Due to COVID, Pets Alive is taking multiple safety precautions to protect our staff, patients and clients while continuing to provide high quality services. We have implemented more frequent cleaning of high traffic areas including the front desk and doorknobs. Electronic submission of paperwork helps to minimize contact and we are limiting the number of people inside the clinic at one time. No public restrooms are available. You’ll find multiple hand sanitizing stations, a socially distant lobby layout and plexiglass across our front desk. Masks are welcomed and encouraged; if you’d like a mask when you arrive let a staff member know. We are making every effort to keep Pets Alive’s doors open. Thank you for doing your part!
Request an Appointment
Please Review Before Continuing
By submitting an appointment request through the form below, we cannot guarantee an appointment for the time/day requested. We will contact you via email or phone confirming your appointment or to schedule a new time if there is a conflict. Please watch for a confirmation email.
Consent forms will be emailed once your appointment is confirmed for both surgery and wellness. These forms must be signed electronically and sent back to the clinic. You will be prompted throughout the form, once the form is completed a box that reads “send to clinic” will appear in green at the top right corner of the form. When this box is clicked you will receive an emailed copy of your signed form and we will receive it at the clinic. This will eliminate the need to complete forms in the lobby and speed up your check in the day of your appointment.
Paper certificate of current rabies vaccination is required at time of drop off, or there will be an additional $20 fee for vaccination with surgery. Rabies vaccine is required by Indiana state law.
Pets Alive will not check for possible pregnancy prior to spay. If your pet has been outside unattended or lives with intact males, there may be a chance of pregnancy that we cannot predict. If you already know or suspect your pet is pregnant, we can still proceed with the spay. Please be aware that the spay will terminate any pregnancy, at an additional cost of $40.
Occasionally, there may be additional charges depending on each animal’s individual needs and circumstances. Please understand that we will automatically do what is medically necessary to keep each animal healthy and safe during surgery.
Common examples of additional treatment include:
- repairing open hernias ($20-100)
- termination of pregnancies ($15 for cats; $25-40 for dogs)
- cryptorchid/undescended testicle retrieval ($25 for a cat; $25-50 for a dog)
- Capstar ($6) – kills fleas so they do not get into the incision
- extra subcutaneous fluids ($5 for cats and $10 for dogs)
We require that all clients follow the pre- and post-operative instructions to ensure the health and safety of their cat or dog. We cannot be held responsible for complications resulting from client failure to follow these instructions. Please review the client instructions in full before requesting a surgery. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call prior to surgery at (812) 349-1349.
Pets Alive Recommends Fully Vaccinating Your Pet Before Surgery
We are a high-volume clinic, and while we keep everything as clean and sterile as possible, we cannot control for airborne viruses. Therefore, we recommend every animal be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to surgery. We cannot be held responsible for complications resulting from contagious diseases for which the animal was not properly vaccinated. We offer low-cost vaccinations at our Wellness Clinic.
For dogs, we recommend:
- $20 Distemper/Parvo
- $15 Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
- $10-25 Dewormer
For cats, we recommend:
- $15 FVRCP Feline 3-in-1 Combo
- $10-15 Dewormer
