I have used this clinic before and am very happy with them! They were the one I used when my male had to have his tail amputated. They were great to him/me and even gave us some meds free. They were really concerned abouthim and all I had to pay for was the first visit & surgery (under $100) and though we had to return 5 times there was no additional charge.
Anyway, they go in at 7 a.m. and we pick them up between 5:30-6:00.
I know, it can be expensive to get enough carriers. What I did was ask everyone I knew who had a cat if I could borrow their carrier and that worked out really well. The cardboard ones would work well too.
In my case, not sure how your clinic works, they had to be in separate carriers because that is where they stay while they are waiting to be taken in to surgery and then afterwards for recovery. And then, like I said, they are so disoriented afterwards that they could hurt each other...and with stitches...not a good thing, kwim? And then after we got home, it was good that they could stay confined in them because you really don't want them jumping around right away. Not really much of a problem for momma cat, but the kittens just didn't get the idea that they should probably just relax, LOL.
The time frame sounds similar to what our was, drop off early morning and then late afternoon/early evening pick up. I will be taking our 'latest' stray cat on the 29th for his neuter...wasn't expecting another family member but LOL, sometimes they find you! At least it will only be one this time, LOL.
It sounds like you have a great clinic, that is so awesome. It makes all the difference in the world to know your babies are in good, loving hands.
