- For all appointments, morning registration begins at 8 a.m. — full registration can take up to one hour. The owner of the animal must be present at morning registration to complete registration forms and sign the consent to surgery form. The person identifying as the owner of the animal must match the name on the proof of qualification (eg: ODSP stub).
- Cost for surgery is $30 per cat. Microchipping (optional) is an additional $20 per cat. Our clinic receives payment during morning registration and takes cash only.
- Cats must have no food after 8 p.m. the night before surgery. They can have water any time before surgery.
- We ask that cats be brought to our clinic in secure pet carriers, to ensure that all cats are safe and secure during morning registration. Upon registration, cats will be moved into cages on the mobile clinic; owners will be required to bring pet carriers home and return with them for pick-up.
- We require two business days’ notice if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment. Cancellations made less than two business days before an appointment a “no-show” the day of the appointment are subject to our cancellation policy. Failure to notify us within two business days of your appointment will result in a $30/cat cancellation fee payable at your next appointment. Appointments are in high demand and your early cancellation will allow another patient access to a timely spay/neuter surgery. Please contact 613-725-3166 ext. 221 to notify us of a cancellation.
