Surgery for Your Pet: Safety and Comfort

Most dogs and cats have surgery at least once in their life, most commonly to be spayed and neuter. At The Animal Medical Clinics, our goal is to provide the safest, most compassionate and pain-free surgical experience for your pet. Occasionally we are asked why surgery might cost more at our veterinary hospitals compared to "spay-neuter clinics". Generally speaking, the difference in price is usually related to the differences in how anesthesia and surgery is performed. We will never sacrifice the well-being and safety of your pet for price. Please click the "Surgery for Your Pet" link on the left for our list of important items for all surgical patients.
