Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
By spaying or neutering your cat, you’ll help control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy shelter animals being euthanized in Canada each year simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around. There are also medical and behavioural benefits to spaying and neutering your pets.
During a spay or neuter, a veterinarian removes certain reproductive organs, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus for females and testes for males. It makes your cat unable to reproduce while eliminating the heat cycle (for females) and prevents breeding instinct-related behaviour.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Kittens should be spayed or neutered when they reach sexual maturity, which is usually at the age of 4-6 months. However, a cat can be safely spayed or neutered at any age.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
