MY DOG STAYS INDOORS OTHER THAN TO GO TO THE BATHROOM. DOES SHE STILL NEED TO BE ON MONTHLY HEARTWORM PREVENTION?
Yes, heartworms are carried by mosquitos, and they can be infected by just one bite, whether that is indoors or outdoors. After a negative heartworm test, the dog should be started on monthly heartworm prevention. This pill is easy to give, and most dogs think it is a treat! They are inexpensive and should be given to the dog every 30 days for the rest of his or her life. We also offer topical solution, too.
DOES MY PET NEED TO GO THROUGH ONE HEAT CYCLE BEFORE BEING SPAYED?
No, it is best to have her spayed before the first heat cycle. Dogs/cats can be spayed and neutered starting at 4 months of age, with the ideal time being between 4-6 months of age.
DOES MY PET NEED VACCINES?
Pets need vaccines to stimulate the immune system to fight a certain number of diseases that could otherwise be life threatening. Vaccine protocol can very by pet, due to age, lifestyle and specific need. Generally vaccines start around 6-9 weeks and are continued in a series as the puppy/kitten ages.
On the morning of your pet’s surgery, they must be dropped off between 6:45-7:00AM. You can pick them up at 4PM on the same day of their surgery. We suggest that your pet be up to date on vaccinations prior to surgery. If your pet is not up to date on vaccinations, they will be administered during the appointment and you will be charged accordingly.
I SCHEDULED A SPAY/NEUTER SURGERY FOR MY PET. WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?
A $50 deposit for your surgery appointment will be charged upon booking. It will be applied to your surgery grand total.
The $50 deposit is non-refundable should you not show for your appointment or if your pet cannot be operated on (ate food, not up-to-date on vaccines, etc.). The $50 deposit will only be refunded if your appointment is cancelled within 14 days.
If you are a Wright-Way Rescue adopter, this deposit is separate from the deposit you made guaranteeing your pet’s alteration.
If you are a Lambs Farm adopter, you will be refunded this deposit as long as you show for your appointment and your pet can be operated on (didn’t eat food, up-to-date on vaccines, etc.).
