At the DeWitt Animal Hospital we are proud to participate in the Friends of Animals Spay/Neuter certificate program. This program helps to make spay/neuter surgeries more affordable so that each pet owner can help in the decline of pet overpopulation.

The following requirements must be met prior to scheduling surgery at our facility. Records must be reviewed by our office prior to a surgery being scheduled. 

Dogs:
1. Must have proof of a minimum of 2 Distemper/Parvo (DHLPP) vaccinations administered by a veterinarian, with the last one given after 16 weeks of age or within the last year.
2. Rabies vaccination is required by New York State and must be current.
3. New patients must have a pre-surgical examination performed at DeWitt Animal Hospital prior to scheduling surgery.

Cats:
1. Must have proof of a minimum of 2 Distemper (FVRCP) vaccinations administered by a veterinarian, with the last one given after 16 weeks of age or within the last year.
2. Rabies vaccination is required by New York State and must be current.
3. All cats must be tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV prior to surgery with the minimum acceptable age of 12 weeks.
4. New patients must have a pre-surgical examination performed at DeWitt Animal Hospital prior to scheduling surgery.

There may be additional fees that accompany the use of a Friends of Animals Certificate. Additional fees usually occur if the animal is greater than 6 months of age and over 50 pounds or female cats that are over 6 months of age and are near or in their heat cycle or are pregnant. Female dogs cannot be spayed during heat due to increased health risks - please discuss this with the veterinarian. 

To maintain the safety of your pet while they are under anesthesia, intravenous fluids are required and are NOT covered by the Friends of Animals Certificate. Take-home pain medication is also required to keep your pet comfortable at home the days following the surgery, this is also an additional fee to the owner. Please call the animal hospital directly to discuss these, and any other fees that may be incurred. 

Optional Pre-Anesthesia Blood work is offered at an additional cost. There are several different options for this blood work and it can be discussed at the Pre-Op Exam.
