My cat just won't eat this stuff. I had to hand feed it to her just to get her to try some then I used toppers of bonito flakes and crushed no grain kibble. I have warmed it, put it on super clean...
I wanted to ensure my new kitten did not use her claws on my furniture like my previous cat. So at an early age I presented her with 4 scratching type objects~ 1st was a carpet covered condo...
This review is actually for the freeze-dried stuff... it comes in pouches of different raw meat, freeze dried with some fruit (?). I bought it for when I was out on vacation for the cat sitter...
I thought that getting Catnip bubbles would be a wonderful idea with three six month old kittens at home. So I went out and got them. I let my three year old little cousin play with them last night...
My cat's love the taste of the treat. But like all things that taste good, usually theres a reason why. These treats contain a lot of different unnamed by-products, including dried meat...
How much does your vet charge you to spay a cat? - Page 2post #31 of 4011/16/12 at 11:31amI just paid around $300 for Pepper. That included laser surgery, inhalant anesthesia and microchip.post #32 of 4011/16/12 at 11:41am
Wow I thought the prices over here were high but some of those prices no one here would ever get them done if the vets charged some of those prices. Last month Willow cost me €100 this was $127 and Salty was €50 so $63 this included antibiotics for Willow and her stitches taken out 10 days later.post #33 of 4011/16/12 at 11:55am
In the Washington, DC area I was quoted anywhere from $285 (male) to over $800 (female, required overnight stay) to get a cat spay/neutered. Those prices are from vets.
For TNR purposes, it is around $60, which includes rabies, calicovirus shots, defleaing, etc. The organization I went through to get 35 cats s/n off and on over a 2.5 year period luckily didn't require the cats to be absolutely feral; at least 1/3 of these cats were previously owned but abandoned. An organization I volunteer for recently opened its own non-profit s/n center. They charge for $55 female, $45 male, rabies and eartip. As part of the arrangement they made with other vets--who were opposed to them opening a s/n clinic in their neighborhood--they had to agree not to offer any routine care services and cannot keep cats overnight.post #34 of 4011/16/12 at 7:29pm
Once or twice a year our local SPCA does a free spay/neuter for cats, kittens and pitbulls. Luckily, Java was old enough when the time came so her spay and rabies vaccine was free. We did pay the $15 for after care pain meds and an e-collar (which we ended up not needing). We appreciated it SO much.
The low cost animal hospital here charges $25 for neuters and $60 for spays. Both include pain meds/after care.
Regular vet charges around $100 for spay and $50 for neuters. Depending on what part of town you are in though, it can get crazy expensive.post #35 of 4011/17/12 at 2:03am
Wow that price is just outrageous!!!! At my shelter the adoption fee is $70 and that includes the surgery, first shots, first deworming, microchipping, and a free vet visit! If you have another pet and just want to get them fixed it's $40. There is also another shelter that has a mobile spay and neuter clinic in the Summer and Fall that only charges $10!
I totally understand that vets are running a business same as everyone else and that there is a lot of overhead associated with that. However, I would think that most vets would care about general animal well-being and would want to support the message of spay and neuter and so would make it affordable. I know they have to make a living but that shouldn't happen at the expense of their morals!
Re-coup the overhead in some other way. Make spay and neuter more affordable!post #36 of 4011/17/12 at 12:17pmQuote:Originally Posted by EB24

I agree. My previous vets (when I lived in Leeds) were not cheap, except for neutering. They did a lot of the RSPCA work and I'm sure they were very aware of how essential making neutering costs reasonable is.post #37 of 401/21/13 at 5:23pmpost #38 of 401/21/13 at 8:29pmpost #39 of 401/22/13 at 1:12amToronto prices depress me. For everything-not just animal care, lol. My vet price to get an ultrasound in Toronto is 700 with tax. Welcome to the big city! A spay at my Scarborough vet was around 200, I think. Neuter was a lot cheaper.post #40 of 401/23/13 at 11:50pm
I think it would be difficult to find a regular vet that does spays for under $200 in Ontario. Maybe a neuter..
Spays run between $250 and $350 depending on the vet. And we are in "cottage country". Most drive to the
low cost spay/neuter clinic in Newmarket. And most vets will not spay until they have had all of their shots.
Most cannot afford hundreds of dollars and we wonder why we have cat's coming out our ying yang. :(
