Schedule a spay/neuter appointment

Note for dog parents: Like humans going to the doctor, many dogs can feel anxious when visiting a vet clinic. If your dog is overly anxious, overly fearful, or possibly aggressive when visiting a vet clinic, please complete this appointment request form instead of using the scheduling platform below. We will reach out to you with specific questions that will allow us to identify potential accommodations and schedule the best experience for you and your dog's spay/neuter visit.

Before your pet's visit

Please bring the following items to your visit:

  • A carrier or crate for your cat or rabbit with clean bedding inside; dogs must be leashed
  • Proof of qualification for our program
  • Photo ID with matching proof of qualification
  • Emergency contact information
  • Cash or credit/debit card for payment

If you do not bring adequate proof of qualification, we will not be able to perform surgery on your pet.

Children under 18 cannot qualify for or authorize surgical procedures on pet patients.

Other things to consider

  • Do not feed your pet the morning of surgery unless he or she is less than 5 months old. Pets 5 months and under should get a small amount of food about a third of their normal morning meal prior to check-in.
  • Your pet can have water up until the time of surgery.
  • Please walk dogs prior to check-in so they can eliminate before being kenneled.
When you arrive for your pet's visit

When you arrive for your pet’s visit, we will:

  • Ask for photo ID and proof of your qualification for our program.
  • Go over the anesthesia release form and client questionnaire, ask if your pet has any health concerns or allergies, and answer any other questions you may have.
  • Ask if you would like additional services for your pet, such as microchip identification or rabies and distemper vaccinations.
  • Weigh and examine your pet to identify any obvious health concerns that may require postponement or cancellation of surgery (dehydration, upper respiratory infection, heart disease, term pregnancy) and check for hernias, undescended testicles, signs of previous surgery, or pregnancy. If any such concerns arise, our veterinarians will perform a more comprehensive exam on your pet and will provide you with recommendations.
  • Provide an estimate based on the preliminary exam and request payment for surgical fees.
  • Place an ID necklace on your pet
  • Answer any additional questions you may have
  • Provide an estimated time to pick up your pet.
After your pet's surgery

We will provide printed, detailed care instructions when you pick up your pet following surgery. You can also read post-op care and recovery instructions or watch our video now.
