Dogs

As pet owners ourselves, we at Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic understand that you only want the best for your loyal companion. The benefits spay/neuter offers will help your furry friend live a longer, healthier, happier life: You'll be able to reduce the risk of deadly diseases such as mammary and testicular cancers; your male will have a lessened drive to mate and assert territorial dominance; your female will avoid a deadly uterine infection called pyometra plus unwanted litters of puppies; your dog or puppy will be less likely to roam, to show aggression, and do damage to your home. 

Spay/Neuter Prices for Dogs

Spay/neuter services are available for most breeds* that are at least 3 pounds and 3 months of age. On the morning of surgery, our veterinarian will clear your dog by performing a brief examination while you wait. If your dog is deemed overweight, our vet will use his discretion on whether we can go forward for surgery with a difficulty charge or if your dog needs to lose weight before he or she can have surgery; there is no extra charge for pregnancy.
You can assess the BMI of your animal by viewing our dog body-weight assessment guide here.

State law requires that all companion animals be up-to-date on rabies vaccines. If your dog or puppy is up-to-date, please bring his/her rabies certificate with you on the morning of surgery or have your veterinarian email or fax the rabies certificate to us. If your dog or puppy is not up-to-date, we can vaccinate him/her the same day as surgery.

We understand that for reasons beyond your control, you might miss your appointment. We are happy to reschedule you 
once at no extra cost. However, if you miss your appointment a second time, you will be charged a $25 rescheduling fee. 
We encourage you to commit to your appointment. If you decide to cancel your appointment for a nonmedical reason, 
you will be refunded your payment minus a 20% processing fee.

Fortunately, the State of Connecticut offers a voucher program for residents on Medicaid, HUSKY and other services for up to two pets (cat or dog only). The voucher covers the cost of surgery, and rabies and distemper vaccines if needed. Voucher recipients are required to pay Nutmeg the following co-pay:

Vouchers are valid for up to 60 days from the date they were issued; sorry, we cannot accept expired vouchers.
