Yes, it's been a long time since I had a dog spayed. I almost fell out of my chair when I just made Layla's appointment. WTH?! Are they going to serve her caviar as a post-op meal?

I don't remember what it cost to get Raven spayed... it was included with her Wellness plan.

It cost me about $300 to get Kaiser neutered.

When I had to get my cats neutered and spayed, I called around and got them both done for the cost that our vet up until then wanted just to spay the female. Lots of places have low cost clinics. I think $200-400 for a spay is pretty typical.

It is expensive. For those that might be interested some Shelters offer low cost spay/neuter programs. Here in Northern California we actually have a Van sponsored by the SPCA that comes by from time to time and offers no charge spay/neuters. My youngest boy, Eli, was neutered by them.

I personally have not had good experiences with low-cost clinics. When I lived in Austin my foster dogs were spayed and neutered at a vet clinic that did the work for their cost for the rescue. When I moved to Dallas I had to start using low-cost clinics. The dogs had noticeably more pain and longer recovery times than they did when we were using the vet clinics.

I wouldn't do it either for a spay/neuter but it's available. Where I live there are also coupon programs where you go to a regular vet with a discount coupon.

Well... I was going to wait 'til Kali was 2 before I had her spayed. BUT, she came down with Pyometra at 18 months, and a visit to the E-Vet and a bill for $2k+... uh...
I wish I only had a $300 spay to do...

I got Zeb neutered with a voucher from the humane society. I went there, pay THEM $60 for the voucher and then set up an appointment with 1 of 15 vets that accept them. They treated him just as well as if I had paid the full $$$. Best part was his usual vet was on the list! My cat was spayed at the humane society ANImobile for a "donation" of $40.

It cost me $350 for Keeta - I had a voucher from the Shelter (worth about 150 if I remember right). There was extra costs for a "large dog spay", and I had her tattooed, and updated on shots, all in one.

Since I had adopted Keeta the shelter has opened a low-cost clinic - haven't heard anything bad about them, and according to the latest stats, having the low cost clinic available has halved the unwanted dogs cats that the shelter normaly deals with.

Glad to hear that! I know it helped us out greatly and they were awesome. I was worried, but they were super good.

The price they gave me for Brewski who is 83lbs and 16 mths is $325 tx included and that is a neuter, boosters and chip. I know here the price depends on the weight of the GSD !
Brewski is not neutered yet vet recommended to wait for him to mature a little more, but the quote is good for a year!

I'm expecting it to be around $300 to have Shasta spayed. Our local spay/neuter clinic won't take dogs over 50 pounds. Shasta hasn't been under 50 pounds since she was 4.5 months old.

Frank was $300 including the microchip for his neuter, our vet has a check off list where you can pick what you want and do not want, I went the whole 9 yards with Frank lab work, IV fluids, pain meds, laser, etc, basic neuter without all that is about $80-$100
I only do the basice neuter/spay with the feral cats that come to our barn and they do well with that so I guess if you wanted to save money you wouldn't have to have everything for the dogs.

Around here you can get a spay for less. I am not comfortable with it and want the monitoring and meds I get with the 200.00 spay.
