Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I have to live in Canada or Ontario to access your services?
  •  No, you can live anywhere you want!  We are open to everyone.

2. Do I have to produce financials?
  • No, we are a self-funded clinic and are open to everyone, regardless of income.  We are partnered with Scratchpay, which allows for fast and easy payment plans which will have no affect on your credit rating.

3. Am I limited to the number of appointments I can book?
  • No, if you've got multiple animals we'll spay or neuter them all!   We have a maximum number of surgeries per day, but can usually accommodate multiple pets from the same household on the same day with advanced booking.

4. Where are you located?
  • We are located at 764 Old Highway 2, Trenton, ON.  Google map us!

5. What happens if my animal is actually a different gender than I thought?
  • No problem!  Sometimes owners or rescues don't actually know if their animal is a male or a female.  If you book a neuter surgery for a  male animal but you actually have a female animal (which requires a spay) we will contact you and we will do the correct surgery for your animal!  If there is a difference in price we will bill you for the extra cost or refund you for the difference.  No sex change operations here!

6. I can't afford the surgery, can I make payments?
  • No, you can't make payments to the clinic directly, but we have partnered with LendCare, a quick and easy payment system.

7. How and where do I send an e-transfer?
  • E-transfers are to be sent to

  • To send an e-transfer:

    • 1. log into your online or mobile banking app

    • 2. Navigate to the option to send money using interac e-transfer

    • 3. Select the account that you will be sending the funds from.

    • 4. Choose the recipient or add us (

    • 5. You shouldn't need a password as we have auto-deposit enabled

    • 6. Enter the amount you are going to send.

8. How do I pre-pay?
  • We will collect a $50 non refundable deposit from you (e-transfer) at the time of booking.  Your balance will be due before pick up the day of surgery. If you have pre-paid an appointment and have to cancel (with 24 hours notice), you can re-book for another time without penalty.  If you "no-show" or cancel your appointment a second time, you will forfeit your payment and it will be donated to a rescue.  No-showing or cancelling at the last minute does not change our expenses (staffing and supplies), so we will spay or neuter a rescue animal in your place.

9.  Why can't I pay with a credit card?
  • Credit and debit card companies charge the vendor a significant percentage of every sale.  Not accepting credit or debit cards helps us pass this savings onto our clients.  In order to keep our prices as low as possible, we have chosen to accept e-transfer and LendCare only.

10. Why are your prices different than full-service clinics?
  • Your regular veterinarian has a full-service clinic with a much larger overhead than we do.  When you only do one thing (spay and neuter) you don't need to have as much space, staff or equipment.  We only do surgery on young, healthy animals, so we are not dealing with sick pets who need a lot of extra care.  Any animal that is older or has medical complications will need to be spayed or neutered at their regular veterinary clinic.  This allows us to keep the prices lower, and we pass that on to the client.

11. Do I need to order a cone or a bodysuit?
  • Your pet will need some type of physical barrier to licking or chewing at the incision site.  There are multiple options, just pick one!  Most people are familiar with the plastic cone, but there are variations like an inflatable or soft collar.  You can use your own cone, or order one from us when you book your surgery.  Another option is a one-piece bodysuit.  These suits come in multiple sizes for both cats and dogs.  They are easy to put on and protect the incision.  You can order one from us when you book your surgery.  

12. How do I book an appointment?
  • Book with our online booking form, when you send your $50 non refundable deposit with your form you will get an email confirmation within 48 business hours. If no deposit accompanies your form, no appointment will be booked.

13. I don't know the gender of my animal.  Can you help?
  • You would be surprised how common this question is!  In young animals it can be hard to tell, so don't worry!  We can arrange a video call with you, hold your animal up to the camera and we can tell you what gender they are :)

14.  Why are spay surgeries more expensive than neuter surgeries?
  • Neuter surgeries (male cats and dogs) require less time than spay surgeries (female cats and dogs).  Neuters do not require an incision into the abdomen, they are more superficial, take less time and generally have fewer complications.  The price of surgery is determined by the length of time the surgeon requires and the amount of anesthetic the animal requires.


15.  Do you do vaccines and tick/flea treatments?
  • No, please see your regular veterinarian for all vaccines and other treatments. 

16.  Why is there a non-refundable deposit?
  •  A deposit holds your spot and covers our administrative fees.

17.   What if there is a difference between the information on the website or Facebook and what the clinic tells me over the phone?
  • The clinic is correct!  Although we try to keep the website and Facebook page up to date, sometimes there are changes that may happen in the clinic before this site is updated.  Always go by the information given to you by a real human in the clinic!

18.  Do you take feral cats or rescues?
  • Yes!  We deal with multiple rescues and we are happy to welcome more!  Our Rescue Coordinator is Barbara Bacon.  Please contact the clinic directly and speak to Barb.  We also take individual feral cats, just let us know at the time of booking.
