Parkside Veterinary Hospital is proud to take part of the Friends of Animals Spay and Neuter Program. That means, if you purchase a discounted certificate from Friends of Animals, it can be used for your pet's spay or neuter here! *

spay and neuterWe joined this program to make spaying and neutering more affordable. There are many benefits to the procedure for your pet and the community. For example, spaying and neutering reduces the risk of breast cancer, testicular cancer, uterine disease and behavioral problems. Learn more here.


To qualify for the Friends of Animals program at Parkside Veterinary Hospital, pets must be:

  • At least 5 months old
  • Up to date on rabies and distemper vaccines with verifiable paperwork if not done at Parkside Vet
  • Examined by Parkside Vet staff with pre-surgical bloodwork done within a month of procedure (or with verifiable paperwork if done elsewhere)

In addition, all animals must go home with pain medication the day of the surgery and be seen back at our hospital 10-14 days for a follow-up.

We strongly suggest you purchase an e-collar to prevent your pet from reaching their incision site. Other additional recommended treatments include the AVID microchip and laser therapy.

Call us at (518) 463-0418 with any questions or to schedule your pet's pre-surgical exam. We will advise you on the best time to spay or neuter your pet. Then, you may purchase the voucher through the Friends of Animals website here.
