Spay Day 2019 is Wednesday November 6th

  


Why are you only accepting cats for Spay Day 2019?

A: We are wrapping up one of the largest orphan kitten years on record. Over 30 abandoned kittens have passed through our doors this spring/summer alone. This is one of the ways we are trying to help the community reduce the number of unwanted cats and kittens in the Parkland.

  
Why is the focus on strays, low income, and working cats?

A: We understand that some animal lovers cannot always afford the cost of veterinary care. We also know that some people don’t see the value in spaying/neutering their farm cats. We’re hoping by significantly reducing the surgery cost, we’ll be able to entice some of these clients to fix these hard-working hunters. 


Is there a limit to how many cats I can book?

A: To service the greatest number of clients possible, there is a limit of 2 cats per household. Additional cats will be waitlisted. In the event of a cancellation, owners of waitlisted patients will be contacted on a first come, first serve basis.


How old does my kitten need to be to get fixed?

We accept cats 5 months of age or older.


Can you spay my cat if she is already in heat?

A: Yes! This can make the surgery more complicated and time consuming, so an additional $35.00 will be charged if your cat is in heat, obese or pregnant.


Will you tattoo my cat?

A: All cats will receive a tattoo in the right ear for identification purposes.


What about shots?

A: Discounted vaccinations and deworming are available to all to Spay Day participants. Please contact us for more information on prices and additional treatment requests.  

 
What is the process on the day of surgery?

A: Please arrive at the clinic at 8:00am with your cat in a secure pet carrier. A team member will have paperwork for you to fill out, so please give yourself plenty of time. Cats will be ready for pick up as early as 3:00pm that afternoon. All cats must be picked up prior to 4:30pm. 

Please note: Cats not contained in a secure pet carrier will not be accepted. The surgery will be cancelled and rescheduled at another date at full price


Help! I don’t have a pet carrier!

A: Cat kennels are available for loan at the Dauphin Vet Clinic.


Why can’t the clinic offer these prices all year?

A: Spay Day is an opportunity for us to give back to the community that supports us and promotes the benefits of spaying and neutering to help reduce overpopulation. We’re all hands-on deck during Spay Day and running at max capacity to fit as many cats in as possible.  Veterinarians and technicians are donating their services, the clinic’s owners are generously donating the facilities, equipment and what materials they can. When all is said and done, we’re operating at a loss on Spay Day which is why we are limited to offering these prices to once per year.



Please call us if you have additional questions or concerns.
