Surgery includes combination of pain control and pre-anesthetic injections, Isoflurane inhalation anesthetic, anesthetic monitoring, and sterile surgery pack and suture

Pregnancy, infection and other challenges result in additional fees.

Its not just about avoiding homeless puppies. When we spay a dog we surgically remove the ovaries and uterus. This prevents life-threatening uterine infections and eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer. If she is spayed before her first heat cycle (around 7-8 months age) we almost eliminate the risk of mammary tumors (breast cancer). Half of these tumors are malignant in dogs, and surgery is required to have a chance of cure. Spaying your dog may save her life.

After she is given an injection and falls asleep, she is given a tracheal tube to breathe through and provided with inhalation anesthetic and oxygen for the duration of the surgery. The surgical sight is shaved and scrubbed three times with a surgical disinfectant. The surgeon’s hands are thoroughly scrubbed, plus sterile single use gloves are worn. The surgeon also wears a sterile gown, cap, and mask. Your dog’s belly is draped off to prevent contamination. A sterilized surgery pack contains all the necessary instruments. The muscle and skin are sutured in several layers after the surgery. The surgical sight is treated with healing laser light, to speed recovery.
