  • ANESTHESIA/SEDATION PROCEDURES

  • If your cat is undergoing a sedation or anesthesia procedure, some risk always exists. Because of this we require blood tests on all cats 8 years and older and recommend it for those under 8 years. Pre-surgery blood work consists of a CBC which checks blood cells and chemistries which check blood sugar, kidney and liver functions. The test cost is $139.50. (Initial one)

  • (Initial) Cats can vomit food under anesthesia and inhale into their lungs causing death.
  • Feline Leukemia/Feline AIDS tests

  • MICROCHIP:

  • A microchip is inserted under the skin on the back of the neck. This chip registers you and your cat’s information and also allows for us to scan your cat’s temperature without a thermometer. If your cat is lost, a shelter or veterinary hospital is required to scan for a chip prior to adopting out or euthanizing. The cost for this procedure is $54.50

  • BIOPSIES

    (for lump/tumor removals only)
  • DENTALS

  • (Initial)
  • OVERNIGHT STAYS

    In the event the doctor recommends an overnight stay (spays, declaws, cystotomy etc.), I understand that continuous presence of personnel is not provided during those hours.

  • LIFE SAVING EMERGENCY

  • I acknowledge that I am responsible for payment in full for the above procedure and treatments at the time my cat is discharged.
    If your cat is being hospitalized for treatment or non-routine surgery, a $200.00 deposit is required.
    I further agree that I, or an authorized agent, will pick up this cat and pay for all accrued charges within five days of receiving written or oral notification that my cat is ready to be released. Such notice will be given at the phone/address maintained on the clinic’s patient/client record. I understand that if I fail to comply with this policy, the practice will handle this as an abandonment case, and I will be responsible for all fees incurred.
