We reserve the right to refuse vaccination or surgery if an animal has severe health issues found on examination that make surgery or vaccination unsafe, if your animal’s behavior makes handling by staff dangerous, or if your dog’s weight exceeds 75 pounds. We may not be able to provide services for all of your animals on the same day.
