Where Should My Pet Have Surgery?

Spay Today welcomes you to our clinic. We are happy you are considering your options for altering your pet. We would like to take this opportunity to explain our mission and to offer guidance as you decide where to have your pet spayed or neutered.

Since opening in 2006, Spay Today has offered high quality, low-cost spay and neuter services. Our goal is to eliminate euthanasia as a means of population control in local shelters. It is far more humane to prevent unwanted births than to eliminate homeless animals once they are born.

Our veterinarians are licensed by the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board. They, along with our staff, are Humane Alliance trained and deliver excellent care to our patients. We provide gas anesthesia, pain medication, pulse oximeter monitoring, and staff monitoring during recovery for all animals undergoing surgery.

Currently, Spay Today performs surgeries for the Pitt County Animal Shelter and for many Eastern Carolina animal rescue groups. As a non-profit organization we reach out to and subsidize clients who are unable to afford to spay or neuter their pets. Although we depend on the honor system and do not require proof of income, we do strive each day to serve those most in need of our services. We were not created as a "discount "clinic for the general public to save money.

For those individuals who have a regular veterinarian and can afford their services we recommend that you have you pet spayed or neutered by your own veterinarian. We believe that your pets are best served by building and maintaining a relationship with a full-service veterinary practice. You will be helping greatly in our mission by doing this so that we can keep our appointments filled by those who most need our low cost services.

Thank you for taking the time to explore whether or not our clinic will best serve your needs. We are all partners in solving the pet overpopulation problem here in North Carolina and in making our community the best it can be for our animals!

Surgical Recommendation for Dogs 6 Years and Older

Spay Today is dedicated to providing the highest level of care for all patients. As dogs age, surgery becomes higher risk. Dogs are considered “seniors” at 6 years of age. Before Spay Today schedules a senior dog, a full service vet should perform a complete blood panel to make sure that the dog is healthy enough to safely undergo surgery. The blood test checks for conditions that may not be evident through physical exam alone including anemia, kidney or liver disease, infection, and blood glucose levels. Spay Today requires this documentation before we will spay/neuter a senior dog.

Because we do not function as a full service veterinary office, we are not equipped as such. As a high volume spay/neuter clinic, we do not have the necessary emergency resources to fully deal with the potential adverse surgical reactions that often occur in senior dogs. We are therefore unable to perform spay/neuter for dogs age 7 years or more. The risks these senior dogs present are great.

Spay Today has the right to refuse services to any animal, of any age, to whom surgery is deemed a health risk.
