  • dogs aged 7 years or older who weigh more than 25 pounds; NOTE: dogs age 7 years or older who weigh 25 pounds or less require a CBC blood test at least three days before surgery

We suggest you contact a full service veterinary practice if you have an animal that falls into the categories above.

Surgery includes pre-op exam, pain control injection, take-home pain medication, Elizabethan collar and medical waste fee. Feral cats ONLY also receive a rabies and distemper vaccine, if needed.

To qualify for the community/feral cat price, cats are not socialized and are part of a trap-neuter-release (TNR) effort. The cat will be ear-tipped during surgery. Community/feral cats do not receive take-home pain medication or Elizabethan collar.
