Check in time is at 7:30am, any persons arriving later than 7:45am will be asked to reschedule their animals for another day and the deposit will be forfeited.
Please leave your animals in the safety and comfort of your car until you are checked in with our staff. Dogs and cats who you know as your loving companions can easily be startled and become aggressive around other animals and unfamiliar humans. New places, new sights, new smells and new sounds can be very frightening to even the tamest of animals.
Please be aware check in could take 30-60 minutes.
Our admission form reads:
S/Nipped clinic uses qualified staffing and approved materials for all procedures performed. It is important for you to understand that the risk of injury or death, although extremely low, is always present just as it is for humans who undergo surgery. Carefully read and understand the following before signing your name.
I, acting as owner or agent of the pet named above, hereby request and authorize S/Nipped clinic, through whomever veterinarians they may designate, to perform an operation for sexual sterilization of the animal named on the above portion of this form.
I hereby release S/Nipped clinic, all veterinarians, assistants, volunteers, directors, and employees from any and all claims arising out of or connected with the performance of this procedure or any adverse reactions from vaccinations. I agree that I have not and will not claim any right of compensation from them, or any of them, or file action by reason of such sterilization or attempted sterilization of such animal or any consequences related thereto. Owner/agent hereby agrees to indemnify and hold S/Nipped spay and neuter clinic harmless for any damages caused during transportation or handling of the animal, or for any damages caused by any unforeseeable events including fire, vandalism, burglary, extreme weather, natural disaster or acts of God. Your animal will receive a small tattoo on his/her underside to show that s/he has been sterilized.
We do have restrictions at the clinic. Our belief is that spay/neuter is an elective procedure and may not be beneficial for all pets, therefore we will decline pets who are not good surgical candidates. Those pets 7 years and older are at a much higher risk during surgery so the S/Nipped team asks that you contact your local veterinarian for those geriatric surgical clients, exceptions may be made on a case by case basis with prior blood work only.
Our staff is paid hourly and our nonprofit cannot afford overtime wages. So please be responsible and arrive at the designated check-out time. Any animals remaining at 5:30pm will be turned over to Coos County Animal Control, fees may be associated with this process as Animal Control deems necessary.
Did you lose your hard copy of the post-operative instructions the clinic provides at the time of check out? Here they are.
