       Our team knows surgery can be an anxious time and we are always available to answer any and all questions concerning the upcoming procedure.  

        You are welcome to check up on your pets status, however, we request that you allow plenty of time for your pets procedure to be done. If any questions arise, the doctor may contact you at the number on the Authorization Form.  

        With our canine patients we advise clients to drop off the patient between 7:30 and 8:00 in the morning, most patients are ready to be picked up by 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

        With our feline patients we advise clients to drop off the patient between 7:30 and 8:00 in the morning and recommend that the patient stays overnight and are able to be picked up after 8:00 a.m the following morning.

      We do advise all owners to call prior to pick up to confirm this time, if not directed otherwise at time of drop -off. 

       When you arrive to take your pet home, the receptionist will bill you out and a staff member will go over all discharge orders verbally and give you a written copy. If you do not understand any instructions, please do not hesitate to ask them to go over them one more time.  

We hope surgery day will be a pleasant experience. We look forward to serving you and your pet on the upcoming surgery day and years to come!

Testimonial

  • "I've been taking my pets that I own myself around 7 years, but my family has used them for my entire life, it is the only place we've ever gone. The staff is great to work with and very knowledgeable. Once we had a pet with more serious medical issues and Dr. Kitty did such a great job of referring us to a specialist, and taking care of us. I will definitely be taking my pets there for years to come."
