Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Early neutering can prevent sexually dominant behaviour such as certain types of aggression, mounting and urine marking. Neutering can also decrease some prostate gland issues and eliminate testicular cancer.
Early spaying of your dog can prevent exposure to estrogen which will decrease the risk of mammary cancer. It will also prevent uterine infections in your dog.
Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?
By spaying and neutering your dog you can improve their quality of life and allow them to live a happier, healthier and longer life.
How old should a dog be before they are neutered/spayed?
The current practice is to spay and neuter your dog around 5 – 6 months of age. It is about this time that puberty starts in dogs. In some instances, especially with large breed dogs, delayed spay or neutering can be beneficial.
How much does it cost to neuter/spay a dog?
The cost of a spay or neuter will vary based on the age and size of your dog. Estimates will be provided after a physical exam is performed.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
