PICK-UP & Post-Surgery:

  • You will be advised by each veterinary team as to when your designated time for pick-up will be. 

    • Please do not travel too far from your location, as they may call to advise you that your animal is ready for pick-up earlier than first stated. Your prompt return is appreciated.

  • Surgeries are performed in an order based on a variety of factors at the discretion of each veterinarian; not by order of intake/check-in. Though obtaining a spot for this event is based on a first-come, first-serve process, surgeries are not.

    • We recommend that you plan accordingly if you go to work in the case that your pet will not be ready for pick-up early.

    • Your pets will be under supervision while awaiting their turn for surgery.

    • Pets are not kept overnight.  You will pick-up your pet on the same day.
