|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Neutering Clinic in Maryland/DC?

Sorry for the long hiatus. Once again, medical school is taking it's toll on my free time. We're also closing on a house tomorrow, so there's that bit of chaos tossed our way. Achilles is growing nice and big (he'll be seven months next week, holy crap!). Given that, we are looking to get him neutered soon (preferrably in the next month some time.) Do any of you have recommendations for where to go in the Maryland/DC area? Our vet wants to keep him overnight and to charge $450(!), so we're thinking of going to a clinic instead. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance! Here's a picture of Achilles bummed that we ran out of ice cream.

If you're willing to make the trek up here, our vet is significantly cheaper. I don't remember exactly how much, but they generally don't keep them overnight and the whole staff there is wonderful.
ETA: $290-320 depending on if he's over 50 lbs or not, but they have to do an exam first since you don't normally go there. Those are $60, but there are 20% off coupons floating around online, and since you're military you get 10% off on all services except meds. Bayside Animal Medical Center in Severna Park.

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been." -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

I'm at the DC/VA/MD border and if you go through the local animal shelter and purchase the spay/neuter voucher it cuts the cost significantly and does not require an overnight stay, but does not cover medication, which is usually $40-60.
I just called the shelter and two vets off the top of my head that participate prices are for 40-60 lbs weight range:
$217 hayfield vet ($60 office visit)
$115 hybla valley vet (I don't believe they charge for first visit)
There is a big book of other participating vets to choose from, but all the rates are different.
I'm taking Hayden to the vet today and I'll ask my vet (Caring Hands Vet) how much they charge.

Thanks Meredith and Kelly! We were also considering using a local neuter clinic, what have you guys heard about those in the area, if anything?
