High Quality Affordable Spay and Neuter Services Now in Lake Oswego

Spay and Neuter prices and surgical protocols vary widely throughout the Portland Metro area. Our goal at Compass is to provide clients with all the information needed to make an informed decision regarding these procedures. As Medical Director, Dr. Connolly strongly believes in making spay and neuter surgeries as affordable as possible, without sacrificing patient health and safety.

At Compass, we perform a thorough pre-surgical exam on every patient. The pre-surgical exam is included in the procedure price, and is an important step toward ensuring your pet’s health for the surgery. To keep your pet safe, every surgical instrument is thoroughly sterilized in our state-of-the-art Midmark M11 "Ultra-Clave" Automatic Sterilizer. With new super-bugs on the rise, Dr. Connolly wants to reduce the risk to patients. Your pet's surgeon will also be sterilely scrubbed, gloved, masked, and gowned to prevent any infection risks.

"It's hard to fathom, but some clinics actually re-use the same instruments between patients. While that may reduce their operational cost, I will not compromise on patient health and safety."

Spay and Neuter Procedure

We use the same anesthetic gas used in human medicine, Isoflurane. Some "low cost" spay and neuter facilities rely on injections of anesthetic drugs only. While this is a less costly and easier method for the veterinary clinic, it does not allow the level of safety and control that inhaled Isoflurane anesthesia provides, and can be much harder on your pet. They are slow acting, non-reversible, offer less control, and cause a longer recovery time than Isoflurane. Every patient undergoing anesthesia is monitored by our BioVet System, which tracks the patient's heart rate, heart rhythm, body temperature, respiration, and oxygenation level throughout the procedure. However, your pet will always have a licensed veterinarian and a technician at their side throughout the procedure.

"We never rely on just the machine. Each patient is also constantly monitored by a veterinary technician. Our technicians are trained to manually check the heart rate, look at the color of the gums, and constantly visually assess the patient and their vital signs. As good as the technology is, we have to also monitor with our eyes."

We provide a careful procedure

Dr. Connolly believes that all patients need and deserve proper pain management. We give your pet medication to make them feel more comfortable during both the procedure as well as recovery. Once the surgery is completed, a technician continues to directly monitor your pet until he or she is able to stand and walk. Our goal is to provide a careful procedure with personal attention to your pet.

For the health and safety of your pet, pre-anesthetic blood work is included with every spay and neuter package. Every patient must be current on their rabies vaccination and must be flea free before any surgical procedure. We also include an IV catheter and IV fluids as medically indicated for your pet.

Compass veterinarians also provide affordable spay & neuter services for rabbits and pocket pets. Please call for pricing.
