Spay & Neuter

LOW COST SPAY/NEUTER INFORMATION

 

Thunder Bay and District Humane Society Veterinary Clinic is now offering low cost spay and neuter to the public.

High Volume/Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinics are an alternative to private clinics for some but not all animals.  We have guidelines in place to ensure that your pet meets our criteria.

Dogs:

  • Must be between 3 months- 6 years of age. Older animals benefit from more in-depth monitoring, preanesthetic bloodwork, and IV fluids which are not something we can provide.  If you want to still schedule your dog in that is older than 6 years old this is an option after a conversation with our Veterinarian.  You will have to sign a waiver for high risk animals to have this surgery performed.
  • Animals must be healthy. We do not perform surgeries on animals with any serious medical concerns or those with heart murmurs or histories of seizures.
  • Female dogs can be spayed in heat. This does increase the risk of surgical complications and a $30 fee will be added on.
  • Female dogs can be spayed when in early pregnancy (abortion). A $30 additional fee will be added on to surgery. There is an increased risk of surgical complications with this surgery.
  • Female dogs must be completely weaned from their puppies for 14 days prior to surgery.
  • We recommend that they be up to date on vaccinations but do not require it. Animals that are not vaccinated are at risk of picking up disease while in for surgery.

 

Cats:

  • Must be 8 years or younger. Older animals benefit from more in-depth monitoring, preanesthetic bloodwork, and IV fluids which are not something we can provide. If you want to still schedule your cat in that is older than 8 years old this is an option after a conversation with our Veterinarian.  You will have to sign a waiver for high risk animals to have this surgery performed.
  • Must be at least 2 pounds or 2 months of age.
  • Animals must be healthy. We do not perform surgeries on animals with medical concerns or those with heart murmurs or a history of seizures.
  • Cats in heat and at any stage of pregnancy(abortion) can be spayed. No additional fees apply.  There is an increased risk of surgical/anesthesia complications with this surgery.
  • We recommend that they be up to date on vaccinations but do not require it. Animals that are not vaccinated are at risk of picking up disease while in for surgery.
