Rabies vaccine: $17
Additional fees that may occur:
In heat/pregnant fee, $25
If the patient has enlarged vessels or excess fat, there will be an additional charge, because the surgery will take longer and be more complex.
Abdominal Cryptorchid, $25-$95
Depending on species and type of cryptorchid.
CapStar, $7.89-$8.13 plus tax
SPCA Florida's Medical Center is a flea free facility. Any patient discovered to have live fleas will be given a Capstar treatment.
Important for all spay/neuter surgeries: Some low-cost clinics do not include pain medications to go home after a spay or neuter, but all SPCA Florida patients are sent home with pain medications.* Dogs and cats feel pain, just like we do, and providing good pain control post operatively is an essential part of surgery. Don't settle for anything less for your pet.
*Cats receive a long-acting injection for pain control after a spay or neuter instead of oral medications.
Does low cost equal low quality?
Not at SPCA Florida.
In order to perform a high volume of spay and neuter surgeries, our process must be efficient and safe.
Each patient undergoes a physical exam prior to surgery, and all drugs doses are calculated for each patient prior to surgery.
All of our surgical packs and surgical instruments are sterilized prior to each use. And only sterilized instruments are used for each patient.
Our staff surgeons are extremely skilled in order to spay/neuter at least 30 patients a day. And our nursing staff has to be just as skilled to safely anesthetize and recover this high number of patients.
All patients are monitored by our trained staff while they are under, and recovering from, anesthesia. Our monitoring includes heart rate, heart rhythm (ECG/EKG), blood oxygen saturation (pulse ox), respiratory rate, and temperature.
Blood pressure monitoring and EtCO2 (measurement of the amount of exhaled carbon dioxide) can also be used at SPCA Florida. However, as most spay/neuter procedures are quick procedures, these two items are usually reserved for longer procedures or higher-risk patients.
Some low cost clinics do not automatically prescribe pain medications for spays and neuters. At SPCA Florida, postoperative pain control is ALWAYS provided for EVERY patient. All patients receive injectable pain medications prior to recovery. All dogs are sent home with medications for pain relief, while cats are given long-acting injections for pain control.
