5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age, but every case is different. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether they are healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended 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 at least one week prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. 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 14 days following the surgery.
8. Do you board pets?
No, but we can let you know the names of private pet sitters that we know and trust to watch our your pet, either in your own home or theirs.

Our clinic is a small one room office at the side of Dr. Switch's home in beautiful West Bloomfield. The small size really lets us focus on your pet for comfort and without the distraction of other pets.
