@DiamondnLovey:  That price sounds good. I also live in ontario and we just got our dog spayed in October. It cost $430 total and she weighs 5 lbs. We called multiple other vets in our area and it was around the same price.

Wow! That’s expensive! I paid around $125AU ($US115?) for my 6 lb toy poodle. And pretty sure that included microchipping.

That price is outrageous. The SPCA and I think even some other organizations like them does it for like 50 bucks. Our vet wanted to charge us 250 for our female puppy and I nearly had a heart attack. I drove the 45 minutes to the county SPCA. They were very nice at ours and took good care of my baby girl. I’ve never heard of anyone having problems.

I took my 24 lb Frenchie to a spay clinic when all the vets in town quoted me $300 and up. At the clinic, it was $60 for the spay, $15 to microchip, and $5/vaccination. I got her up to date on all shots, microchipped, spayed, and take home pain meds all for $90. I was a bit nervous, but they assured me everything would be fine and it totally was!

The only thing is… they gave her a tattoo! I guess they mark spayed dogs with ink on their bellies now in case they run away and get taken to the shelter, they don’t have to look inside and see if she has been altered or not. So now my girl is totes rocking some green ink on her belly!

@FutureDrAtkins:  

They give all spayed dogs in Australia a tattoo in their ear.. makes it a lot easier to prove they have been spayed! 😉

Free because she was adopted! I think it would have been 250-300 otherwise.

Honestly, it sounds inexpensive to me. It was $650 to have my Jack Russell neutered, which is a much simpler surgery. We are in an pretty expensive area though. For what it is worth, if you consider all of the care involved in these surgeries, the prices make sense. Your vets are not gouging you. If you saw what happened to your pet behind the doors, I think many of you price shoppers would change your minds. Just remember there is some truth, “You get what you pay for”. It is abdominal surgery after all, and I have seen more than one young, healthy animal die during or after a spay due to mistakes. Small animal clinics are often crazy, fast-paced places. Trust me, your vets are not out to get your money. They could have easily gone into human medicine and be making three times the money and have much easler, cleaner jobs. My advise FWIW, choose a vet based on the care they provide, not because they are the cheapest.

@DiamondnLovey:  That is a wise decision for sure. Only the best for the puppydogs! Some of those cheaper places don’t even give them pain meds. Breaks my heart!

@DiamondnLovey:  My original quote from my vet was $500. The Humane Society does low cost spay/neuters. I got my little daschund fixed for $120 with them. It turned out very well. Check with them?

@DiamondnLovey:  I have to go through heat episodes with our labrador (my boyfriend’s dog.) Yes, it’s gross, but a pack of diapers for $20 will last her through the heat. Perhaps will save you some money to go towards the wedding?
