- A non-refundable $30 deposit per pet is required when requesting an appointment. The deposit will be applied to your pet’s total bill and the balance is due before your pet can go home.
- Deposits are made online using a credit/debit card only. If using Care Credit or a voucher/certificate to cover your surgery, you must still make a deposit to secure your appointment. The deposit will then be refunded the day of surgery once your voucher is received or Care Credit information is provided for payment.
- Cancellations made 72 hours or more in advance of the surgery date may reschedule without penalty or receive a refund of the deposit and any additional payments paid.
- Cancellations made less than 72 hours in advance of the surgery date will result in a loss of the deposit (additional payment will be refunded) and will require you to reschedule online and provide another $30 deposit to schedule a new appointment.
- We accept cash, debit/credit and Care Credit (no checks).
- Proof of Rabies vaccine is required for all animals. Vaccine cost will be automatically added at booking until proof is received and reviewed.
- Proof can be uploaded during booking or emailed in advance of surgery day.
- Pets must be a minimum of 2 months old and 2 lbs for surgery.
- Pre-surgery bloodwork is highly recommended for animals 8 years and older. This allows us to look for underlying conditions that may make surgery risky.
If you own or operate a qualifying 501c3 dog or cat rescue or municipal shelter and are in need of medical services for the animals in your rescue, you can contact us for special opportunities. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
