FERAL CATS

Feral cats do not require an appointment and can be dropped off Monday-Wednesday at 9:00-10:00 am (holidays may affect this schedule).  Feral cats are required to be in a trap (not a carrier) to receive the feral cat price.  The discounted rate for a feral/community cat is $55. This includes:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Ear-tip
  • 3-year rabies vaccine
  • Tattoo
  • Pain medication injection
  • Dewormer
  • Ear-mite medication
  • Overnight stay

 

An additional FVRCP (Feline Distemper) vaccine may be selected at the caregiver/transporters discretion for an additional $15. This is the only additional service we will provide for community cats. Pet Fix Savannah will not transfer a feral cat from a carrier to a trap for any individual. If our staff determines that a cat brought in as a feral is actually an owned pet, the full-surgery price will be charged.

Pet Fix Savannah rents Feral Cat traps for a refundable CASH-ONLY deposit of $50. Based on availability, you may stop by Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays between the hours of 9:30 am and 3 pm, and Thursdays between 9:30 am and 12 pm to rent.

Pre-Surgery Instructions

Pre-operative instructions:

All Cats and Kittens - Please feed 1/2 of what they normally eat the morning of the surgery
Puppies under 4 months old -  Please feed 1/2 of what they normally eat the morning of the surgery
Puppies and Dogs Over 4 months old - No food after midnight the morning of the surgery

Do not withhold water; it can be given freely until the time of surgery.

 

Payment for service is required at check-in. We accept cash and credit card (Visa, Amex, Discover, MasterCard) for payment. We do not accept checks or care credit.

Please arrive at the Clinic at 8:00 am for dogs, 8:15 am for cats and 8:30 for feral cats.

Please plan on spending 45 minutes at the clinic for patient check-in. It is required that your pet is picked up same-day. Our front desk staff will provide a time-frame for pick-up during check-in--usually between 4 pm and 5 pm).

For their safety, all dogs must arrive on leashes and all cats must arrive in carriers (each cat must be in their own carrier). If you do not have a carrier, drop by the clinic prior to surgery and a cardboard carrier can be purchased for $7.

When you arrive for surgery we ask that you keep your DOG in your vehicle for a brief time, weather permitting, while we complete paperwork and collect payment (cash or card only). Please consider bringing someone with you who can remain in the vehicle with your pet during this time. You will then be asked to bring your pet into the clinic to be examined and weighed by our medical team. Please, let us know if your pet has exhibited any signs of illness, has a known medical condition, or has been on any prescription medication within the last 30 days.

The medical team will ask about your pet’s vaccination status. In Georgia, you are required to have a current rabies vaccination for your pet. If your pet is current, you must bring proof (tags are not accepted forms of proof) or a 1-year rabies vaccine will be provided for a charge of $10.

When you return to the Clinic to pick up your pet you will be given both verbal and written instructions for their post-surgery care.

Top 10 Reasons to Spay or Neuter

 

1. Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.
Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.

2. Neutering provides major health benefits for your male.
Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.

3. Your spayed female won't go into heat.
While cycles can vary, female felines usually go into heat four to five days every three weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for mates, they'll yowl and urinate more frequently—sometimes all over the house!

4. Your male dog won't want to roam away from home.
An intact male will do just about anything to find a mate! That includes digging his way under the fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. And once he's free to roam, he risks injury in traffic and fights with other males.

5. Your neutered male will be much better behaved.
Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human families. On the other hand, unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over the house. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.

6. Spaying or neutering will NOT make your pet fat.
Don’t use that old excuse! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds—not neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to provide exercise and monitor food intake.

7. It is highly cost-effective.
The cost of your pet's spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter. It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered tom escapes and gets into fights with the neighborhood stray!

8. Spaying and neutering your pet is good for the community.
Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, damage the local fauna and frighten children. Spaying and neutering packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets.

9. Your pet doesn't need to have a litter for your children to learn about the miracle of birth.
Letting your pet produce offspring you have no intention of keeping is not a good lesson for your children—especially when so many unwanted animals end up in shelters. There are tons of books and videos available to teach your children about birth in a more responsible way.

10. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
