We will offer you an estimate for your dogs spay or neuter when you come in for an exam. Because it can vary due to the dogs weight, physical issues or conditions, the receptionist will not be able to give you an accurate estimate, however, she can give you a "general" idea of the total cost.
We require an IV Catheter ($15.00) for safety. It allows quick access to a vein, if needed, for fluids or emergency medications during surgery.
Your pet will feel better and heal more quickly! An injectable antibiotic and pain medication is given prior to surgery. For comfort and faster healing, we require pain medications to be taken home after surgery for a spay (neuter upon doctor recommendation).
Pre-Anesthetic bloodwork is highly suggested for all surgeries and REQUIRED if your pet is 6 years and older.
OPTIONAL service but highly recommended: Cold Laser Therapy. Reduces swelling, pain, inflammation, promotes faster healing. (additional charges will apply).
If your pet is in heat or pregnant, additional charges may apply.
We make it a point to schedule a limited number of surgeries on our surgery days but can usually get your pet into surgery within a month. For your pets' safety, we have a dedicated Recovery Nurse after surgery so your pet is never left alone until he/she is totally awake and recovered.
