PAW IN THE DOOR SPAY / NEUTER
THE PAW IN THE DOOR SPAY / NEUTER PROGRAM routinely provides a pre-surgical exam by the doctor, spay or neuter surgery, rabies vaccination (not optional, even with proof of prior vaccination), and application of Activyl flea control if evidence of fleas are noted. No other YVC services are available at the time of Paw in the Door spay / neuter, except as noted below.
IF THE DOCTOR DECLINES TO SPAY / NEUTER your cat for medical or other reasons, your cat will be discharged to you with a written note from the doctor explaining the decision, and a recommended plan.
YOUR YVC DOCTOR WILL COMMUNICATE WITH YOU in writing, through the YVC techncians, and/or through PID representatives, and not by exam room or phone consultation, due to PID Spay / Neuter Program time constraints.
ADMISSION AND DISCHARGE Your cat can have water and a half-sized breakfast prior to coming in for surgery. When the surgery takes place before 2 pm, patients are typically discharged between 4 and 6 pm the same day. When surgery takes place after 2 pm, patients are typically discharged after 9 am the following day.
