   Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 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. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is performed prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.
 

6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

 
   This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It assesses major organ function and red cell counts. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
 
7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
 
   Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 10 - 14 days following the surgery.
