FCCO Spay/Neuter Clinics

Click for a schedule of upcoming clinics.

FCCO has two medical facilities. Our free-standing clinic opened in the fall of 2008 in Portland. In addition to an anesthesia room and prep area, it has a surgery suite with four surgery tables, allowing us to have an additional doctor performing spays and thereby increasing our efficiency. Our mobile clinic is fully-equipped with an anesthesia room, prep area, and three operating stations and travels to cities outside of Portland. Both clinics follow the same procedures and offer the same services.

anesthesia Cats awaiting surgery are transported to the anesthesia room, the rear door of the mobile hospital, 4-5 at a time. Once anesthetized, each cat receives a pain relief injection and is passed to the prep area. anesthesia
Prep In the prep area, cats are prepped for surgery and male cats are neutered. prep1
