Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
At College Manor Veterinary Hospital, we recommend every pet has their ovariohysterectomy (spay) or orchidectomy (neuter) procedure done as soon as it is deemed appropriate by the veterinarian. Typically, we recommend spaying or neutering your cat at 6 months of age. One of our wonderful veterinarians would love to meet you and your feline friend and discuss this VERY important procedure in greater detail at your convenience. Please feel free to call us at 905-853-4706 to schedule a consult today.
Spaying or neutering your pet can help to prevent your best friend from having to go through otherwise unnecessary medical illnesses such as breast, or testicular cancers, prostate disease and unwanted pregnancies.
When should I neuter/spay my cat?
Here at College Manor Veterinary Hospital we recommend spaying or neutering your cat at about 6 months of age. There are of course “exceptions to every rule” and certainly, any issues or concerns you may have about the timeline can be addressed anytime during your puppy or kitten series of boosters.
What is the procedure to spay/neuter a cat?
When we neuter a male cat we remove both of his testicles. Likewise, when we spay a female cat we remove both her ovaries and her uterus. This procedure prevents both male and female cats from being able to reproduce. If you’d like more information on the procedure itself, the anesthetic or pain medications we use, recovery times etc., please call the clinic directly at (905) 853-4706.
Do you know the most common disease in dogs and cats? It is not liver or kidney disease, or even thyroid disease. It is dental disease! Did you know that dental disease affects over 80% of dogs over the age of 3 years, and between 50-90% of cats over 4 years?
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 905.853.4706. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Note: Due to the continued health precautions recommended by Health Canada, we have elected to discontinue 'in clinic' pick-ups for items ordered via our Online Store including both medications and food with immediate effect. The delivery option is extremely flexible and they will deliver wherever you choose.
