We like to do the surgical procedure at about 16 weeks. Due to our surgery schedule, it usually takes 6-8 weeks to get an appointment. That's why we recommend calling us to schedule your pet's surgery when they are 8-10 weeks old. We want the surgery to happen before your pet reached sexual maturuty and start the bad behaviors such as: spraying, marking, aggression, wandering, moodiness etc.
With that being said, new research has shown that larger dogs benefit from waiting until they are 9-12 months of age. This allows the joints to develop fully before the procedure.
At 8,12 and 16 weeks
Typically at the 4 and 6 week mark. However if you have an older pet we can still get them wormed. For older animals we recommend every couple of months because a lot of the parasites are zoonotic which means that if your pet has worms, you could be exposed and infected yourself! If your pet is on Heartworm prevention, which we recommend, it is very helpful against the instestinal parasites as well.
For 24-hour 7 days a week veterinary care we recommend the Care Center (513-530-0911) in Blue Ash or MedVet (513-561-0069) off of Redbank Rd
2 weeks after the babies have been weaned. This allows the milk glands to decrease in production, and reduce in size.
Typically at 4 weeks they should be able to eat solid food. Some moms are very nice and will continue to nurse them longer. You may have to separate them to encourage weaning, if that's the case.
No, we just don't have the facilities for it. We recommend Brown County Humane Society in Georgetown, OH or The Animal Rescue Fund in Amelia, OH.
Try contacting the League for Animal Welfare, The Scratching Post or Peppermint Pig Animal Rescue, for assistance.
Yes, please make sure that the voucher is not expired by the time your surgery date is here.
Not at this time
Absolutely. Your pet may be the most obedient and well trained pet in the universe, however once they walk through our doors I can not guarantee that our other client's pets are as obedient as yours. Cats should be in carriers and dogs should be on leash.
Call us at 513-734-7729. We would need to know how much was consumed, what type, and the time frame of consumption.
Use peanut butter, cheese or lunchmeat. Give the pet a little bit of that, then give them one that's encasing a pill. They will think the second treat will taste as good as the first.
Open up their mouth, drop the pill in , and stroke the throat to encourage swallowing, alternatively you could squirt a syringe of water down their throat to wash it down.
Purchase the product PillPockets which will encase the pill in a premade treat
