Springbrook Animal Care Center - Walk In Appointments

The Springbrook Animal Care Center is located in Naperville, Illinois. They provide health care services for household pets, as well as grooming services, doggie day care, and boarding options. They have also helped to place more than ten thousand pets in loving homes since 2003.

“I like the ability of walk in appointments, and [a vet being] able to see me on short notice!” one Springbrook client said. “Friendly staff, discount for first visits, professional staff, Internet option for medical records and appointments to keep everything organized. Great hours as well! I will recommend and be back!”
“I loved the experience!” said another client. “Quick and efficient and caring for both me and Cooper!”

The professionals at the Springbrook Animal Care Center are concerned about animal overpopulation, because it leads to millions of homeless animals and needless suffering. They recommend that new puppy and kitten owners spay or neuter their new pets when they are between four and six months of age. This will not only help to control animal overpopulation, but optimize health benefits and help them avoid serious medical problems. They remind everyone that spaying or neutering has no negative affect on a pet’s personality, guarding instincts, intelligence, playfulness, affection, or weight.

It is a tragic fact that many homeless pets meet unhappy ends. Many of them end up in animal shelters, and if they are not adopted within a few months face the very real prospect of being euthanized. About 2.4 million healthy and adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized every year in animal shelters in the United States. There are two main factors contributing to pet overpopulation: allowing dogs and cats to reproduce even when there isn’t much chance their offspring will find homes, and pets being given up by owners who can no longer keep their pets, or who don’t want them anymore.

That first factor can be dealt with by spaying or neutering. Spaying or neutering is a proven way of reducing animal overpopulation, and making sure that all pets are wanted and have families to love them.
The staff at Springbrook Animal Care Center make spaying or neutering a pet as convenient as possible. After making an appointment for the procedure, owners can drop off their pet between seven and nine o’clock in the morning. After a complete physical exam that includes a pre-operative blood screening and an electrocardiogram, the sterilization procedure is performed using the latest surgical techniques and equipment. Each pet is carefully monitored during the procedure and afterward. Neutered pets are usually discharged the same day, while spayed pets are held overnight.
