SERVICES & PRICING

We do not treat sick or injured animals. If your pet is injured, ill, in a cast, or has an upper respiratory infection, skin condition, eye infection or any other medical issue, please see your regular full-service veterinarian for treatment. Only healthy animals will be approved for surgery.

How Much Does It Cost?

UCAN offers the most affordable spay/neuter surgeries in Greater Cincinnati. As a nonprofit clinic, we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to our services.

We recommend that all animals coming to our clinic or using our transport service be current on all of their vaccinations (rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella vaccines for dogs; rabies, FVRCP and feline leukemia vaccines for cats). Please note that it generally takes at least 2 weeks for vaccines to be effective.

Payment

Payment is due at check-in. We accept Cash, VISA and Mastercard only (no checks). There is a $1.00 processing fee for credit card payments.


Rabies Vaccine

Proof of a current rabies vaccine (rabies certificate or vet record) is required at time of surgery. An undated rabies tag on the collar or a passport completed by you is not sufficient proof.

FCVRP (Feline Distemper) Vaccine: $15

FVRCP Vaccine (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus, Panleukopenia Virus)

Feline viral rhinotracheitis and the calici virus are the leading causes of upper respiratory infections in cats.  Sneezing, nasal discharge, runny eyes, and fever are some of the more common symptoms. Most cats continue to spread the virus even after recovery of symptoms.

Panleukopenia is also known as feline distemper or feline parvovirus and is deadly.  Symptoms of the virus may involve extreme listlessness and loss of appetite, fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.  Some cats will not show any symptoms prior to death.  This virus is passed through the feces and can remain in the environment for years.  This vaccination should be started at 8 weeks of age and boostered every 3-4 weeks until the cat is 16 weeks old to ensure full protection.  It should be boostered annually.  If an adult cat has never received this vaccine, or vaccination history is unknown, a booster should be administered 3-4 weeks after the first vaccination is given.  This is considered a core vaccine and is recommended for all cats.

Feline Leukemia Vaccine: $15

Feline Leukemia Vaccine

The Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is passed through saliva and nasal secretions.  It may even be spread when cats share bowls or a litter box.  There is no cure for this virus, and it can result in fatalities if there are secondary complications.  Cats should be tested prior to vaccinating. This vaccination should be started at 10 weeks of age and boostered in 3-4 weeks and then annually.  Cats that go outdoors or that live in a household with a FeLV positive cat, or untested cats, would benefit from this vaccine.

FIV and Feline Leukemia Combo Test: $20

FeLV/FIV Combo Test

The test will screen for the presence of the feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).  If your cat should test positive, he/she should be retested in 2 months to confirm the results.  In addition, cats that have been given the FIV vaccine may yield a false positive result.  This test is recommended by UCAN for any new cat entering a household and for all outdoor cats that may come in contact with other cats.  It is required prior to giving a FeLV vaccine.  We do not offer the FIV vaccine.

Revolution (One Dose – Flea, Parasite, Earmite): $15

Revolution

This medication treats and prevents fleas, ear mites, heartworms, roundworms and hookworms.  It is applied topically and should be repeated every thirty days in cats 8 weeks of age and older.

Frontline (One Dose – Flea, Tick, Lice): $15

Frontline

This medication treats and prevents fleas, ticks, and some species of lice. It is applied topically and should be repeated every thirty days. UCAN recommends the use of flea prevention for all cats.

Dewormer (Pyrantel): $5

Dewormer (Roundworms and Hookworms)

Pyrantel (Strongid) is an oral paste that is given for the treatment of roundworms and hookworms and should be re-administered 10 days after the initial dose.  A microscopic fecal examination can rule out or confirm an infection with these internal parasites, as worms are not always visible in the feces. These parasites can be transmitted from one animal to the next. These parasites are considered ZOONOTIC as they can infect people.


Services for Dogs

  • Rabies Vaccine (1 year or 3 year): $10
  • Microchip (Includes Lifetime Registration): $20
  • Elizabethan Collar (E-Collar, Pet Cone): $6
  • Pain Medication (3 Day Supply): $15
  • Tapeworm Treatment (Praziquantel): $20

Distemper/Parvo (DA2PP) Vaccine: $15

DA2PP 1 YR: Canine Distemper/ Parvo Vaccine protects against Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus.

Symptoms of Distemper can include mild respiratory problems, such as runny eyes and nose, severe diarrhea, vomiting, and even seizures. Distemper can be passed between animals by air or contaminated objects.

Adenovirus type 2 usually causes respiratory symptoms and is contagious much like a cold.  It can cause a cough that can sometimes lead to pneumonia.

Parainfluenza symptoms are much like a cold and include coughing, sneezing, fever and ocular and nasal discharge. This virus is not the same thing as canine influenza.

Canine parvovirus causes severe vomiting and diarrhea as well as lethargy and high fever. There is a high rate of death associated with this virus. The feces in many dogs will be loose or watery with slight amounts to large quantities of blood.  This virus is easily spread through feces and it can live in the environment for years.

This combination vaccine should be started in puppies 8 weeks of age and boostered every 3-4 weeks until the puppy is 16 weeks old. This vaccine should be re-administered annually. Adult dogs that have never received this vaccination, or the vaccine history is unknown, should receive a booster 3-4 weeks after the first vaccination is given. This is considered a core vaccine and is recommended by UCAN for all dogs.

Bordetella Vaccine (Kennel Cough): $15

Bordetella Vaccine

Also known as “kennel cough,” the Bordetella bacteria causes inflammation of the trachea and results in severe coughing and gagging. Dogs that will be in contact with other dogs, such as in boarding or grooming situations, training classes, or even dog parks, may benefit from vaccination.  This vaccine can be given in puppies 8 weeks of age and older and it should be boostered every 6 months to one year depending on the dog’s situation. This is a non-core vaccine, but is recommended by UCAN for at risk dogs.

Heartworm Test: $20

Heartworm Testing/Prevention for Dogs

Heartworms are spread by mosquitoes and live in and affect the heart. Puppies that are started on prevention before they are 6 months of age are not required to be tested first. It takes 6 months for the immature heartworm to reach its adult stages, and therefore you may get a false negative test if performed earlier. The test only takes 10 minutes and should be performed annually even if your dog is kept on prevention. Heartworm prevention is affordable and easy to give. Prevention consists of giving your pet a pill monthly and many products protect against other parasites as well.  UCAN recommends testing all adult dogs for heartworm disease prior to surgery.  UCAN recommends heartworm prevention for all dogs.

Frontline (One Application): $15

Frontline

This medication treats and prevents fleas, ticks, and some species of lice. It is applied topically and should be repeated every thirty days. UCAN recommends the use of flea prevention for all dogs 8 weeks of age and older.

Dewormer (Panacur): $7, $11 or $22 depending on weight

Dewormer (Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms)

Panacur (Fenbendazole) is a broad-spectrum dewormer used to eliminate the most common worms seen in dogs. It is always best to have a fecal sample checked to determine which parasites your pet may have. Several of these worms are considered ZOONOTIC, meaning they can be transmitted to people. If you feel your dog may need a dewormer, this is the medication that UCAN recommends for dogs.

We do not declaw cats. If you are going to declaw your cat, we recommend that you have the spay/neuter surgery done at the same time by a full-service veterinarian so the cat only has to undergo anesthesia once.
