Spay/Neuter

Why choose us to spay/neuter your pet?

Our veterinarians perform more than 6,000 spay/neuter surgeries every year. And every one is important; our compassionate clinic staff is devoted to animals and their care. And they're not in it for the money; we are committed to offering affordable spay/neuter to pet owners, as it's the right thing for pet overpopulation, and it provides many health benefits for your pet.

Pitbull Specials

Pitbulls receive spay/neuter surgery at half price, with DHLPP and Rabies vaccines included at no additional cost (Please note: This special pricing and vaccine offer applies during non-promotional times; it does not apply to the current $20 PetSmart Charities special). To qualify for the discount, dogs must appear at least 75% Pitbull at the discretion of the technicians and DVMs at time of drop-off. We at HSHV love Pitbulls and want to help them out!

*We offer discounted sterilization prices to pets under six months of age, as the surgery is faster (which means less time under anesthesia for the pet), the recovery period is shorter, and we'd like to encourage spaying/neutering before your pet can reproduce.
