Neutering / Vaccinations / Office Visits
Amount: $523.00
Posted by: dbehling in Discovery Bay, CA.Posted: April 15th, 2011 10:04AM
Treatment: 1 year of serviceBreed: Poodle (miniature)
Vet: Banfield / PetSmart Antioch
We called around the area, the cheapest was the county animal control, but they were booked until July (it's now mid-April), called the vet down the street from where we live, Vaccinations series start at $166 for 1st visit and 2 more are needed, worming was included, but kennel cough/lyme disease was not, surgery would start at $422. Stopped by PetSmart for food/treats/etc and spoke with one of the vet techs and found out about their Puppy plan, met the vet and so far we are very happy, surgery will be at 16-weeks with rabies and chipping (chipping will cost approx $20 with discount). Since we have 30-days from the rabies vaccination and most of the vets we called wanted to wait until after that it would cost double for the dog license. Banfield is just a couple blocks from where I work and they will schedule the surgery so I can drop the dog off in the morning before work and pick him up in the evening. Will post again after surgery.

Puppy Neutering
Amount: $480.00
Posted by: KNS15 in Catoosa, OK.Posted: January 25th, 2011 09:01AM
Treatment: NeuteringBreed: Mixed
Vet: Catoosa Small Animal Clinic
I paid $480 to have both of my 6 month old puppies neutured while I boarded them for a week when I was on vacation. I did not do the pre-surgery screening b/c at their age the vet didn't anticipate any complications. I did have them include pain medication for after the surgery. Here is a total break down of the bill...
Boarding = $252 (7 nights for each dog at $18/night)
Surgery = $140($70/dog-this included general and a local anesthesia)
Pain meds = $60($30/dog)
Bath/nails/anal glands = $28 ($14/dog)
The neutered them the day after I dropped them off and it worked out perfectly. They were confined so there wasn't any risk of pulling the incisions and they were able to control their pain. The incisions looked so good after the 10 days that I took them out myself.

My vet wants $850 to neuter my 21 lb. puppy. Think this is very high. I already spent over $500.00 in the month I have him with 3 visits to this vet. I think I need to search around.

friends of animals certification and Hudson Valley vets
Amount: $410.00
Posted by: asiunia553 in Harriman, NY.Posted: December 7th, 2010 10:12AM
The Friends of Animals Certification came out to be more expensive way than any other. Veterinarians in Rockland and Orange County NY charge extra about 300+ for the additional charges. However, most of them (such as Cental Valley, NY) will not even accept your dog if you are not their customer. The best is Benfield- nothing can compare to them

Treatment: SpayedBreed: German shepherd mix
Vet: Dr. Sek
Got my 8 month old German shepherd/husky mix spayed here in Thailand where we live. I was surprised at how much it cost considering most vet work here is much cheaper than the states but we did take her to the top of the line Animal Teaching Hospital in town so that's probably why. this cost did include her anesthesia, bloodwork, e-collar, medicine and everything so really it's not too bad.

spaying
Amount: $400.00
Posted by: maisey in syracuse, NY.Posted: November 5th, 2010 04:11PM
Treatment: spayingBreed: pomeranian
I have a new vet and she wants to charge $400 for a 5lb adult pomeranian. This includes the pain medicine and checking the kidneys and small exam, but if I go somewhere else I can get her spayed for $150 and add the medicine and physical and it is still cheaper! Shop around! How can people tell you to spay your pet when it is sooooo exspensive! Not everyone can afford this cost!!! This is one reason why people do not spay or neuter thier pet

10 mo old, 55 pound
Amount: $621.00
Posted by: Sierra in San Clemente, CA.Posted: September 23rd, 2010 11:09AM
Treatment: SpayBreed: Australian Shephard Mix
Vet: San Clemente, CA
This cost is extremely high; however, it did include her surgery, pre op blood work, extra pain meds, "manicure", micro-chipping, bordetella vaccine. The doctor also cleaned her top teeth and removed all tartar buildup for free. Prices vary all over our area, but this is a good vet and I'm very comfortable with them. She is my baby so I am certainly willing to pay for quality service and her comfort.

Spay Dog
Amount: $85.00
Posted by: Shuggy in St Pete, FL.Posted: September 22nd, 2010 06:09PM
Treatment: SpayBreed: Pitt Bull
Vet: Banfield-Petsmart
Our dog is on one of the Banfield pet care plans, $25 a month for puppies. This plan covers spaying, so we paid $85 for I believe an injection, anti-inflammatory medication, and pain medication. She went in the morning and was released late afternoon. She is recovering extremely well, she was sewn up nicely. Supposedly their normal fee is around $300, which I now believe given the postings I'm seeing.

6 mo. old 40 lb Dog
Amount: $435.00
Posted by: a user in Charleston, SC.Posted: July 14th, 2010 10:07AM
Treatment: SpayBreed: Boxer
Vet: Charles Towne
It was a lot of money and there are places around here that will do it for under $100 but I wanted my puppy to go to her vet. She's been seeing them since 8 weeks old and will continue to see them unless we move. They also did the pre op blood work, overnight stay, extra pain meds, and a post op check-up. Prices may very so you just have to go with what level of service you are comfortable with you pet getting and the price you are comfortable paying.

Vet: Dr.Pal Strongsville,OH
They quoted me 407.00 to spay my 4.5 lb puppy. They couldn't give me that price when I called they had to have a tech call me after they "put it together" It includes everything but really???? I shopped around and found the same deal for 186.00 at a better vet. My advice shop & ask questions. I heard some vets are running your credit and charging as per your score.

Treatment: Breed: chihuahua dogs
I wonder how many people did what I did-combine the annual exam with the spay/neuter. This made the bill quite high, but I only paid for "one" office visit fee and "one" focused exam fee. Ask about the extras, and for a bottom-line cost amount beforehand, not just the cost of the procedure itself.

I had my 9 month old pup spayed and dew claws removed. She was also in heat when I took her in so it cost a little more. Very pleased with this facility. If you live in North Mississippi or South Memphis, I highly recommend this group for their care and professionalism.

Treatment: Dog spayBreed: any
Vet: a decent one
A spay is MAJOR abdominal surgery. Would you like to go thru that and wake up from anesthesia without any pain medication? Or go home without any pain meds after your testicles were cut out of you? Seriously people, that's where these vets are cutting corners when charging less than $200 to spay a dog. Or they are not sterilizing their instruments after each use. Or they are not paying their professional staff a living wage. Nor using anesthetic monitoring equipment. Shame on you.

Treatment: Spay/last set of shotsBreed: German Shorthair/Lab
Vet: Feiring Vet Clinic
Our vet makes her money with large animals (horses, cattle, etc.) so her prices are reasonable for the family pets. And she is no bs type of person. She tells it like it is. I am glad we found her and will continue to use her for all of our family pets (even if it means driving way out of our way to get to her!)

Kitten
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: Heathabee in Port St. Lucie, FL.Posted: May 22nd, 2010 03:05PM
Treatment: NeuterBreed: DSH
Vet: Banfield
Banfield (found in PetSmart) has kitten and puppy plans which include the cost of spaying/neutering. You pay monthly and its like $20 a month. This also includes free vet visits, all vaccines, etc. The vets are amazing and the staff is genuinely nice. It costs like $60 to sign up and then its just a monthly fee and you can go to the vet for free when ever you want. All services that aren't included are discounted so like antibiotics and any other medication is really cheap.

Highly Recommend!

I had my dog neutered yesterday. I was unsure at first, as I recently found out he is heartworm positive, but the vet did an excellent job. They assured me he was fine and I'm glad I went through with it. Also, it was affordable, and came with a free rabies shot.

Neuter Catahoula Puppy in N. Florida/S. Georgia
Amount: $160.00

Treatment: NeuterBreed: Catahoula
Vet: Betz Vet Clinic
Betz Vet Clinic offers a mobile vet service which I opted for because they were closer than any other vet that would accept the voucher I recieved from the humane society. The Vet and Techs were very nice and awesome with my dog. For the 160 I had him neutered, his rear dew claws removed and his rabies shot. This included all his medication both for the surgery and after. All I can say is that he is doing fine and the service was great. It is now 1 day after surgery and to see him you couldn't tell he had anything done. If you are in S.Georgia/N. Florida I highly encourage you to give them a call.
