Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions/answers that we are frequently asked. If you have additional questions that aren't covered here, please feel free to give us a call at Los Osos Pet Hospital.

1. What are the hospital hours?
   Our hospital is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm. On Saturdays we are open from 9:00am until 2:00pm. The hospital is closed on Sunday.

2. Do I need to have an appointment?
    Yes, patients are seen by appointment.

3. What forms of payment do you accept?
     Cash, Check, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, and CareCredit.

4. Can I make payments?
    Payment is required at the time of service.  If a payment plan is something that you will need we would recommend filling out a CareCredit application for pet care financing.  Please let us know if we can assist you with your application prior to your appointment time.

5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
   Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure.  Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?
   This is a blood test that is run here in the hospital prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.

7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
   Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 10-14 days following the surgery.

8.  Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?
    No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

9.  Do you board pets?
   Yes, we do offer boarding to our clients. We have boarding space for both dogs and cats.  Current vaccinations are required for all boarding pets for their own safety and the safety of all our guests.

10.  What are your kennels like?
   Our dog kennels are all indoor. The dogs are walked 2 times daily while they are boarding. The cat boarders are housed in a separate area away from the dogs. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own.
