Drop-off is between 8:00 am - 9:00 am. We ask that you do not feed your pet past 8 pm the night before an anesthetic procedure. You will receive a call the day prior to the procedure confirming your appointment and policy. If you drop off your pet and they have eaten, there is a chance that the surgery will need to be moved to another day for your pet's well being. Please bring your signed estimate to give the receptionist at the time of drop-off.
Lab services are sent out to a reference lab. Lab work is done by appointment only. Clients can call for routine lab work results within 48 hours following submission. Some lab tests do take longer to receive based on lab turn around time. If you have a special lab test that does take longer, our staff will indicate when you can call for results.

Your referring or previous veterinary office can fax or email records directly to our receptionist at 919-859-5615 or email@example.com.
