Spay & Neuter Information

Your dog must be at least four months of age and be current on rabies and distemper vaccinations. Spay and neuter surgery pricing is based on your pet's weight. Neuter surgery for a male dog is priced between $125 and $255. Spay surgery for your female dog is priced between $145 and $295. There may be additional charges if your dog is in heat, pregnant, obese or cryptorchid. The veterinary clinic recommends pre-anesthesia blood work and post-surgical pain medication, and these are in addition to the surgical fees.

Your cat must be at least four months of age and current on rabies and distemper vaccinations. A neuter for a male cat is $50, and a spay for a female cat is $75. There may be additional charges if your cat is pregnant or cryptorchid. The veterinary clinic recommends pre-anesthesia blood work and post-surgical pain medication in addition to the surgical fees. Please bring your cat in a carrier on the day of surgery.

Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Release Program
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley offers a Trap-Neuter-Release program package price: $50 includes spay or neuter surgery, a spay incision line tattoo, an FeLV/FIV test and Rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. In addition to the sterilization surgery, one ear is tipped (notched horizontally) while the animal is under anesthesia. The ear is tipped to help easily identify those altered feral animals at a distance, so that they do not need to be anesthetized again in the future in order to determine if a spay/neuter has been performed.

Feral cats must be inside their traps when they are brought to the clinic for surgery. Clients should bring a cat carrier to transport the cat home. Clients should consider providing a safe indoor location (such as a garage) for the cat to stay in for one night following surgery.

“The Works”
Ask for “The Works” with your spay or neuter for your dog or cat. For a package price of $95 (plus the cost of the spay or neuter surgery), we will include pre-surgical blood work, post-operative pain medication, and a microchip at the time of surgery. These services are available separately if you prefer.

Puppy and Kitten Packages
The veterinary clinic offers packages for puppies and kittens between 8 and 12 weeks of age. The package includes a wellness exam, distemper vaccination, and two deworming treatments at eight weeks of age; a recheck exam, distemper booster, and intestinal parasite screening at 12 weeks of age, and a rabies vaccination, third distemper booster, spay or neuter surgery and a microchip at 16 weeks of age. The puppy package also includes a bordetella vaccination. The kitten package is $235.00. The puppy package is $310.00.

Rabbits and Small Mammals
A male rabbit may be neutered between three and four months of age (or older) at a cost of $60.00. A female rabbit can be spayed at six months of age (or older) at a cost of $90. We also offer neuter services for guinea pigs and rats for $60.00.

Spay/Neuter Assistance for Low-Income Families
The veterinary clinic offers the SHARE Program, which provides discounts on medical care (including spay/neuter surgeries) to clients who qualify as low income. In this way, we can ensure that companion animals receive proper medical care and remain in their homes with their guardians. This program is limited to families living in Boulder or Broomfield counties. Qualifying patients must be spayed or neutered to receive discounted services. To see if you qualify for the SHARE program, bring proof of residence and income to our veterinary clinic during regular business hours.
