All pets are required to be current on their vaccinations. Cats must have their FVRCP and Rabies vaccines. If you cannot provide medical documents showing the vaccines were administered by a veterinarian we will administer them.
Our economy declaw fees include the following:
1. A pre-surgical exam performed by the veterinarian to ensure your pet is healthy for anesthesia.
2. The surgery is performed using injectable and gas anesthesia using isoflurane
3. Your pet’s heart and respiratory rates, blood pressure and oxygenation will be monitored closely.
4. Injectable pain medication will be administered before, during and after surgery.
5. The surgical procedure itself.
6. Pain medication to go home with your pet to be given for 3 days.
7. Antibiotics given in the hospital and to go home.
Front 2 paws: $425.00 / All 4 paws: $575.00
Our base price includes the services that we feel are the most important for a successful surgery, however there are several additional services that are important to offer for an additional cost:
1. Laser upgrade The CO2 laser seals as it cuts. This results in minimal bleeding as many of the vessels are sealed. The nerve endings are sealed as well so they transmit less pain sensation, leading to a smoother, less painful recovery period. Front 2 paws: $100 All 4 paws: $180
2. Antibiotic Injection The base price includes an oral antibiotic to be given at home twice a day for 7 days. As an alternative, for your convenience, we can give a single antibiotic injection that will last for 14 days. We offer this at a discounted rate and you would not have to give the oral antibiotic at home which will allow your home care to be easier. $49.50
3. IV catheter and fluids The IV catheter provides quick access to the veins in the event of an emergency. Fluids help maintain blood pressure and protect the kidneys and liver during surgery, and also can help your pet wake up from anesthesia more quickly. This is required for animals 5 years of age or older. $89.75
4. Elizabethan collar This is cone that goes on your pet’s neck to help prevent licking/chewing of the surgery site. Not all pets need this, but it is convenient to have it available if needed. $14.75-24.75
5. Microchip Although this can be installed at any time, it involves a fairly large needle so if done while your pet is under anesthesia and already getting pain medication the procedure is more comfortable. Our microchip includes lifelong registration. Chip $49.95
6. Pre-anesthetic blood testing We recommend a blood screening test before anesthesia for all pets. The tests look for problems like anemia, diabetes, kidney and liver disease. Pets that are 5 years and older are required to have a blood screening prior to anesthesia. $149.50 - $169.50
7. Sedatives for home It is important to keep your pet quiet and calm during the recuperation period in order to prevent complications. We are able to send home medications to help. $18.75
