What you need to know BEFORE and AFTER your appointment...




SOS of Ohio is dedicated to providing high-quality veterinary services at an affordable price. Income verification is not required to receive General Public Pricing. Please note that animals are only eligible for additional services on the day of their spay or neuter surgery.


Payment is required in full at the time of pick up. We accept cash and Visa/MasterCard/Discover for a $2 fee.


If you are a representative of a nonprofit animal rescue group, please see our FOR RESCUE GROUPS section for special pricing for nonprofits.

Pain Management


We believe that no animal should go without pain medication which is why we provide two forms of pain control the day of surgery.  We strongly encourage all owners to purchase additional pain medications to go home with their pet in addition to what is provided at the hospital.



Additional pain medication is also available by request for $10



E-Collars are available at pick up for an additional $5.  

E-Collars are plastic cones that go over an animal's head to keep them from licking or biting at their incision. While some animals are interested in licking, and some are not, an e-collar may be the only way that you will know for sure that they will not have access to their incision. Licking and biting can lead to infection or, in the case of female animals, allow them to open their incision which leads directly into their abdominal cavity.






The following services are ONLY available at the time of surgery.






Rabies: $7

We require all animals 12 weeks of age and older to receive a rabies vaccination the day of their surgery unless proof of a current rabies vaccination is shown at drop off. Proof can either be in the form of a dated rabies certificate or a shot record from your regular veterinarian's office. A rabies tag is not sufficient proof of a current rabies vaccination.



For Dogs

Distemper/Parvo Combination Vaccination: $10

Bordatella (Kennel Cough) Vaccination: $10

Distemper Vaccination: $10

Feline Leukemia Vaccination: $10

The Feline Leukemia Vaccination can only be given with proof of a negative result on a Feline Leukemia test.

Feline Leukemia/FIV/Heartworm Combination Test: $22








Capstar: $5

Capstar will be given automatically to all animals on which a flea is seen. Capstar kills fleas almost immediately and can be used in conjunction with topical flea treatments and preventatives. Capstar is used to limit the transfer of fleas from one animal to another and to create a sterile environment for surgery.

Dogs: $10

Revolution: one month topical flea prevention, ear mites, some intestinal parasites

       Cats: $5

  Cestaject injection: $10 (tapeworms) Cats only

All animals receive a basic medical exam from one of our veterinarians. Exam charges are typically only assessed in instances when an animal comes to the clinic and does not receive surgery.






HomeAgain Microchip, including life-long registration: $25






Antibiotics may be recommended if signs of infection are seen in your animal. If infection is noted, we will recommend that your animal go home with antibiotics. Antibiotics are typically between $10 - $15. Examples of infections that may be noted during your animal's preliminary exam or during surgery include: ear infections, skin infections, uterine infections, upper respiratory infections, etc.



(back to top)





Kittens and puppies can be spayed or neutered as early as 3 months of age and at a weight of 3 pounds or more.




If one of our veterinarians assesses your animal to be a Senior Animal, there may be an additional charge of up to $20.00. This charge covers the cost of extra precautions given to animals of advanced age to ensure their safety and proper recovery. We strongly recommend Pre-Surgical Bloodwork for Senior Animals prior to surgery. A CBC and chemical profile can be done through your regular vet or may be available through SOS of Ohio.




SOS of Ohio reserves the right to deny surgery to animals that are deemed overweight or not healthy enough for surgery by one of our veterinarians. If an animal does not receive surgery, there will be a $15 exam fee assessed. This fee is refundable when the animal returns for surgery. In most cases, we will provide low-cost treatment of the illness if we are able.
