PostSubject: Rat sterilization   Mon 4 Jun - 3:51

Has anyone else Read about this?It sounds like a good idea if it does not cost alot.I know for a dog under 10 pounds at the local low cost place its $45.00 for females and $35.00 for males.They do only dogs and cats.I'd love to get the babies fixed before sending them out in the world.It would be cool if I could do it myself.I'll look online!Sounds like a bad idea.We'll see.(No not for real)

Spaying is anywhere between $80-$200, while neutering is usually under or around $100.

Small animals are much harder to work on for the vet, and take a lot more time and consideration - thus why the prices are higher than dog/cat sterilizing. Make sure to find an EXTREMELY rat-savvy vet - just any ol' dog or cat vet won't do. Rats are exotics and need special care.

I have 13 rats. 10 of them are spayed/neutered, 2 girls are a little too small for the surgery just yet, and my old boy (Mulligan) is way too old. Spaying and neutering is a great thing to do for your animals, especially the females. It greatly reduces mammary tumors and ceases the possibility of pyometra.
