Do you have a vet?

 


Absolutely. In Georgia, it is illegal to practice veterinary medicine without a license. Our vet, Dr. Amber Polvere, has performed over 30,000 spay/neuter surgeries.

 

Do you give vaccinations?

 


If you cannot provide proof that your pet has a current rabies vaccination, we will administer a rabies vaccination at the time of surgery. Rabies vaccinations are required by GA law. If your pet is not current and is at least 12 weeks old, we will administer a rabies vaccination at no charge. We also offer DAPP (distemper/parvo) vaccinations for dogs and FVRCP (feline distemper) vaccinations for cats. There is an additional charge for DAPP and FVRCP. See the Hours & Fees page for current pricing.



Why do you tattoo the incision site?


All surgery patients receive a small tattoo at the incision to indicate they have been sterilized. This will prevent a previously sterilized animal from having an unnecessary operation. In most cases, the tattoo cannot be seen until the surgery site has been shaved.

Why do I have to provide a deposit for my appointment?

 


In order to keep our prices low, we must schedule a certain number of appointments per day. To encourage you to notify us with cancellations and/or get to your appointment on time, we require a $10 deposit per animal for dog appointments or multiple cat appointments. Your deposit may be provided in the form of a money order or credit card (MasterCard or Visa). Your money order will go towards the cost of your surgery. We do not charge your credit card unless you fail to keep your appointment or provide us with at least a 48-hour cancellation notice. This time frame allows us to schedule another person's pet in your appointment slot. Being late for your appointment counts as missing your appointment. Please familiarize yourself with the clinic location before your appointment date to ensure on-time arrival.

 

What if my schedule won't allow me to come at the regularly scheduled check in/pick up time?

 


We are sorry for the inconvenience but in most cases we cannot accommodate special requests for earlier/later times. You may have someone else bring or pick up your pet. In order to keep our prices low, we do not have staff for a reception area. All patients are checked in and picked up at the same time. We do have a 15 minute grace period for drop off and pick up. Animals that arrive late will NOT be accepted. Boarding is NOT available at any of our clinics. Animals not picked up are considered abandoned and will be taken to animal control.

Why do I have to weigh my dog?

 


In order to serve as many clients as we can in a day it is important that we allot an appropriately sized cage for each surgery patient. We ask for a recently obtained accurate weight at the time the appointment is made. We will charge a $20 fee for any dog that weighs ten percent more than the weight given at the time the appointment was made (see sample below). We have a policy which allows room for growth for puppies less than 6 months of age. All dogs will be weighed when dropped off for surgery. Clients who choose to leave rather than pay the increased fee for weight will be charged a $10 missed appointment fee. If you are unable to obtain an accurate weight for your dog, we recommend you estimate high because there is no extra charge for dogs that weigh less than the weight given at the time the appointment is made.


How do I schedule an appointment?



Call our 24-Hour appointment line, 770-307-3499, to schedule an appointment. You will need to leave a message which includes your name, daytime telephone number, pet information (dog/cat, male/female, age, dog's weight). Please allow 24-48 hours for your call to be returned. If you do not receive a return call, please call and leave your message again.


Please tell us about any prior surgeries (including C-sections), extended illnesses or history of illness/allergies/seizures when scheduling an appointment for your dog or cat.
 
We require proof of rabies vaccination at check-in. If you are unable to provide proof and your pet is at least 12 weeks of age, we will administer a rabies vaccination at no charge.

Spay & Neuter FAQ

 

We offer low cost, high quality spay and neuter surgeries to the public. We encourage pediatric spay/neuter to eliminate the possibility of accidental litters. While there are always risks associated with anesthesia and surgery, animals presented to our clinic are no more likely to experience problems than animals altered at a full-service veterinary clinic. Since August 2005, over 20,000 dogs and cats have been spay/neutered at our clinics.
