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

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

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


Extra Low Rates for Pit Bulls/Mixes

All pit bulls and mixes are now priced according to weight. See the schedule at left. If a dog is deemed NOT to be partly a pit bull breed by our veterinarian, the price for spay/neuter will be adjusted to our regular breed prices, above. If a current rabies certificate is provided, we will defer to what is listed on the certificate by your veterinarian as long as the breed is clearly defined; otherwise, our veterinarian will determine whether your dog is part or full-breed pit bull to be qualified for our extra low prices.
