Pick-up Information for both Cats and Dogs:
You will receive a call when your animal is ready, and must be at the clinic to pick up your pet within an hour of that call.
It will be the same day, but we cannot give an exact time due to the fact that pick up will vary for each animal depending on what time they have surgery, and how fast each wakes up from anesthesia. **On fully scheduled days, pick up times can extend into the evening hours. We will not release an animal until we are confident they are ready to go home.
Please make sure you give us a valid phone number and are available for our call.
If you have a conflict/another appointment/ live more than 1 hour away-let us know we will do our best to accommodate you. However we cannot guarantee your animal will be ready by a specific time.
Thank you for contacting EPAA!
Do not leave animals in hot car even for a minute. Put a winter coat on and sit in your car. See how fast it gets deadly.
