Cat Neutered How much??

I have a 1yr old brown and white tabby male cat. How much is he going to cost to get neutered? I don't have a job and I am coming from overseas to the states. I hear some places cost $100's and some cheap buck$??

Also I had another question but I lost it........ Oh! I remembered. It was about his microchip. I am not sure if any of you know if it is possible to change information from another countries information ? Right now, I have his shots, rabies, and my home/keitai number (cell). when I get back into the states, I need to change this information to English. I am assuming that it isn't an issue

Re: Cat Neutered How much??

Neutering prices can vary. It also depends on the options you choose...it is recommended to do pre-surgical blood testing, but it's not required. Also whether you elect pain management. etc. Here are some links for low cost neutering:

The microchip will depend on whether you have an international chip, some chips cannot be read by readers all over the world. You will need to contact the chip company and find out whether their chips can be read by the equipment used in the US and how to change the info.

Ah, thanks for the help Near my parents place, there is a vet and I called today and it will cost $83. There is a Humane Society on the other side of town but I am not sure how much they charge there?

I had my female cat spayed at a Humane Society and it cost $35 (I believe the price sheet said that neutering was $30), but I don't know if my HS would be different than the one near your parents.

Re: Cat Neutered How much??

I would venture to guess that those kinds of prices (at both places, humane societies are typically much less expensive than private vets) are for the surgery only and no extras. Human Societies are not affiliated with each other, so it could very well be different, not all humane societies even offer the service (ours doesn't).

The other thing to be aware of when using one of these cheaper services is that it's possible the procedure may be done by a tech rather than a vet. In NH, techs can do neuters but not spays. Our HS has a tech doing the boys and only brings in a vet for the girls (for the cats they adopt out, as I said, they don't provide the service to the public). I'm sure the techs do a great job, but if something should go wrong (with anesthesia for example) the time it takes to get a vet in the room may have consequences.

Re: Cat Neutered How much??

Humane Societys are independent of each other. So pricing will be different in each city. Some get grants which off set the cost of S/N. Some places which are totally dedicated to S/N of cats and dogs work off grants and they will occasionally do a free S/N for a month. You have to check around in your home town.
