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 many health reasons to spay or 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.
Community Cat Spay/Neuter
Feral cats must come in a trap or they will not be accepted. This is to ensure the safety of our medical staff. Each cat will receive spay/neuter service, mandatory ear notch, rabies and FVRCP vaccines. Additional services, such as FELV/FIV testing may be purchased additionally.
Call our appointment desk (386) 445-1814 to check the availability of surgery spots for feral TNR surgeries.
