Posted by: Rachel1919,com in Madison, FL.Posted: September 3rd, 2010 09:09PM
Breed: long haired whiteType of Procedure: spay + rabies shot
I made an appointment to get my 7 month old female cat spayed this week and it costs $92.00 for the spay procedure plus $10.00 for a mandatory rabies shot. So it comes out to $102.00. A male cat would cost about half that. The place is called Madison Veterinary Clinic and the vet is Dr. Lewis.

2 cats nuetered
Amount: $320.00
Posted by: pissed off in rochester in rochester, NY.Posted: June 10th, 2010 05:06PM
Breed: regular housecatsType of Procedure: nuetering
we were supposed to pay $20 a cat then when they got the cats apparently they HAD to do bloodwork before they cut anything and then one cat had earmites so that was another $25 for medicine and get this my vet then got mad cause it was what he called "flea season" and one of my cats had 5 fleas on him so he wanted me to buy flea meds. i asked how much they were and almost crapped my pants at the cost, why he got mad was because i told him i was gonna buy them elsewhere and i did and i got them WAY cheaper.

cat spay
Amount: $59.00
Posted by: Pris in Santa/ Fountain Valley, CA.Posted: May 18th, 2010 07:05AM
Breed: tabbyType of Procedure: spay
Because of my previous expensive experience, and the happy reasonable one after that--I say--shop around for spay and neuter services. A year and a half ago, I took a female kitty to a vet that I have been going to for six years. I didn't discuss price because it had been fairly reasonable in the past. The bill with shots came to $285.00. There was no mention of a pregnancy, etc.I was shocked by the bill, and vowed I'd find a much less expensive , but still caring place next time.
Last month, I took another cat to a different vet (after doing some vet shopping) to be spayed--she received the surgery, pain meds, Rabies shot ---all for $59.00. She could go home a few hours after the proceedure, recovered well at home. When shopping for spay and neuter services, call well known animal welfare organizations and see if you can't get better prices with good and caring vets.

CAT spay and neuter in Lake Co, CA
Amount: $40.00
Posted by: kabuky in Clearlake, CA.Posted: April 21st, 2010 04:04PM
Breed: Moggy (mutt cat)Type of Procedure: 1 spay; 2 neuter
I took 3 cats in to have spayed/neutered. I was quoted $40-$100 for the neuters - had one of the boys neutered at the SPCA for $40 and the other at the vet for $40 though 2 other vets wanted well over $100 for neuters. I was quoted spay cost as $100 & rabies shot ($16) with overnight stay at one vet's (the one who neutered my boy) while others quoted $152-$175 without rabies and same day take home.

I figure the one vet (Waddington) keeps her prices down at her cost to help with local feral cat population problems whereas the others don't care.
I have horses - one vet wanted $140 for meds even when I told them I knew the meds were $95 including shipping (as company had always previously shipped directly to me but I needed a new RX). Vet refused to let it go cheaper than $140 then charged me $42.50 for office visit and $16.50 just to write the prescription for the meds to buy directly for a 3 month supply. I let them know I would use another vet (a 50% markup on meds?!?!?) as I would not support their greed (Middletown Vet Clinic).

cat neuter
Amount: $300.00
Posted by: looking for a reasonable vet in near Raleigh, NC.Posted: April 15th, 2010 05:04AM
Breed: tabbyType of Procedure: neuter
The "necessary" exam was $130, which included the 3rd fecal flotation in 4 months. Still haven't figured that one out. The neuter was quoted $127-187, depending on pre-op bloodwork. I had my other cat Spayed for a total of $125 from the previous vet, who retired. it seems that vets use the guilt trip to encourage owners to get the extras. Now I know why people choose to ignore the neuter/spay campaign.

Cat Spay
Amount: $390.00
Posted by: Aubrey in Annapolis, MD.Posted: April 14th, 2010 07:04AM
Breed: Cat: Domestic ShorthairType of Procedure: Spay
This is the price from Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital in Annapolis, MD. They required pre-spay bloodwork at a cost of $95.00, then the actual procedure (including anesthesia and pain meds)cost another $285.00. This is a safe hospital with quality care, which is why I chose to take my cat there. However, I still have receipts from the same procedure for my other cat in 10/2006 and the total cost was under $200.00. Not sure why the price rose quite so steeply in that time.

Breed: mixedType of Procedure: spay
I expected to pay around $125 to $150 but was billed $254 by Liberty Animal Hospital.....and that doesn't include the pre-surgery blood work up which would have been an additional $80! I'm changing vets. I should have called before hand to price it.

Breed: Type of Procedure: neuter
I have two cats one of them I got neutered at a place called spay today which costed me $50.00 but this is in NC they have a website their might be more in other places. The other cat I took to the humane society and they brought him back to me that same day neutered and they had given them regular shots and rabies shots and all the certification saying he got them also a heartworm test if you sign off on it for just $30.00 I will be doing this again because that is cheap and it was good work that was done. So my advice if you dont have that much money is to go to your local humane society and see if they can help you spay or neuter your pet.

How Much Does Cat Spay or Neuter Cost
Amount: $235.00
Posted by: love my Siberian boys in Alexandria, VA.Posted: May 8th, 2009 07:05AM
Breed: Siberian catType of Procedure: neuter
I was just quoted $235 by the main animal hospital in Alexandria, VA. It is probably a little high because of the location, but this is a very reputable, full-service hospital who will do blood work-ups prior, and then have the cats monitored overnight by professional veterinary staff while they recover. Both cats are 7 months and weigh 9 and 10 pounds now, but that wasn't a factor in the price. Your prices must refer to shelters, vets who don't do blood work, or some place way out in the country where things are really cheap.
