spaying and neutering

I haven't had a puppy in years. What is the average cost of spaying in this day and age? I have two boys that will need the procedure pretty soon.

You would probably have to call vets around your area, I know in my city is about $290/cnd to neuter my boy, the price includes the anesthesia, boarding etc...

neutering I think tends to be a bit cheaper as it isn't as major a surgery as spaying is. It's been awhile since I had to have anything neutered!!

Maybe you can find a vet that will give you discount for having 2 dogs that will need neurtering. Have you looked on line to see if there any shelters that will do it cheaper ?

Wow, only $290 in Sas.? I was quoted around $400 5 years ago and it went up to $600 with added bloodwork, which I would definitely do. To neuter a boy, not spay. Make sure to ask what bloodwork is included or what extra price there is for it.

Some Vets will really pressure you to do the deed too soon and will up their prices after 6 months. Some charge by the weight of the dog but one Vet doubled the price. Something else to ask about.

Yikes! and I thought 290 was a lot... I guess our city really wants us to neuter our pets See, last year when Bestia was neutered, he also had all his baby teeth removed because the new teeth were already out (apparently this is common in yorkies) and I still don't remember paying more than 300 for the whole thing.

One thing we do have is really big fines though, if your dog is to ran out and taken to the humane society, if its not spayed/neutered and licensed you can pay fines of up to 500-600.
