Registration is first come, first served. Arrive early, especially if registering a female cat. For each clinic date, we sign-up approximately 20 males and 15 females, with 3 additional females as standby’s. On the day of surgery, please bring cat in clean, secure, carrier (not soft sided) lined with newspaper.

If your cat recently had kittens:  The mother’s milk must be dried up before surgery. Kittens should nurse for 8 weeks.  Afterwards, the mother and kittens MUST be separated and it will take at least 2 weeks for them to dry up.  If the kittens occasionally nurse, they keep the milk stimulated and the mother won’t dry up.  Milk isn’t sterile and if the vet would cut into a milk gland it could cause an infection.
