COVID-19 Updates: as of May 2021
At Valley Veterinary Hospital and Cascade East Animal Clinic, we are committed to providing a safe environment for you, your pet, and our team members during the COVID-19(coronavirus) pandemic.
There is currently no evidence that pets become sick from COVID-19, nor that they can transmit it to other animals.
We have implemented additional cleaning and sanitizing procedures at our hospitals.
We ask our clients to follow these guidelines:
1. We are currently using curbside check-in service until further notice. When you arrive, you will see a phone number and parking spot number to call in (please NO texts) to notify us you have arrived. (Please be patient, our 3 receptionists are working as efficiently as possible to answer phones and assist other clients.)
2. We have limited lobby capacity of 4 people to maintain social distancing. We attempt to give priority to clients who have circumstances that necessitate lobby use. We ask that you please wait for a staff member to invite you in to the lobby and wear a mask inside our building.
3. We currently are unable to allow owners in exam rooms with their pets.
4. If you are sick, have a fever or a cough, please communicate with us by phone, and kindly do not enter our facility. We can discuss options for getting your pet seen.
Thank you for your patience during this time; we are doing our best to promote a safe environment for our clients and staff. We want to provide the best patient care possible and make your experience here as comfortable as possible. We look forward to being able to ease these guidelines when it is deemed safe to do so.

4. Can I make payments?
Payment is required at the time of service. We offer Care Credit for payment plans; the application process can be completed online or by phone in minutes. The plans include no interest and extended payment plans, and the card is accepted by many other healthcare professionals.
5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 4-6 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. We recommend that vaccinations be current at the time of surgery. 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 clinic 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?
Our spay and neuter procedures do not require suture removal; sutures are buried and dissolve on their own.
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 and what are your kennels like?
Yes, please see the boarding tab on home page.
