Did you know that millions of dogs & cats are killed at shelters every year? Too many pets end up in animal shelters and face being put down without a home.
You can make a difference. Spay or neuter your pets to prevent unwanted pregnancies and even reduce the risk of some disorders and cancers. On top of the benefits to your pet, many cities also require or encourage spaying or neutering.
We provide low cost spays/neuters for dogs & cats of all sizes. Although we don’t require your pet to be a certain age, we recommend waiting until your dog has finished growing. Pets must also have all their vaccinations.
If dogs are spayed or neutered too early, sometimes it can cause growth issues. We recommend using the following chart to make the best decision on when to spay or neuter your pet:
Smaller-size breeds (terriers, chihuahuas, etc) – 6 to 7 months
Medium-size breeds (collies, boxers, etc) – 8 to 9 months
Large-size breeds (german shepherds, golden retrievers) – 10 months to a year
Largest size breeds (great danes, bernards) – Over a year
What to Expect with Low Cost Pet Vet
When you first bring in your pet for surgery, we will start with a pre-anesthetic physical exam. This won’t cost any extra, but is important for us to make sure your pet will be able to handle the surgery and there won’t be any complications.*
During the surgery, we will put your pet under gas anesthesia following state of the art anesthesia protocols. We provide external heat support, an oxygen generator, pre-/intra-/and post-operative analgesics, individual monitoring by surgical nurses with advanced equipment which includes respiratory monitors, EKG, pulse oximetry and core body temperature.
We don’t charge any extra for any of these services, they come with the spay/neuter price as we consider them all essential for the best care of your pet.
After the surgery, we monitor each pet individually while they recover from the anesthesia.
We take any type of surgery very seriously and always provide the best in quality care for each pet that comes through our doors!
Your Pet’s Low Cost Spay/Neuter Recovery
Once your pet has recovered from the anesthesia and is acting normally, we send them back with their owners. We provide pain medication and antibiotics at no extra charge to make your pet’s recovery as fast, safe, and painless as possible.
Make sure to limit your pet’s activity and monitor them during the next few days as they recover fully. It’s important that they don’t tear their stitches out. In some cases, we may provide a cone to help if your pet is trying to reach or itch at their stitches.
Your pet should be eating, drinking, and behaving normally 24 hours after surgery. If you have any questions or concerns, call us up!
*If your pet is over 8 years old, is pregnant, in heat, or has medical issues, we may charge extra fees due to the extra risk and caution that we need to take with your pet.
