Services for Cats


Female Cats


Male Cats




Our veterinarian reserves the right to refuse your pet for surgery if his/her weight (either over- or underweight) is a risk for surgery. We will be happy to discuss any concerns with you at the time of drop-off.

Cats must be at least 3 lb. and 3 months old to be spayed/neutered at the clinic. All cats will be given a brief exam and subcutaneous fluids if necessary. There is no extra charge for cats who are pregnant; however, if your cat is deemed overweight there will be a difficult surgery charge in addition to the spay/neuter charge. If our veterinarian feels your cat is not able to have surgery due to excessive weight, you will have to reschedule your appointment until your cat has lost weight. Please use this chart to see if your cat is over- or underweight.

Please Note: All cats must arrive in a clean, HARD PLASTIC, secure carrier; no soft carriers are allowed and only ONE cat per carrier. We reserve the right to refuse your cat for surgery if our staff deems your carrier unsafe. 

A 20% surcharge will be applied for all refunded appointments.

For an explanation on each vaccine and other services, please click on the highlighted word at left for each item.

Feral Cats


Our feral cat program does not pertain to tame/friendly strays or companion animals. Feral cats are required to come in humane traps. The cost, at left, includes spay/neuter, rabies & FVRCP vaccines, a brief exam, subcutaneous fluids if necessary  and an ear tip. Under this program, eart tips are required; no exceptions. If a cat is deemed friendly by our staff, the price will be adjusted to the regular spay/neuter price.
