Spaying and neutering of pet small mammals greatly reduces the chances of reproductive diseases, unwanted behaviors, and unexpected pregnancies. For many people, the cost of preemptively neutering or spaying their exotic pets discourages them from having this important procedure.
As part of our commitment to preventative medicine and to our local community, we offer our VALUE spay and neuter service. Once a month, our skilled surgeons will offer their services at a discounted rate with the hopes that we can make a difference in the lives of many animals who may otherwise not be able to have this important surgery. Below, you may review the differences between the "Value" program (limited availability) and the "Standard" program (higher price, available immediately).
VALUE Spay + Neuter Program
In order to qualify for the $250 fee, you must provide proof of NYC residency (for example: Driver's License, NYS ID)
Offered once every month (you do not choose the date)
Exam with veterinarian is not required
Drop off and pick up same day
Educational handouts included at discharge
Nurse discharge to answer any questions

For younger animals only – see release form for species specific details
Our doctors have designed the "Value Program" with safety in mind, and that is why there is a Release Form that must be read and signed prior to these affordable surgeries. In it there are strict requirements for these pets. For example, there are age restrictions because young animals tend to have much less surgical complications and recover faster. If your pet is older than the restrictions indicate, he/she will not be eligible for the Value Spay and Neuter program for safety reasons.

Appointments available 7 days a week
Full 30 minute examination time
Consultation with the doctor
