It is imperative that the doctor be able to reach you by phone while your pet is under sedation. Once your pet is awake and alert, a staff member will call you to let you know when they will be ready for pick-up.
Sedate and Shave
Sedation will be administered under the supervision of a doctor according to your pet's weight. A veterinary technician will perform the shave down and monitor your pet while they are sedated.
Please keep in mind that our technicians are not professional groomers. Our goal is functionality, but every effort will be made for them to look as well-groomed as possible.
*Not recommended for outdoor cats.
For the safety of your pet and our staff, drawing blood samples while your pet is under sedation eliminates the risk of causing them unnecessary stress.
Please be aware that each additional treatment will be performed at additional costs that may or may not be included in your previous estimate.
