Spay/Neuter Discount Includes Pre-Anesthetic Bloodwork for Your Pet’s Safety

Apr 6, 2015 @ 02:45 PM — by Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital

If you have a puppy or kitten that has not been spayed or neutered, we urge you to do so. Female dogs and cats who are spayed have a decreased risk of mammary tumors (breast cancer) and a reduced possibility of serious or life-threatening uterine infections. Spaying eliminates the inconvenience of your pet’s estrus cycle, and it prevents unplanned mating. Male dogs and cats who are castrated have a decreased risk of prostatic enlargement, perineal hernias, perianal adenomas, and testicular tumors. Castration can reduce aggressive behavior, territorial marking, and wandering, and also helps prevent unplanned mating.

We want to help you offer the best medical care for your pet. Our discounted rate includes:

  • Pre-anesthetic blood work to avoid any obvious health problems that might need attention before your pet undergoes anesthesia and surgery
  • Anesthesia 
  • Ovariohysterectomy (females) or Castration (males)
  • Laser Technology for faster recovery and less pain, bleeding and swelling
  • Heart rate, oxygen, respiratory and temperature monitoring equipment
  • Body temperature control equipment
  • Private recovery technician for each patient so your pet wakes up to a caring, skilled friend
  • IV fluids to flush the kidneys of any residual anesthesia 
  • Antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection
  • Pain medication during surgery and at home for your pet’s comfort

Fees for these services are as follows, and are due in full when blood is drawn for pre-ops before your pet’s surgery:

Dogs:

Canine Castration (male) - $599*             

Canine Spay (female) - $699*

Cats:

Feline Castration (male) - $299*                

Feline Spay (female) - $499*

*If your pet is not current for all vaccinations, or has not had a Heartworm Test and Fecal Analysis, there are additional fees for these services and products. We recommend that you microchip your pet at the time of surgery, but this is optional for an additional fee of $52.50, which includes the registration fee. A Medical Care Plan will be provided which will authorize all services performed and will include an estimate of fees.
