At Cabarrus Spay Neuter Clinic, we get a ton of interesting questions from pet parents. Below are some common FAQs that might help answer any questions or concerns. Please feel free to call us at 704-784-6304 for any other concerns you might have about your pet.

My appointment is booked! What do I do before surgery?

No food after midnight the night before surgery, but water is okay! Please continue your pet’s necessary medications and notify us at check-in. Drop-off is at 7 am, and please bring your vaccine records with you. Pick-up is the same day at 2 pm.

Where do I park?

Parking availability is tough! Our parking lot is around the back (accessible by one-way Wensil St. off Douglas Ave.). There is also street parking on Douglas Ave. Please do not park in our neighbor’s parking lot.

Will there be a line at drop-off?

Yes, but it moves quickly. You are welcome to wait in your car until the line thins down, especially if your pet prefers not to be around other pets.

Do you accept CareCredit?

No. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

Will there be a Credit Card transaction fee?

Yes, the credit card merchant charges a 3% credit card processing fee for any transaction. If this isn’t doable, we also accept cash with no fee.

How old does my pet need to be to have surgery?

Dogs and cats must be 16 weeks old (and eligible to receive their rabies shot) for surgery.

Are there breed restrictions?

Unfortunately, we do not see Great Danes at our clinic due to the size restrictions of our cages/kennels. We accept all other cat and dog breeds.

What core vaccines are required for surgery?

Dogs are required to be current on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella. Cats are required to be current on Rabies and FVRCP. If your pet is not current, we CAN do vaccines at the time of surgery.

Do you offer wellness services / vaccine appointments without surgery?

Unfortunately, no. But all wellness services are available at the time of a spay/neuter surgery, specialty surgery, or dental cleaning appointment.

Will my pet need a cone after surgery?

We recommend your pet gets a cone, aka “E-collar,” after surgery to help prevent incision complications. We offer a variety of plastic cones to inflatable ones, ranging from $5-$30 depending on the size and type of cone.

Do I need an appointment for a feral cats?
No, you can bring feral cats (1 cat per trap and up to 2 feral cats per owner per day) with no appointment. Drop-off at 7 am. They will receive their rabies shot and ear tipping as part of the feral price package. If you have several feral cats and want to bring more than 2 per day, please call us at 704-784-6304 for scheduling.
Do ferals need to be in traps?
Yes, we would greatly appreciate it if ferals came in traps, 1 cat per trap. This is for our safety and for the safety of the cat. There will be a $10 carrier fee added on to any feral cat not brought in a feral cat trap.
Do you do dental extractions during dental cleanings?

We can, yes. We will evaluate the condition of your pet’s dental disease and determine if extractions are necessary, whether we can complete them at our facility, or whether to refer you to a veterinary dental specialist for x-rays and further evaluation.

What is the age requirement for dental cleanings?

Dogs and cats should be 8 yrs and younger. We can perform dental cleanings on older pets if they have seen their primary vet recently and are current on bloodwork. We want to make sure all animals are healthy enough to undergo anesthesia.
