   Spaying or neutering can be done at between 4 and 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

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

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

7.  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, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

8.  Do you board pets?

   We have cat boarding facilities.  Cats are housed in their own kitty condo. Boarding for dogs is only for dogs with medical problems which preclude their being boarded at a kennel.  Dogs are housed in an indoor kennel and walked at least twice a day in our fenced back yard.
