Milo was neutered a little later in life at 1 yr 10 months old.
He had a pre-op exam ($45), was current on his vaccines and also pre-op blood work ($60)..
Routine neuter in an adult medium breed dog.
There are a few options for canine neuters. I like to talk to pet parents about all of them. I always make sure their adult teeth are in place, the testicles have descended into the scrotum and no other congenital defects present (hernias, etc). I also talk about gastropexy’s in large and giant breed dogs and perhaps a scrotal ablation.
Milo was given an iv catheter, iv fluids for his neuter.
Cost of Milo’s neuter is as follows;
surgical package; i.v. catheter, i.v. fluids, fluid pump, anesthesia, surgical pack $250
routine canine castration$100,
injectable pre-op NSAID $46
anti-nausea medication (he woke up nauseous) $56
pain medication to go home $14
