Before we get to the cost of these procedures please take a minute to read the following.

Spaying and Neutering your pet can be the most invasive procedure your pet has in the early stages of his/her life. In order to make the best decision regarding this procedure ask the following question.
What is required for my pet to have surgery?
What precautions will be taken before performing this procedure on my pet?
What anesthesia will be used?
What precautions will be taken while my pet is under anesthesia?
Will my pet have pain management during and/or after surgery?
How long will my pet have to stay in the hospital after the surgery?
Will a veterinarian be available after hours if I have questions or concerns?

At Webb Animal Clinic we will schedule a surgery consultation with you and your pet to answer all of these questions. During the consultation our veterinarian will thoroughly examine your pet to ensure he/she is a good candidate for the procedure. The veterinarian will also check for umbilical and inguinal hernias, retained baby teeth, rear dewclaws and other issues that may need surgical correction. On the male dogs the veterinarian will make sure that both testicles have descended into the scrotum. Some dogs and cats will only have one testicle descended, this is called cryptorchidism. This condition will require a surgical incision into the abdomen to remove the other testicle. This is a more invasive procedure that will require additional surgery and cost so knowing ahead of time will benefit both the owner and the veterinarian.

A blood sample may also be taken from your pet during the surgery consultation for pre-anesthetic testing. Blood work prior to surgery will asses liver and kidney function, which are major organs involved in the processing of anesthetic drugs. This test will also help rule out infection, congenital liver and kidney disease, anemia, and blood clotting problems prior to surgery.

Spaying

Spaying is a surgical procedure in which both ovaries and uterus are completely removed from your female pet. Also called an “ovariohysterectomy”, the surgery is performed while your pet is under general anesthesia. There are many benefits to spaying your female companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, spaying will eliminate the sometimes “messy” heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Additionally, research has shown that pets that have been spayed live longer than pets that have not been spayed.

Neutering

Neutering refers to the surgical procedure in which both testicles are removed. There are many benefits to neutering your male companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, neutering can help eliminate undesirable and at times, embarrassing behavior in your male companion. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as prostate disease and testicular cancer.
