Low Cost Spay & Neuter Information
Appointments can now be requested via our online scheduling service.
If you are unable to request an appointment, (for example, if the page says none are available) then all appointments are unfortunately full and you will have to try the following Monday.
We will be opening one week of appointments at a time. Appointments will be opened each Monday at 5pm. Please note that our appointment availability is still quite limited, so we recommend requesting your appointment as soon as the schedule goes live. Once your request has been reviewed by our Clinic Staff, you will receive a confirmation email.
Please note that we will only be accepting appointments for healthy and friendly animals at this time. This is to ensure that we can operate our contactless dropoff and pickup protocol in a manner that is safe for both your pets and our staff.

Clients with a scheduled appointment will be given a phone number to text upon their arrival. Please put on a mask or face covering upon pulling into the parking lot and let us know you have arrived. A staff member will come out to the vehicle to bring your animal inside for their surgery.
Pickup for all animals is between 4 and 5pm. The same protocol will be followed for pickup: please put on your mask, text our phone number, and we will bring your animal out to your vehicle.
Clinic clients will be sent an invoice via e-mail during the day once their animal’s surgery is complete. Please ensure to pay your invoice prior to pickup.
- Restrict the animal’s activity for the next ten days to allow the tissue time to heal, & avoid causing the incision to open. Cats should stay indoors. All dogs should go out on a leash to urinate/defecate & then return inside to rest.
- Keep the incision site dry; do not bathe or apply topical ointment during the recovery period.
- Keep males away from unspayed females for 30 days. Keep females away from unneutered males for seven days. Be prepared to keep pets separate during the recovery period.
- Check the incision site twice daily. They should have no drainage; redness & swelling should be minimal.
- Do not allow the animal to lick or chew at the incision. If this occurs, an Elizabethan Collar (cone) MUST be applied to prevent additional licking/chewing that could cause infection.
- Appetite should return gradually within 24 hours of surgery. Do not change the animal’s diet at this time, & do not give them junk food, table scraps, milk, or any other people food during the recovery period. Feeding them their regular diet will help avoid gastro-intestinal upset.
- Minimal redness & swelling of the surgery site should resolve within several days, but if they persist longer, please call our office at (807) 475-8803.
- You should also contact us immediately if you notice any of the following: pale gums; depression; unsteady gait; loss of appetite or decreased water intake; vomiting; diarrhea; discharge or bleeding from the incision; difficulty urinating or defecating; labored breathing.
- Do not give human medication to the animal. It is dangerous & can be fatal.
- If the animal received a vaccine at our clinic other than rabies, please discuss a “booster” vaccine with your regular veterinarian. Canine distemper/parvo vaccine & feline distemper vaccine all need to be “boostered” three to four weeks after administration of the first vaccine for maximum effectiveness.
- We will make every reasonable effort to treat at OUR CLINIC, at minimal cost, any post-operative complications resulting directly from the surgery, if the above post-operative instructions are followed in full. Your regular veterinarian must address illnesses or injuries that are not a direct result of surgery. Please call for an appointment as soon as you see any cause for concern at (807) 475-8803.
