Preparing for Your Appointment

Spay and neuter appointment patients must be dropped off between 7:00 and 8:00 AM and picked up that afternoon between 3:00 and 4:00 PM. All dogs must be on a leash and all cats must be in individual carriers. A current rabies vaccination is required by law – if your animal is not current on vaccines please select them from the dropdown when scheduling the spay/neuter appointment – no need for an additional vet trip. Please bring written proof of rabies vaccination or you can get your rabies vaccine updated at the time of surgery for an additional $5.

Pets need to be 12 weeks and older, weigh at least 3 lbs, and in good health. Preoperative blood work is recommended and available to all animals if requested, and is required if an animal is 8 years of age or older. This checks organ functions to ensure that your animal is healthy enough to undergo surgery and costs $85. An appointment for blood work must be set up with the AACSPCA Clinic one week prior to your surgery date if 8 years or older. If you would like your animal to have bloodwork done and they are under 8 years old, bloodwork can be performed on the day of surgery.  If there is a concern with any organ values, postponing surgery may happen.
