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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
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 35,000 dogs and cats have been spay/neutered at our clinics.
Effective January 1, 2018, we cannot accept dogs weighing more than 80 pounds. If your dog exceeds our weight limit and/or you prefer to make appointments online, please click on the providers listed below, who may be able to meet your needs.
Absolutely. In Georgia, it is illegal to practice veterinary medicine without a license. Our vet, Dr. Amber Polvere, has performed over 45,000 spay/neuter surgeries.
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. We offer vaccinations only to spay/neuter clients. Click here to see the Hours & Fees page for current pricing.
