Surgical procedures are by appointment except for feral cats and male cat neuters. Male cats without appointments must be dropped off between 9:30 and 9:45 AM on days we are open (see calendar). Also we wish to see pregnant cats as soon as possible. If no near-term appointments are available and you can't use another vet, bring her in as soon as possible without an appointment.
Check-in time each day for surgery-related appointments is typically between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM at all locations. Let us know at check-in if there are any special needs, concerns or time constraints. You will be called when your pet is ready to be picked up.
Mobile Van Travel Surcharge ($8.00) If a surgery is performed at a location away from our 169 Waterfront Way, Dalton, GA future clinic, add $8.00 to help cover our travel cost.
Rome Transport Travel Surcharge ($10.00) Since the epidemic has sidelined our mobile van service, we offer periodic transport days to our clinic from Rome (see calendar). The round-trip surcharge is 10 dollars. Appointments are required, phone (706) 671-1104. A deposit will be required to reserve your surgery timeslot.

Deposits when calling for a surgical appointment We have had a number of surgical/dental appointment no-shows which threatens our mission to be able to provide affordable care for your pets. Reluctantly, we will now require deposits to provide more encouragement for people to show up for their appointments. Male cat neuters you bring to our clinic will not require a deposit.
Surgery Intake Forms When you check your pet in for surgery, you will be asked to complete a Surgery Intake Form. If you wish to fill it in before you arrive the forms are available here.
