Spay and Neuter Services
FHS offers many low-cost spay and neuter services. Ensuring that all animals are spayed and neutered is a focus on ours, as this is the only real way to reduce the pet overpopulation crisis across the country. There are simply not enough good loving homes for all those who need one.
There are many health reason to spay/neuter your pet. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and mammary tumors, which are malignant or cancerous 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. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
Spaying a female dog also eliminates the messiness associated with the heat cycle. Neutering of male dogs and cats can prevent certain undesirable sexual behaviors, such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam.
Flagler County residents who wish to have their pets spay/neutered at a private veterinary practice of their choice may apply to receive a $25 rebate from the County. Download the rebate application here

FHS offers a Wellness Clinic. It offers limited low cost services available by appointment only. In order to keep service prices low – your pet will be seen by a veterinary technician who will take your information and relay to the veterinarian. Your pet may be taken to our medical suite to be seen by the veterinarian. You will not be able to accompany your pet. If you wish for the veterinarian to speak to you personally, you may opt to have a veterinarian consultation for an additional fee. Wellness Clinics are held 2-3 days a week; however, this schedule changes frequently, so please contact FHS at 386.445.1814 to learn about more available dates.
