For cats, a tattoo or a notch (v-shaped cut on the tip of the left ear - recommended for feral or outdoor cats) will be used as a mark of the procedure done.
An ear notch or a tattoo on a cat's ear allows us to physically identify if the cat has been spayed/neutered sparing it from unnecessary surgeries in the future.

*Additional P1,000 for purebred dogs
*Additional P2,000 for use of gas anesthesia
*Additional P300 for pregnant cats and dogs
*Additional P500 for male dog with abdominal castration (undescended testicle/s)

Gas/inhalant anesthesia is recommended in certain instances, including but not limited to the following:
- older patients
- patients with underlying medical conditions
- brachycephalic patients (Boxer, Shihtzu, Pug, Boston Terrier, Bulldog, etc.)
- non-routine and/or potentially complicated surgical procedures
- routine procedures with complications (undescended testicles, pyometra spay, etc.)
It becomes the maintenance anesthetic of choice because it facilitates faster anesthetic recovery soon after surgery.
General health status and fitness for surgery is assessed based on blood tests and a physical examination.
The blood tests (complete blood count, kidney and liver function tests) are highly recommended (often mandatory) for dogs/cats that are four years old and above; the tests are optional for younger animals that are apparently healthy and have no underlying medical condition.
