FAQ"S ABOUT OUR CLINIC:

Here are some questions/answers that we are frequently asked. If you have additional questions that aren't covered here, please feel free to call us at 954-581-1701

Our hospital is open Monday - Saturday from 8:00am to 6:00pm. And to accommodate all our patients who have a tough work schedule, we are open on SUNDAY from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

2. Do I need to have an appointment?

Yes, patients are seen by appointment.

3. What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express

4. Can I make payments?

Payment is required at the time of service.

5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?

Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 4 to 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

6. What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

This is a blood test that is taken here at the clinic and sent to our labs for results within 24 hours prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.

7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?

Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 10 days following the surgery.

8. Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?

No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

9. Do you board pets?

Yes, we do offer boarding services but we can do not have personnel through the evening. 

10. Do you offer bathing and grooming services?

Since we are a small clinic we do not have the necessary room to provide these services. We can recommend groomers in your area including a mobile groomer.
