Affordable Spay and Neuter Surgeries
We take the safety of our precious patients very seriously. General anesthesia can dramatically jeopardize the life of a patient if the appropriate monitoring is not performed. Patient's without monitoring during anesthesia can easily die or can have irreversible organ damage.
In addition to the monitoring we place intravenous catheters on all our surgeries. Without a catheter, if the patient has an emergency during surgery, venous access is extremely difficult if not impossible.
All spays and neuters include:
1. Recheck appointment at no charge 10-14 days after surgery.
2. Pain medication before, after surgery and pain medication to take home.
3. Intravenous catheter for anesthesia and analgesics delivery and fluid administration. Also for emergency use.
4. Anesthesia and anesthesia monitoring every 5 minutes during the surgery.
Parameters monitored: Gas exchange (oxygen, CO2), blood oxygenation-SPO2, blood pressure with doppler and sphyngomamometer, temperature, heart rate, respiration rate, mucous membranes, ECG (electro cardiogram), and apnea monitor (monitors respiration).
5. Very strict aseptic technique. Surgeon wears cap, mask, sterile gown and gloves for every procedure.
We strongly recommend to perform complete blood-work prior to induction to anesthesia. It will give us information about the patient's organ function- Additional fee applicable.

Now offering affordable packages for kittens and puppies 6 to 15 weeks of age that include physical exam, intestinal parasite test, deworming, and the required vaccines according to the patient's age.
6 weeks: First puppy visit! We perform a physical exam, play with the puppy, we offer treats and hugs to ensure a happy experience at the hospital. The puppy's nails may be trimmed (at no cost) if needed. The visit is followed by the required vaccine, Canine Distemper – Adenovirus type 2 (Upper respiratory infections vaccine) – Parvovirus vaccine (Immunization against intestinal virus), anti-parasitic medication, and fecal sample collection. Nutrition consult available. Free sample of heartworm preventative. The puppy receives one injection only. We highly recommend that you keep puppies away from doggy parks or contact with other animals with unknown vaccination history until the immunization protocol has been completed.
9 weeks: The puppy is back to the hospital three weeks later for a physical exam and vaccines. At this point, we will start comparing weight and growth curve. We administer a second dose of Canine Distemper – Adenovirus type 2 – Parvovirus vaccine, anti-parasitic medication, and fecal sample collection. We play with the puppy, give him/her hugs, tasty treats and loving. The puppy receives one injection only. Other vaccines such as Lyme (Lyme disease transmitted by ticks), H3N8 (flu vaccine), bordetella (kennel cough vaccine given by mouth), and leptospirosis (zoonotic disease transmitted through contaminated water) are available. One injection given unless other vaccines are requested.
12 weeks: We perform a physical exam, Canine Distemper – Adenovirus type 2 – Parvovirus vaccine, anti-parasitic medication, and fecal sample collection. At this point we can discuss spay/neuter surgery and the appropriate time to schedule it. During this visit we will also boost any Lyme or Flu vaccine. Most likely the puppy's growth chart has made dramatic changes since the first visit! We will be happy to discuss any questions or any concerns you may have. Play, hugs and treats given at each visit. One injection given unless other vaccines are requested.
15-16 weeks: Puppy's last visit. In this visit the puppy “graduates” from the immunization protocol. After the physical exam we will be giving the first rabies vaccine, along with tag and certificate and the very last booster of the Canine Distemper – Adenovirus type 2 – Parvovirus vaccine and anti-parasitic medication. After this visit, the puppy will be due for annual physical exam in a year. Two injections given unless other vaccines are requested.

We would love to see kitties every year for their annual physical exams. Each year and in every visit, we perform a very thorough exam to detect changes in weight, hydration, dental disease or any other abnormality. Cats are extremely good at hiding ongoing illnesses. When a kitty shows signs of illness (not eating, lethargy, abnormal behavior, hiding underneath furniture, ect) in most cases potential conditions are in their terminal stage. At North Hills Animal Hospital we offer our clients a very affordable feline blood analysis package to assess the patient's organ function and to detect diseases in early stages. We put our heart in your feline friend's care and we want him/her happy and healthy for many years.
