Low Cost Clinics
These clinics may be ‘full service’ or may specialize in high volume spay and neuter. Even with specialized clinics they will often offer additional services such as vaccination, microchipping, nail trims etc. and some offer testing (heartworm, FIV/felv) and even dental cleanings.
Please note that there can be additional charges related to spay/neuter surgery for things such as “in heat” fees, pregnancy terminations, additional pain medication, protective e-collars, undescended testicles etc. Check the individual clinics’ websites or call for their hours of operation and a complete list of services and costs.
Also, individual clinics may have varying age and weight requirements. At the time of scheduling they will give you specific details such as when to withhold food prior to surgery, that cats MUST be transported in carriers, and other pertinent information.
Base rates range from $32-65 per male cat, $51-$75 per female cat, $64 -$110 for male dogs and $75-$140 for female dogs. Dogs in particular will depend on size.
