Please bathe your pet prior to surgery and make sure they are flea and tick free. If your dog has ticks or shows signs of tick borne illness, you will be turned away until your dog receives treatment. This is because tick diseases cause excessive bleeding during surgery. Treatment consists of removing ticks carefully, making sure you get the heads to prevent infection or disease (do not attempt to burn them off or use chemicals as it doesn’t dislodge the ticks, but will cause them to regurgitate its contents back into your pet, this causes infection and disease), spot on treatment and an antibiotic if your pet is showing signs of illness. If you are unable to afford the spot on treatment and/or antibiotics, please contact us, we may be able to help.
