Post-op spay/neuter concerns:

Please reference the handout contained in your adoption packet for more thorough information about symptoms, treatment, and seeking medical care for your animal. The following applies only to animals who had a spay/neuter surgery prior to adoption via the Humane Rescue Alliance.

In most cases, post-op complications are not an emergency and can wait until the next business day to be checked. Depending on the day of the week on which you observe symptoms, please consult the below details to determine who you should contact to schedule an appointment.

Note: HRA will not treat non-surgical related health issues. Surgery and the associated stress can strain the immune system and cause manifestation of pre-existing problems and/or development of infectious diseases. In these cases, please visit your personal veterinarian. HRA is not liable for costs incurred at an outside veterinary practice.

A staff member will be in touch with you within 24 hours of your inquiry. The location of your animal's re-check is dependent on vet availability, and staff will assist you in scheduling your appointment accordingly.

If you feel your pet needs urgent medical attention outside of normal business hours, you must take him or her to a veterinarian or (especially in cases of bleeding, fever, or extreme lethargy), to an animal emergency clinic. HRA is not liable for costs incurred at an outside veterinary practice.

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding your animal’s surgery, please call the Humane Rescue Alliance Medical Center, at 202-723-5730 (Monday thru Friday only).
