Unlike many spay and neuter clinics, we at Animal Hospital of Rowlett will never compromise your pet’s safety or comfort.

Pets receiving the low-cost spay and neuter must be:

  • Under 3 years old
  • Under 80 pounds
  • Certain breeds excluded (brachycephalic)

Our ALL INCLUSIVE low-cost dog spays and neuters come with the following...

  • IV catheter placement on every patient, every time - Just like in human surgeries, it is important that an IV catheter be placed on patients (even those going under anesthesia for short procedures).  IV access allows us to give IV pre-operative drugs to calm your dog, IV pain medications to keep your pet comfortable, and IV anesthetic agents.  IV catheter placement also allows for immediate access to a vein in the event of an unforeseen emergency. 
  • IV fluid therapy before, during and after the procedure - When dogs are sedated, they experience a decreased blood pressure from the sedation.  IV catheter and fluids during the anesthetic episode are recommended.  Although not all hospitals offer this service, we feel strongly that this procedure has helped us run a very successful surgery program.  All Schools of Veterinary Medicine and all prominent specialists recommend that every dog have an IV catheter placed before anesthesia and that they receive IV fluids during the surgery. Fluids help with hydration after the blood loss from surgery, maintain blood pressure and help to flush the anesthetic out of the dog's system so they are more awake when it is time to go home.
  • Pre-anesthetic labwork...so we can be as sure as possible that anesthesia is safe for your dog - We require that all patients have labwork run within 90 days of a surgical procedure.  When the doctor is able to review labwork prior to an anesthetic procedure, they are able to adjust the anesthesia protocol and drugs to best fit their patient's needs.  In some cases, labwork results might even postpone or cancel the surgery. 
  • Anesthetic protocol tailored to your pet...because we know every dog is different - Many spay/neuter clinics use only gas anesthesia and don't make any adjustments to the medications each pet is given.  At Animal Hospital of Rowlett Veterinary Clinic, we take into consideration your dog's labwork, the pet's age/weight/breed, how long we expect the procedure to take, etc.
  • Dedicated nurse anesthetic monitor vital signs throughout entire procedure...it isn't just machines - While most surgery is uneventful, emergencies rarely arise. Early detection of impending problems greatly aids our ability to intervene and correct the problem. During anesthesia, fluids are administered through specialized fluid pumps to give precise amounts of fluids. Warm air blankets (Bair huggers) keep our patients warm during anesthesia and speed recovery.
  • One of the best monitors is the surgeon because he is literally visualizing the blood in the circulatory system. Any change in the blood is readily noticed because pets that are breathing 100% oxygen should have bright red blood.Also, we have an anesthetist nurse in the room monitoring anesthesia. She monitors oxygen flow and anesthetic settings on the precision vaporizer, along with heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, heart rhythm, blood pressure, capillary refill time and temperature.
  • We intubate all surgical patients - The endotracheal tube serves as an open passage through the upper airway. The purpose of endotracheal intubation is to permit air to pass freely to and from the lungs in order to ventilate the lungs.  nfortunately, in animal medicine, not all facilities use intubation and not all facilities use general anesthesia.
  • Your dog will recover in an incubator with a bair hugger and baby socks for warmth...not on a cold floor - Yes, there are facilities that recover hundreds of dogs at the same time, un-monitored, on the cold floor.  At Animal Hospital of Rowlett, your pet will be recovered with a nurse anesthetist monitoring their vital signs.  They are kept warm and comfortable, recovering with warm blankets and teddy-bears.  Your pet will never wake up scared and alone.
  • Pain medication provided during surgery and after surgery - Pain control after surgery is important to your recovery. When your pain is controlled, you are able to speed your recovery by participating in your care, focusing on getting well, and avoiding problems that can occur after surgery.
  • Pain medications sent home with every patient - Since your dog has had labwork with us prior to surgery, we are able to safely prescribe medications for your pet that will keep them comfortable in the days following surgery.  Many clinics prescribe the same drugs to all patients, regardless of labwork, which can be dangerous! We will review your pet's medical history and labs and ensure we are prescribing drugs that will be safest for your pet.
  • Free 3 day recheck with a nurse or via virtual consult to ensure healing properly - We want to ensure that your dog is progressing normally after surgery.  The nurse will check the incision for signs of infection or abnormal healing.  The nurse will check your pet's temperature, heart rate and respiration to ensure they are within normal limits.
  • Free suture removal...why should you have to pay for what we put in? - Around 14 days post-op, we will remove any sutures that were placed in your pet during surgery.  At this time, your pet can resume normal activity!
  • Post-operative phone call or text by your doctor the night of surgery - The night of surgery, your doctor will call or text you to ensure you don't have any last minute questions or concerns.  We will make sure you were able to give pain medications and that you have given the pet a small meal.  Just checking in and giving you another opportunity to ask any questions!  We want you and your pet to both sleep easy tonight!
  • Post-operative photo via text or email of your pet safe in recovery - We love sending photos of your pet in recovery.  We know how nerve-wracking it can be to wait to hear about your pet when they are undergoing a surgical procedure.  We want to let you know as soon as possible that they are in recovery and enjoying their time being snuggled at AHR.
  • Written discharge instructions - We know there is a lot of information given at check out.  What to watch for, what medications to give, when to return for visits.  We want to be sure you have everything you need to aide your pet in a successful recovery and we will send all the notes to you in writing - once in an email and once on printed paper at check out!
  • Peace of mind that you provided the best care possible for your best friend - From post op pictures to night of surgery phone calls, we will go out of our way to ensure that you have the best experience possible for your pet.  We know they are your baby and they are our baby too!
