Dental

02. Dental Exams and Cleanings

Four out of five dogs (over the age of three) have periodontal disease. Dental cleanings and extractions are an important part of your pet's health. Dogs and cats frequently build up tartar and plaque on their teeth. This material is not only unsightly - it harbors dangerous bacteria that can enter the bloodstream and damage organs. This can lead to chronic health conditions, so complete oral care is critical to the health of your pet. ​

If your pet is losing teeth, drooling, has bad breath, drops food, experiences oral bleeding, has a loss of appetite, or shies away from touching near their face, they may have periodontal disease.

Pricing is based on the amount of dental work that needs to be done and ranges based on oral health. 

A physical exam is needed to determine what dental work is necessary. 

A physical exam is $50.

Spay/Neuter Surgeries

03. Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Pet overpopulation is one of the most pressing matters in the veterinary field today. Spay/neuter surgeries are part of the SPCA Florida's core mission, to humanely address overpopulation.

 

We offer affordable fees and encourage pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered at a young age to avoid the risk of accidental pregnancy. In addition, spaying and neutering will help prevent other medical conditions such as mammary tumors, perineal hernias, perianal adenomas, and will completely eliminate the risk of pyometra (uterine infection) and testicular cancer.

Puppies and kittens must weigh at least two pounds prior to surgery.

There is a $50 deposit prior to all spays and neuters at booking.

Cats: 

Feline Spays: $116.65

Feline Neuters: $88.05

Community Cat Spay/Neuter: $72.40

Dogs 

Canine Spays: 

  • Up to 50 lbs, $170.65

  • 50 to 70 lbs, $183.60

  • 71 to 89 lbs, $196.60

  • 90 to 109 lbs, $210.60

  • 110 lbs or more, $277.60

Canine Neuters: 

  • Up to 50 lbs, $150.15

  • 50 to 70 lbs, $163.10

  • 71 to 98 lbs, $176.05

  • 90 lbs or more, $190.10

Additional fees that may occur 

In heat/pregnant fee, $34.60

If the patient has an enlarged uterus, enlarged vessels, or excess fat, there will be an additional charge, because the surgery will take longer and be more complex.

Abdominal Cryptorchid

Feline, $49.15 per testicle

Canine, $128.55 per testicle

If the patient is an abdominal cryptorchid male (one or both testicles have not descended from the abdomen into the scrotum) and an abdominal incision is needed to perform the neuter.

Inguinal Cryptorchid

Feline, $34.60 per testicle

Canine, $88.05 per testicle

If the patient is an inguinal cryptorchid male (one or both testicles have not descended fully into the scrotum) and a second incision are needed to perform the neuter. 

CapStar, $7.58 and up (based on weight)

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.  

04. Laboratory and X-Rays

SPCA Florida's full-service medical center has an on-site laboratory that allows our staff to diagnose pets quickly and begin necessary treatment. Please be aware that some conditions will require sending samples to an external lab. We will make every effort to ship these samples quickly and have results as soon as possible.

The center uses digital X-rays to uncover pets' internal ailments. Whether it's discovering a foreign object through high-definition digital X-rays or exploring the possibility of a broken bone, the state-of-the-art equipment and skilled staff are ready to give a quick and accurate diagnosis for your pet.

05. Prescription Requests

We understand there are many reasons our clients may want to purchase medications from online retailers or outside pharmacies instead of directly from SPCA Florida’s Medical Center. We want to assist in making informed decisions for your pet, and recommend that products and medications be purchased through accredited pharmacies only. However, if you choose to purchase medications from another pharmacy, we want to give you that option.

SPCA Florida’s Medical Center is changing our protocols for outside and third-party prescription requests, so we can spend our time focusing on our patients and clients instead of answering faxes and calling pharmacies. Reviewing medical records, ensuring proper documentation, and calling or faxing the prescription take a significant amount of time. Also, we feel it is better medicine with written documentation of a prescription that is filled outside our hospital. There are concerns about the possibility of prescription errors when relaying information over the phone, and written prescriptions minimize the risk of errors and misunderstandings.

We understand that cost can also be a big factor in choosing an outside pharmacy or online retailer. We do our best to make our medications and preventatives affordable and we routinely compare prices to online providers, to make sure our prices are competitive. Most importantly, by purchasing directly from us and our online pharmacy, you support SPCA Florida.

We absolutely support our client’s right to choose where they obtain their pet’s medication and are happy to accommodate a request to do so by providing a written prescription that can be picked up at SPCA Florida’s Medical Center during normal business hours. Please allow two business days for the written prescription to be authorized once the request is submitted.

We would like to encourage our clients to order medications and preventatives directly from us or through our online pharmacy. Please visit our online store at www.spcamedical.org/pharmacy to see our current offerings. Our online store is part of our hospital’s infrastructure and you will not need a written script if you order this way. The medications purchased directly from us and the online store are guaranteed by the product’s manufacturer, and most importantly, by us - your pet’s veterinarian.

Thank you for trusting us with your pet’s medical care!

Community Cats

10. Community Cats

Unowned cats often live together in groups called colonies. They develop a social structure and have strong bonds between the colony members. Some are strays who once had a home, but many are born in the wild and fear humans.

 

Traditional animal control considered cat colonies a problem and attempted to solve it by removing and euthanizing the cats. That method creates a "vacuum effect" where cats move in from surrounding areas. 

TNVR - Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Return - is a more efficient and humane approach. The cats are trapped in humane traps, examined by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and identified by an ear tip. If you see a cat that's missing the very tip of an ear it means it was a part of a TNVR project and has been spayed or neutered.

 

Cats are returned to their colony and managed by a colony caretaker who ensures the cats have food and monitors their ongoing needs of the cats. 

If you perceive community cats as a problem, download the brochure "Living with Cats in your Neighborhood" - it explains TNVR and gives suggestions on how to solve common problems.

We are dedicated to preventing further overpopulation and will work with cat colony caretakers. Please contact us at 863-646-7722 for pricing and more information.

The below is subject to change without notice.

  • Community Cat Surgeries are conducted Monday through Friday

  • Community Cat Spay/Neuter Surgery: $72.40

    • If grant funds are available, Community Cat Spay/Neuter Surgery is only $35.00 - please check with staff to verify.​

  • Cats must arrive & depart from the Cat Patio - located on the left back side of the Medical Center - in a humane trap

  • Drop-off time: 7:00 to 7:30 AM.

  • Pick-up time: 3:30 PM

  • Pregnancies will be terminated

  • The left ear will be tipped by the veterinarian while anesthetized. This will serve as an easily visible marker if the cat is ever caught in a trap again.

  • Cats will be inoculated against rabies with a 1-year vaccine

  • All cats will receive injectable pain medications to assist with post-op recovery.
     

We can only safely accommodate so many surgeries per day, so we may need to refer to another facility if we’ve hit capacity.


Use a humane trap, not a carrier.

What Our Clients Say

Arianna A.

Dr.Ingrid and her team were literally God send! They put so much care into the time they spend with you. I had come here because I couldn’t afford to help my fur baby at the vet clinic I was currently going to. Their quality of care is amazing and affordable. They truly care about the patient and your budget and will work to help you out where ever they can. All the staff even remembered it was my birthday today. I went from having to think about putting my dog down to having a happy healthy dog that acts like she’s a puppy again. Dr. Ingrid went above and beyond to help us, to the point where she personally called the pharmacist well after the clinics closing hours to ensure that my doggie has the right medicine. We are truly grateful for Dr. Ingrid and her team
