low cost spay in Rochester

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Does anyone know of a low cost vet in Rochester? My friend has an 8 pound 5 month old dog and her vet just quoted them $375 for the spay.

Before you ask why she has a dog she can't afford, her father showed up at her house 3 months ago and said "Surprise! I bought you a puppy!" Regardless of what she "should" have done at that time, she now has the dog. $400 is a chunk of change for such a small dog and I told her I'd see what I could find.

:shock: Whoa momma I know the "cost of living" varies in many areas, but that is a hell of a lot of money for a spay, huh? Maddie's only cost me $25, (well just the operation, overall it was a little more for Rabies, and something else) but I used the operation spay for Texas. Maybe something here will help?

Unfortunately, there really aren't any unless she qualifies for low income.

She doesn't, but due to some serious health problems with her son she doesn't have much "extra" money right now.

If she is willing to travel there are some in our surrounding areas like Syracuse, Ithaca (I know, not ideal) and Buffalo.

All of the places in Rochester I have found have been for people within a certain income level.

Michelle, I will contact a few friends at the shelter in Batavia to see if they know of any places out there way. It is only about a 45 minute drive from Rochester
