Control Unleashed

Training Class Spotlight:

Does your dog fixate on squirrels, become distracted when they see people or other dogs, or simply have a hard time focusing when outside? Then Control Unleashed is for YOU!  In this 6 week class your dog will learn to focus in the face of distractions, and you’ll learn how to guide them toward better choices. Winter in Colorado is best enjoyed outside -- wouldn’t it be more fun with a focused friend beside you?

1 session: Saturday, November 29 at 2:00 p.m.

Spay/Neuter Assistance for Low-Income Families
The veterinary clinic offers the SHARE Program, which provides discounts on medical care (including spay/neuter surgeries) to clients who qualify as low income. In this way, we can ensure that companion animals receive proper medical care and remain in their homes with their guardians. This program is limited to families living in Boulder or Broomfield counties. Qualifying patients must be spayed or neutered to receive discounted services. To see if you qualify for the SHARE program, bring proof of residence and income to our veterinary clinic during regular business hours.

Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Release Program
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley offers a Trap-Neuter-Release package for feral felines.   $50

The package includes spay or neuter surgery, a spay incision line tattoo, an FeLV/FIV test and Rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. In addition to the sterilization surgery, one ear is tipped (notched horizontally) while the animal is under anesthesia. The ear is tipped to help easily identify those altered feral animals at a distance, so that they do not need to be anesthetized again in the future in order to determine if a spay/neuter has been performed.

Feral cats must be inside a secure trap upon arrival to the clinic for surgery. Clients should bring a cat carrier to transport the cat home. Clients should consider providing a safe indoor location (such as a garage) for the cat to stay in for one night following surgery.
