Scheduling

Make an Appointment Today!


All pets require an appointment. Drop-off Monday-Friday is from 8:00-8:30am. Pick up is the following morning at 7:30am, or at 4:00 the same day for surgeries performed on Fridays. Please be prompt; we are not able to accommodate late drop-offs and pick-ups.


Please call our office to schedule an appointment: 217-789-7729.


Kittens and puppies can be safely spayed or neutered at 8 weeks old. We recommend spaying or neutering before 5 months of age, before pets hit puberty. Spaying or neutering before 5 months of age ensures your pet won’t have an accidental litter, helps prevent mammary cancer in females, and helps prevent some hormone-related behaviors like urine marking and aggression.


Pre-operative Instructions

 

  • Dogs 4 months of age and older: No food after midnight. Water is allowed. 

  • Puppies and kittens under 4 months of age: Do not withhold food or water. Feed a small meal the morning of surgery. 

  • Cats 4 months and older: Do not withhold food; feed like normal. Water is allowed.


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.
