Recently I saw on a pet clinic's website an article about concern over declining vet visits. When I asked at that same clinic how much it would cost to have a (stray) cat spayed the answer was "$ 239.-". And they wonder? I am sure people love their pets but times being what they are the prices at that particular clinic are a bit steep. I don't remember ever having paid that much at a vet, not even in Vienna.
We will take the mama cat to the local shelter to have her spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned. We took MamaCat there as well and they did a good job at a third of the clinic's price.
