The Day Before Your Pet's Appointment: Please take your pet's food away after 10 pm the night before surgery. Your pet can still have free access to water. Puppies and kittens under 5 months old may eat up until 6 am the day of surgery.
Arrival: Please arrive on time for your appointment. Check in for cats is 7:30 am - 8:00 am. Check in for dogs is at 8:00 am. If you are late, we may need to reschedule your appointment. Plan to be at the clinic for around 10-15 minutes to complete the check-in process for your pet.
Check-in and check-out will take place at your car. Please remain in your car and we'll help you with the check-in process. If staff is not outside, please call 701-356-0523.
Forms: You'll be asked to fill out a short form with information about you and your pet when you arrive at PAAWS.
What do I need to bring? If your pet has had vaccinations, we will need to see proof from the veterinarian's office. Please have these with you as we are generally not able to call for records the day of surgery. If you adopted a pet from a shelter or rescue, please bring any paperwork you received so we know which vaccinations we need to administer.
If you are bringing a cat: Your cat must arrive in a carrier. If you do not have a carrier, you can purchase a cardboard carrier at PAAWS for $5. It is mandatory that a cat be contained securely in a carrier, no cats will be transferred in/out of the building without one.
If you are bringing a dog: Dogs must be on a leash or in a pet carrier. If you do not have a leash please let us know prior to bringing your dog into the building. We can lend you a leash to lead your pet safely from your car to the clinic.
Payment: Services must be paid for at the time you make your appoitment. Any services add the day of surgery must be paid for when you pick up your pet.
We accept cash, credit, debit or Scratchpay. Checks are not accepted.
Going Home: We will call you in the afternoon to go over post-operative instructions and give you an update on your pet. Please call when you arrive to pick up your pet and we will come to you or feel free to come inside the clinic. As a reminder, pets can be picked up any time between 3:30 and 4:45 PM. If your pet is not picked up by the time the clinic closes, a $50 boarding fee will be charged.
