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.
How much is spay/neuter surgery?
- Kitten Neuter (<6 months old*) – $60
- Cat Neuter – $80
- Kitten Spay (<6 months old*) – $80
- Cat Spay – $100
- Puppy Neuter (<6 months old*) – $150
- Dog Neuter – $190 (See below for discount for pitbulls)
- Puppy Spay (<6 months old*) – $190

- Feral Cats – HSHV’s Trap, Neuter and Return Program aims to reduce overpopulation of feral cats, so we have reduced pricing for feral cats spay/neuters. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Pitbulls receive spay/neuter surgery at half price, with DHLPP and Rabies vaccines included at no additional cost. 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.

Making a choice to humanely end a life can be one of the toughest, but necessary decisions for an animal who no longer has a good quality of life. Our staff is here to help you during this difficult time.
If you are unsure about the quality of life your pet is experiencing, please make an appointment for an examination and consultation with us. If your animal is seriously ill or suffering and you have reached a decision for humane euthanasia, please call us for an appointment.
We offer humane euthanasia for your pet in your home or in our clinic, and several different options for cremation services. All services are by appointment only so that we can ensure we can allow you space and time for mourning. Prices are affordable and range depending on the services requested.
If you wish, you can download and complete the request for euthanasia form at home and bring it with you.
Just like humans, domestic dogs and cats need regular check-ups. Their mouths are perfect incubators for all kinds of bacteria. And did you know that proper dental care can extend the life of your companion animal for 3-5 years? It can also improve their breath!
HSHV offers affordable dental care. Please call us for more information or to schedule a dental consultation.
Laser therapy accelerates the body’s own healing process by stimulating cellular activity. It’s drug-free, surgery-free, and non-invasive. Using a laser light to penetrate muscles, tendons and ligaments, we can promote healing within. Though there’s no sedation, pets often fall asleep during treatment, as the laser light is slightly warm and the animals find their therapeutic sessions calming.
Laser therapy has been scientifically proven successful in treating many acute and chronic conditions including:
- Arthritis and sore joints
- Back injuries
- Sprains and Strains
- Chronic ear infections
- Repairing wounds
- Post-surgical healing
Applications typically take 5-15 minutes, depending on the size of your animal and the area being treated. Treatments initiate a healing process that continues to reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment. Multiple sessions are usually recommended, though pets often show results within 1 day their first treatment. Pets (and humans) are fitted with protective eye gear, and all treatments are performed by a trained technician.
