  • Talk to your local SPCA (google it) normally is it a minimal fee, and based on how much anesthesia is used- the size of your dog determines the cost. You must have proof of vaccination as well.

  • Our vet goes by weight, the more they weigh, the more it costs. It was 80.00 for our Collie, she was about 6 months old, and that included everything. I didn't think it was a bad deal.

  • Do a little googling, and see if there is a mobile vaccination clinic in your area soon. They often run from early spring to late fall, and are performed by licensed vets, is completely legal, and very inexpensive. You could get all vaccinations for around $20. Some vets offices will charge as much as $50 just for rabies.

  • I think I paid $150 for my dog but he's a big boy. They charge by their weight I think for the anasthesia.

  • If he is cryptorchid it wi cost alot more. where I work we charge by weight then add $100 for being cryptorchid. I live in a small town and we are really cheap compared to the larger town 0 miles away. There you could expect to pay 3-$500

  • $50 for vaccines!!! The animal clinic I take my dog to charged like $20 and that was for rabies, a full checkup, and I think heartworm meds. Maybe SC is cheap. lol.
