22 week, 16 lb mini Aussie
Amount: $601.00
Posted by: JSL in Zionsville, IN.Posted: January 27th, 2013 03:01PM
Treatment: spay and microchipBreed: minature Australian shepherd
Vet: Zionsville Animal Hospital
I was a little shocked by the high price I paid, but my dog is very comfortable with my vet and the care and staff are outstanding. The procedure included the surgery, pre-op blood work, pain meds, nail trim, micro-chipping and any necessary follow-up visits (in my case only 1). The vet corrected a previously overlooked umbilical hernia at no extra charge. I paid $75 beyond the base price for laser surgery. This shortens healing time and means there were no stitches to remove. I called around and a similar procedure at a nearby hospital was $350 (no laser). I asked my vet to explain the higher price and he showed me the laser, heated surgical platform and heated recovery cages that other hospitals don't offer. They also used sevoflurane for the anesthetic which allows shorter recovery time than the isoflurane used by most vets.

Neuter of large shepherd
Amount: $825.00
Posted by: Shepherd Lover in Fredericksburg, VA.Posted: December 12th, 2012 02:12PM
Treatment: NeuterBreed: German Shepherd/Belgian Mali Mix
Vet: VCA Gordon Rd., Fredericksburg VA
I received the estimate via email from my vet. They had mentioned $400 prior to the estimate. The estimate in July was $520. The dog is about 125 lb., 24 months old, healthy, active. IN COMPLETE SHOCK. Scheduled for Monday. Belgian Malinois's are very sensitive to anesthesia and it is reported they have to be watch closesly with surgeries.... could this be why? It includes blood work prior to the surgery. I should hope so.

My 16 week old, 19 pound, German Shepherd mix puppy is going in for her spay procedure tomorrow. I was quoted $370 to include spay, heart monitoring, anesthesia, pain meds and overnight stay. If the price I pay tomorrow is different than what I was quoted, I'll repost.

8month old 19lb Jack Russell Neutered, Microchipped, & Vaccine
Amount: $142.00
Posted by: Mz_D in Las Vegas, NV.Posted: May 18th, 2012 11:05AM
Treatment: NeuturedBreed: Jack Russell Terrier
Vet: West Charleston Animal Clinic
My 8 month old Jack Russell Terrier was neutered ($75), microchipped ($32), had bordetella vaccine ($10), teeth brushed ($15), and nails trimmed ($10) at my Las Vegas vet of 6yrs. The blood work was done a couple months ago at $150 when we first took him in for an upset tummy for something he accidently ate, so that saved us on the cost of having his bloodwork done again for the neuturing procedure. Still an excellent price for the entire list compared to what Petsmart wanted to charge originally just for neuter only $250! I love my vet :o)!!!

Neutering Cost for 3-year old Irish Wolfhound (160 lbs)
Amount: $2,377.00
Posted by: Teacher in Yardley, PA in Yardley, PA.Posted: May 17th, 2012 06:05PM
Treatment: Castration & Scrotal ablationBreed: Irish Wolfhound
Vet: Dr. David Puerto & Dr. Andrea Caniglia
Obviously I spent way more than anyone on this procedure. Due to the sensitive nature of the breed with anesthesia, I wanted a certified anesthesiologist in addition to the surgeon. They removed the one descended testicle, found and removed the remnants of the undescended testicle, and removed the scrotum. They let me stay with my dog after being admitted, up until the surgery, and then with him during the recovery. He was released that evening, 13 hours after being admitted. I have only good things to say about how my dog and I were treated. But obviously I spent way more than I could have. The clinic, CARES in Langhorn, PA, is known to be very expensive, but very good. I went for very good. Price included pre-surgery consultation, blood work, take-home pain meds and antibiotics, and a BiteNot collar.

Spay cost for 75 lb Pitt
Amount: $110.00

Treatment: SpayBreed: Pitt Bull
Local Veterinary hospital charges for weight of dog. Pain pills for after surgery cost $20-25 extra if desired. My local vet is awesome with being cost conscious for his clients. Check around locally for good prices and a new vet may be in your future as well.

The high cost!
Amount: $1,066.00
Posted by: Tamra Engle in Oakland, CA.Posted: March 20th, 2012 12:03PM
Treatment: SpayBreed: German Shepard
the quote from our vet in Oakland Ca to spay our 6month old german shepard ranged from $845-$1066 (cost range dependent upon blood work, post op meds, collars).
Which seems terribly high to me. based on others posts it seems even more ridiculous.... I have had a long standing relationship with this vet and have found services in the past to be comperably priced, I have a call in to the vet to see what "special services" warrant the inflated surgical costs?

A vet\'s perspective
Amount: $300.00
Posted by: Jeffvet in San Antonio, TX.Posted: March 6th, 2012 07:03PM
I am a veterinarian that owns a one doctor small animal practice. My average dog spay is around $300 which probably does not cover the cost to do the procedure. Spays and neuters are not profitable and non-profit clinics are heavily subsidized.

18 yr old SHITZU
Amount: $1,417.00
Posted by: Unemployed for 2 years in Lakewood, NJ.Posted: February 28th, 2012 08:02AM
Treatment: SpayingBreed: Shitzu
Vet: OCVH
Received a high and low price and after surgery received a bill upon completion of surgery. Wanted a refund based on the walk out bill
( payment had to be made in full before procedure )and was told there was an adjusted bill which I never received. I never saw the final bill. Never received a resonsible pet owner discount, was told the dog was too old to qualify for the discount.These guys are really good,but sell your home to pay for the great care they give.

Treatment: Neuter/MaleBreed: Blue Nose Pit

Dog needs blood work prior to surgery to neutering. The care and staff are great but the cost is through the roof. It is impossible to keep up with suggested well care visits at this cost.

I was shocked at how much I had to pay but after reading some of these I am glad it didnt cost that much. But I also have to pay an additional $48 for one deformed dewclaw to be removed.

Puppy Spaying
Amount: $200.00
Posted by: Marylander in Upper Marlboro, MD.Posted: January 13th, 2012 06:01PM
Treatment: SpayBreed: JRT mix
Vet: The Spay Spot, MD
Our 7 mos old was in HEAT! And what would have been only a $100 fee, cost us an extra $100. Fees around here range from $100-$135 with no heat. We knew it would be more expensive but not that much more. We were a little disappointed since we researched this place as one of the less expensive sites but ended up with a higher rate. All in all we are happy with the choice.

Spay/Neuter w/discount Mobile Clinic
Amount: $60.00
Posted by: SMC in Kingsland, GA.Posted: May 25th, 2011 12:05PM
Treatment: Spay & 2 NeutersBreed: JRT / DLH / DSH
Vet: River City Community Animal Hospital
This is a mobile spay/neuter clinic that services SE GA/NE FL. I've had all of my animals fixed using their services and have never paid over $80. This included the spay/neuter, anesthesia, overall check-up, rabies vax, ear cleaning, nail clipping and microchipping. I'd say that's a pretty darn good deal. The only drawback is that they will not neuter dogs over 50lbs and my dog is about 75 lbs which means I have to drive 50 mi to St Francis A.H. in Jacksonville if I want my dog done and that costs $145.
