APL requires that all dogs and cats have a rabies vaccination. If your pet is current on her rabies vaccine, please bring proof of this with you.
Kittens and puppies can be safely spayed or neutered at eight weeks old. All animals over four months of age should have food withheld after midnight the night before surgery. Puppies and kittens four months and younger may have food throughout the night before surgery. All animals may have water until 6:00 a.m. the morning of surgery.
Please inform us if your animal has any prior medical conditions. APL reserves the right to refuse surgery to an animal if a health risk is determined. We will not accept animals exhibiting signs of Upper Respiratory Infection (runny eyes and nose or coughing).
Please bring all dogs on a leash and all cats in a cat carrier.
