Low Cost Spay & Neuter

Our low-cost spay/neuter program is provided as a service to the community to help alleviate the pet overpopulation problem, and to be sure all pet owners have an affordable spay and neuter option.  These procedures are part of our Premier Pet Wellness Program and are priced to provide a significant value as compared to the cost of other surgeries. This page has been prepared to ensure participants understand how the program works and what is included so there are no misunderstandings.

We are a full service for-profit animal hospital.  Our hospital does not receive any grants or outside financing to perform these procedures at these low fees.  We use the same proven techniques used in other High Volume High Quality spay neuter programs around the nation.  Unlike non-profit spay neuter clinics we can provide a wider range of services that your pet may need at the same time at the spay or neuter procedures, and prepared to perform the procedures on cases that may involve a little more risk. Our doctors will also be available for follow up care and in the event of a surgical complication.


It's the best of both worlds.  The affordability of a non-profit spay and neuter clinic with the support of a full service veterinary hospital in the event of unexpected complications.

Senior Spay and Neuter

Senior pets typically have more health concerns.  For that reason we recommend additional precautions when performing spay and neuter procedures on pets older than 5 years of age.  Your pets age should not be a concern though, pets of any age can be spayed and neutered. It's always better late than never. 

Our recommended additional services include:

  1. Pre-surgical Blood Screening (fees apply): Older pets are more likely to have compromised organ function.  For that reason we recommend a blood panel be performed to check the health of the internal organs such as the liver and kidney.  This test will also screen for disease such as Cushing's disease, and diabetes. 
  2. IV Catherter Placement (fees apply): Because of their slight increase risk under anesthesia we recommend placement of a IV catheter during the procedure. 
  3. Senior Pre-medications and Anesthesia (fees apply): We have several anesthetic protocols we use on a regular basis. Again because of their age we recommend the use of a special protocol for senior pets.  
  4. There is an additional $45 fee added to the spay and neuter fee for pets over 5 years old.  This fee offsets the additional time, and supplies needed to safely spay older pets.  

We highly recommend that a physical exam (fees apply) be performed prior to scheduling your senior pet for surgery. During that exam the doctor will talk with you about any found health concerns and provide you with a full treatment plan and cost for your pets surgery.  

NOTE:  Despite our best efforts, occasionally a pet will open the incisions or infect the incisions.  This is nearly always due to excessive licking, chewing, or jumping.  Surgical complications are ALWAYS POSSIBLE with any procedure.  Please return your pet anytime you are concerned about complications.  Post-op rechecks are performed at no charge, but the client is responsible for any and all drugs and materials needed to treat the pet as a result of any complications occurring after surgery.
