WE ARE DOING SURGERIES ONLY FOR PET OWNERS LIVING IN ST. LOUIS CITY OR COUNTY
Hampton Animal Hospital is participating again in the Ten Spot Fix program. Under this program, cats, and dogs under 50 pounds will be spayed or neutered for $10, subject to the exceptions and requirements noted below. We do require that WE give your pet it's usual yearly vaccinations to have the procedure done at that price. If you live in St. Louis City, the office fee, physical examination, vaccinations against distemper, parvovirus (dogs) respiratory diseases (cats), and your city license will cost $111. If you live in the county, the cost will be $119.
We will not require that we vaccinate your dog or cat IF you live in St. Louis County and bring in a reduced cost spay-neuter certificate. You can obtain this certificate by going to the St. Louis County Animal Control facility at 10521 Bauer Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63132 phone 314-615-0650. You will need to show them a government issued picture ID showing a St. Louis County address, and with the name on the ID being the same name as the name on the St. Louis County rabies vaccination - registration form. You also need to bring that form, and that form has to be current. Please call them first to make sure they still have vouchers left before you go out there, and you MUST bring the certificate with you when you drop your pet off for surgery.
We will also waive the requirement that WE vaccinate your pet if you purchase $75 in additional goods or services from us, excluding food (in addition to the $10 charge for neutering your pet). That could be a microchip, in the case of a dog a heartworm test and some heartworm preventative, or in the case of a cat declawing or testing for FELV/FIV
If you bring in the reduced cost certificate to us, or are purchasing at least $75 in additional goods or services from us (excluding food), we will also need to see written proof from a veterinarian that your pet has received at least 2 distemper vaccination, with the last one having been within the last year, and you also need to bring written proof from a veterinarian that he is current on his rabies vaccination.
There are additional qualifications and exceptions you should be aware of. They are as follows:
$10 is the cost for neutering or spaying for normal male and female dogs that have not had litters and are not pregnant or in heat and that weigh less than 50 pounds. If they weigh 50# or more, the surgery fee would be MUCH more than $10, it would be half of what we usually charge.
If your dog has fleas, they will be treated for them and it will cost an additional $25 to $30 for 1 treatment that will kill 98+% of the fleas on your dog within 24 hours and last for 1 month. If you have a female and she is in heat, we can't do the surgery. If she has had puppies before or if she is currently pregnant it will cost MUCH more than $10.
If you have a male and one of it's testicles is not in it's scrotum, it will cost MUCH more than $10.
There is an additional charge if you wish to take along pain medication to give at home.
You will need to take away your pet's food and water the night before surgery, and not give them anything that morning. You need to be here at 8 AM, and they will go home between 3 and 5 PM.
IF YOU COME IN THE MORNING OF SURGERY AND HAVE ALREADY HAD YOUR DOG VACCINATED ELSEWHERE, AND DO NOT MEET ONE OF THE EXCEPTIONS LISTED ABOVE, WE WILL NOT DO THE SURGERY.
$10 is the cost for neutering a normal male cat or spaying a female cat that is not in heat or pregnant or has not had previous litters.
If you desire, you can purchase additional pain medication for an additional $17 to $40,
If your cat has fleas or ear mites, they will be treated for them and it will cost an additional $25 to $30 for 1 treatment that will kill 98+% of the fleas on your cat within 24 hours and last for 1 month.
If you have a female cat that is in heat when we do the surgery (and most of them are) there will be an additional charge of $43.60. If she is pregnant or has been pregnant before, it will cost more than that.
You will need to take away your cat's food and water the night before surgery, and not give them anything that morning.
You will need to bring your cat in a carrier at 8 AM the morning of surgery. Male cats that are not being declawed will go home that afternoon between 3 and 5 PM. Female cats will go home between 8 and 12 the next day. Cats that are being declawed will go home the next day or 2 days later.
If you want your cat declawed, we will do the surgery even if they have already been vaccinated. The charge to spay or neuter and declaw a cat less than 1 yr old is $210, and for 1 yr or older is $250. In heat or pregnant females would incur additional charges. Vaccinations if done would be additional, at the prices mentioned above. If we are not vaccinating the cat to be spayed or neutered and declawed, you will need to bring along written proof from a veterinarian of 2 distemper vaccinations, with the last one being within the last year, and a current rabies vaccination IF YOU COME IN THE MORNING OF SURGERY AND HAVE ALREADY HAD YOUR CAT VACCINATED ELSEWHERE, AND YOU DO NOT MEET ONE OF THE EXCEPTIONS LISTED ABOVE, WE WILL NOT DO THE SURGERY!!
We are not doing the surgeries March 11 and 12, we are doing them earlier and later than that, and during the week. In fact, we are doing those surgeries now.
