationary clinic in Middlesex, drop-off is from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m. (Pick-up for cats is exactly 4:30 p.m. Pick-up for dogs at our stationary clinic is either 3:00 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. but not in between.)
Even though your pet may not have eaten since midnight, s/he will most likely still need to go to the bathroom. Please give your cats access to a litter box and walk your dogs before bringing them to the clinic.
Please Leave Pets in Cars While Checking In!
Allow 30 minutes for the check in process. You will need to read over the agreement and sign/date the paperwork. Make sure to bring all required documents (we must see a rabies certificate if you do not want us to vaccinate your pet against rabies (your pet does not have to have a rabies vaccination prior to this appointment, we just need to see the certificate IF s/he is NOT getting a rabies vaccination through us). We do not accept debit or credit cards. We request payment in cash at check-in.
Cats must be in Carriers! If you do not have a carrier, we will send them home in a cardboard one and the charge is $5.
