Cook County residents can have their dogs, or cats, spayed/neutered during the month of February and save $40 through their veterinarian.
Simply schedule an appointment in February with North Center Animal Hospital for spay/neuter surgery. Limit is two pets per household.
Veterinarians receive a $40 rebate for each spay/neuter performed during the month of February, which will be reflected on your bill.
All pets must either receive a rabies vaccination and tag the day of surgery or have a current rabies vaccination and tag to qualify for the program.
Spaying a female (removing the ovaries and uterus) or neutering a male (removing the testicles) are veterinary procedures performed under general anesthesia. Both surgeries usually require minimal hospitalization. (Most times they go home the same day.) Besides preventing unwanted breeding, neutering a male cat or dog before six months of age prevents testicular cancer and prostate disease. Spaying a female cat or dog helps prevent pyometra (a pus-filled uterus) and breast cancer; having this done before the first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Breast cancer can be fatal in about 50 percent of female dogs and 90 percent of female cats. For an older, seriously ill animal, anesthesia and surgery are complicated and costly. Having this done preventatively is the best medicine.

February is Dental Health Month
We want to help contribute to your pet’s healthy smile! Call and schedule a cleaning for the month of February to receive a $40.00 discount on these services. Mention this post when you call so that we can apply your discount on the day of the procedure.
Not many animals brush and floss, making periodic professional cleanings essential. Gingivitis, tartar and decay not only make for bad breath, but can lead to infection and loss of appetite. Infections of the mouth are known contributors to heart, kidney and liver diseases.
Anesthesia is a must for pet dentals. Routine cleanings consist of ultrasonic scaling (both above and below the gum lines) and polishing. Your veterinarian will perform an exam of each tooth and the entire oral cavity. Digital dental x-rays tell us how healthy the roots of the teeth are, and if any teeth will need to be removed. Blood work and IV fluids may also be necessary based on your pets’ age and health status.
Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is an important part of your pet’s care. We appreciate what our furry family members bring to our lives and want to keep them happy and healthy for a long time!
Please give us a call to schedule a dental cleaning or for any of your veterinary needs!
