The number of surgeries that can be performed by the spay/neuter van is limited based on the size of animals requiring the surgery. On average, the van can perform up to 16 surgeries per day. Appointments are not required, the surgeries are determined on a first come-first serve basis. Due to the difficulty of performing hysterectomies to sterilize female animals, the veterinarian may limit these surgeries to ten per day.
Sterilization surgery is a major surgery.
The owner(s) of the pet should expect to leave the animal at the spay/neuter van for a few hours. If you have a cat or kitten please bring them in a carrier.
If you plan to spay or neuter your pet through the Mobile Pet Vet, please arrive before our starting hour (and even earlier on Saturday) to secure a surgery. Also please follow these pre-surgery guidelines: *Arrive 30 minutes before opening time
1. Pets brought for spaying/neutering should be fasting, nothing to eat after 8 pm the evening before surgery.
2. Puppies and kittens (6 months - 1 year) should not have solid food after 11 p.m. of the night before the surgery.
High-risk pets that may not be spayed or neutered due to health risks include:
>Younger than 6 months
>Older than 3 years of age
>Females in heat, pregnant or are still producing milk
>Males whose testicles have not descended
>Animals larger than 50 pounds
>No aggressive animals
***No Dobermans due to blood work before surgery***
*IMPORTANT NOTE: It is extremely difficult to maneuver a large unconscious animal without risking injury to it due to space constraints inside the van.
For customers needing vaccinations and/or micro chipping ONLY!!!…Please arrive after 8:00 am to avoid a wait while we tend to customers and pets that have arrived for spaying/neutering services.
>We only Vaccinate Healthy Pets
>Any sick pets please keep them in the car
