Cats will need some extra TLC before their vet appointment.

Food/Water Before the Appointment

  • Adult cats and dogs should not have any food after midnight the night before.  Kittens 6 months and under should have food removed the morning of surgery.  Water is fine to leave out.
  • You can bring a small amount of food for your cat or kitten.  We will feed them a small meal when they wake up.

Day of the Appointment

  • Cats should arrive at the clinic between 7:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. in individual, clean and PLASTIC carriers or traps. One carrier per cat. No cardboard carriers please. For your convenience, carriers are available at the clinic for $35.
  • Community cats should be transported in traps.
  • Payment is received at drop-off in the morning only. We accept cash, check or credit card (Visa®, MasterCard®, Discover®, and American Express®).
  • Pick up time is between 4:00 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Each cat goes home with written discharge instructions and a medical record with a rabies tag and certificate.

Medical Release Form

To save time, please download our Medical Release Form for Cats or Medical Release Form for Dogs and bring the completed form to your scheduled appointment.

Catching Community Cats

We realize that trapping community cats is not an exact science. We are willing to work with you over a period of several days or weeks to get them into the clinic for sterilization.
