Our current partnership with Orange County Animal Services allows us to perform low-cost spaying and neutering at our new Alafaya Clinic. Core vaccinations as well as heartworm testing and prevention will be available for patients at an additional cost.
The clinic was implemented to address a problem plaguing Orange County for decades – pet overpopulation. Each year, Animal Services, the county’s only open admission shelter receives approximately 18,000 homeless pets. While the shelter makes every effort to secure a live release for these pets, due to the sheer volume that is not always possible. Accessibility of spay and neuter services will be key in helping to curb this problem and is a step forward for animal welfare in Orange County.
The clinic will also serve moving forward the strategic goal of the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando to reduce the amount of kittens and cats entering shelters across the county.

Surgery can be done as early as 12 weeks of age.
As animals age there is the potential for development of conditions that can make routinely used anesthesia drugs difficult for their system to handle. Blood work can help identify problems that should be considered before anesthesia is administered and helps lower the risk of potential complications.
It is not required, but strongly encouraged. Spay/Neuter of pets helps to control over population of animals in our area. The result is fewer homeless pets in our community. If your pet is not altered prior to their first appointment, we can schedule a spay or neuter appointment for you if you would like.
At 8 weeks of age, your puppy should receive Bordatella, DA2PP, and Canine Flu vaccines. It’s also recommended that puppies also receive Strongid, a dewormer.
