After you make an appointment to bring your pet to a spay/neuter clinic, what then?
You will be contacted by phone 2 -3 days prior to your scheduled appointment. You will be given instructions for preparing your pet or feral cat for surgery. All tame cats must be in individual carriers – hard plastic sided carriers are preferred – soft sided carriers or cardboard boxes are not acceptable.
You will be asked to bring your animal to the clinic in the morning between 7:30 and 8:00 am. When you arrive to drop off your pet you will be asked to complete the required paperwork and sign a surgery permission form. (Click HERE to view the surgery permission form). You will be given an approximate time for pick up. Pick up times vary according to the surgery day and may not be exact.
Upon arrival dogs will be put in a kennel, but cats will remain in their carriers. The veterinarian will examine your pet to make sure that he or she is a good surgical candidate unless he/she is not able to be handled. If there are any concerns (a heart murmur, severe upper respiratory infection, for instance) you will be notified by phone and the condition will be discussed with you. Otherwise your pet will be cleared for surgery.
The first step is a pre-anesthetic injection. This will help your pet relax and will make them a little sleepy. Dogs will then get to go outside for a potty break. Then, the actual anesthetic is administered and the animal is prepped for surgery and the actual surgery is then performed.
After the surgery your pet will be moved to a recovery area and will be monitored as he or she wakes up. They are kept warm and cozy and are given lots of soft towels to cuddle with as they nap. Volunteers will check on their progress throughout the recovery period. Dogs are taken outside for another potty break after they wake up. At the end of the day the veterinarian will check your pet and release him or her to go home. No animals will leave the clinic unless checked by the veterinarian.
When you return to pick up your pet a volunteer Humane Society member will review the release paperwork with you. You will be told what to expect over the next few days as your animal recovers from his or her surgery. Click Here to view Post-Surgery Instructions. You will also be told of any conditions or medical issues veterinarian may have found during examination which may require follow up at your local veterinarian.
Now is the time for you to ask questions, if you have any.
You can then pay your bill by cash or check. Once your bill is paid you can take your pet home!
Please call 607-594-2255, Ext 205 for further information and determination of eligibility for this program.
