Eva is a large breed dog. There are important discussions to have with your vet about when the best time to spay a large, deep chested dog. In many cases we are now opting to wait until they reach their adult weight and size to spay and neuter. Thankfully Eva is about the sweetest gentlest girl known, so behavior issues are not a concern. Eva was spayed after all of her puppy vaccines were complete. She was also given the benefit of pre-op blood work (partial chemistry and cbc $60).
Here spay procedure and invoice was as follows;
recheck exam free (all surgery patients should, and in most states, MUST be given a pre-op exam).
spay 50-100 pounds $175
iv. catheter, iv fluids, iv fluid pump $115
injectable NSAID $52
