helix has finally turned 4 months old and emi is currently 8 months. we were going to wait for helix to be old enough so we could have them spay/neutered at the same time. im currently a student at UCR, and cant afford normal cost surgeries at vet offices (like $300+), and i was wondering if any one could recommend a low cost spay/neuter clinic that they had a good experience with! i've had friends who had their dogs neutered at different humane societies or clinics and have heard horror stories so naturally im very skeptical of going to those places and i'm not sure where to go (as i've had my share with terrible shelters and clinics).
thanks in advance for anyone who can help! (:

Hi guys! your corgis are adorable! we hope to see you at the walk next Sunday! =)
Anyways, we went to these guys when we neutered Atticus. We went to the clinic in Van Nuys (they have more than one clinic). They were helpful and assisted us with our worries.
We actually just got Cadbury spayed 10 days ago by AngelDogsFoundation. 20 lbs or less is $110 and Over 20 lbs is $120. Cadbury came home with an e-collar, pain meds, and sedatives (they're not to run or play for 7-10 days). Not only do they get spayed, they also get their nails clipped, rabies shot, and microchipped. All of those are included in the price. As part of the aftercare, they give you a phone number that links you to their on-call doctor...just in case anything happens and/or you have questions. I never had to use it because Cadbury bounced back within the 2nd day. We just removed her e-collar last saturday and her incision has already healed beautifully.
They are a mobile clinic so they are at different locations on different days. I was a little hesitant to go with them since it's like a surgery room on wheels. But trust me, they are so efficient and CLEAN. The staff were soooo nice and kept playing with Cadbury while I was filling out the paperworks....they even got on the floor to cuddle with her. After the surgery, I was worried about how to get my dog into my car. I worried for nothing because they carried her straight to my car and even gave her a kiss on the head goodbye.
AngelDogsFoundation might be a little far from riverside, but it's an option. - http://www.angeldogsfoundation.org/
Pasadena Humane Society has a low cost spay/neuter clinic for the following cities:
Arcadia, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena
They also microchip for only $20.
I assume you live in Riverside, maybe you know someone who lives in one of these cities? Or maybe your humane society has something similar.
i live in Riverside and it has been awhile now, Maya is almost three. but she was spayed at Small Animal Hospital on Magnolia across from brockton arcade. then Mary Roberts Shelter on Van Buren has discount days/events.
aww thanks angela! we actually got them both done at the riverside animal shelter on van buren. it wasnt too bad, 85 flat rate for low income students and they included the licensing fee :) at the time Mary S Roberts had not opened their spay/neuter clinic yet, otherwise they probably would have been my first choice ):
