Pain Management

We believe that no animal should go without pain medication which is why we provide two forms of pain control the day of surgery.  We strongly encourage all owners to purchase additional pain medications to go home with their pet in addition to what is provided at the hospital at a cost of $10.00.

E-Collars are available at pick up for an additional $5.

E-Collars are plastic cones that go over an animal’s head to keep them from licking or biting at their incision. While some animals are interested in licking, and some are not, an e-collar may be the only way that you will know for sure that they will not have access to their incision. Licking and biting can lead to infection or, in the case of female animals, allow them to open their incision which leads directly into their abdominal cavity.

OTHER SERVICES

The following services are ONLY available at the time of surgery.

VACCINATIONS

- Rabies: $7

We require all animals 12 weeks of age and older to receive a rabies vaccination the day of their surgery unless proof of a current rabies vaccination is shown at drop off. Proof can either be in the form of a dated rabies certificate or a shot record from your regular veterinarian’s office. A rabies tag is not sufficient proof of a current rabies vaccination.

TREATMENTS

- Capstar: $5

Capstar will be given automatically to all animals on which a flea is seen. Capstar kills fleas almost immediately and can be used in conjunction with topical flea treatments and preventatives. Capstar is used to limit the transfer of fleas from one animal to another and to create a sterile environment for surgery.

All animals receive a basic medical exam included in surgery price from one of our veterinarians. Exam charges are typically only assessed in instances when an animal comes to the clinic and does not receive surgery.

MICROCHIPPING

- HomeAgain Microchip, including life-long registration: $25

ANTIBIOTICS

Antibiotics may be recommended if signs of infection are seen in your animal. If infection is noted, we will recommend that your animal go home with antibiotics. Antibiotics are typically between $10 – $15. Examples of infections that may be noted during your animal’s preliminary exam or during surgery include: ear infections, skin infections, uterine infections, upper respiratory infections, etc.

SPECIAL CASES

PEDIATRIC SPAY/NEUTER:
Kittens and puppies can be spayed or neutered as early as 3 months of age and at a weight of 2 pounds or more.

SENIOR ANIMALS:
If one of our veterinarians assesses your animal to be a Senior Animal, there may be an additional charge of up to $20.00. This charge covers the cost of extra precautions given to animals of advanced age to ensure their safety and proper recovery. We strongly recommend Pre-Surgical Bloodwork for Senior Animals prior to surgery. A CBC and chemical profile can be done through your regular vet or may be available through SOS of Ohio.

UNHEALTHY and OVERWEIGHT ANIMALS:
SOS of Ohio reserves the right to deny surgery to animals that are deemed overweight or not healthy enough for surgery by one of our veterinarians. If an animal does not receive surgery, there will be a $15 exam fee assessed. This fee will be used towards the cost of surgery when the animal returns. In most cases, we will provide low-cost treatment of the illness if we are able.
