I don't remember exactly but Bella's spay (the laser type) was less than $180 including bloodwork and a pre-op visit the day before the procedure.

Ours runs about $350 for females and $300 for males, for blood work, surgery, opt op meds and he will do a couple teeth if they need it... that also includes follow ups and stitch removal.. Been a while sin ceI had any done... but that's how much it was for Jason's dogs which were large,a rottie and a shep /lab mix...
Smaller ones are a liitle less

Mine are all chipped but I had that done after spay at the Humane Society for their fund raiser..

Wow to think, when Al and I first got married it was about $35 (1983)and that included everything... we had an old country vet, so shots were $2 , I don't think he ever charged an office call... We rarely walked out with a bill for more than $50 and that was with 5 dogs...
Think the most were ever paid was $90 and that was seeing 5 dogs, spay for two, neuter one and follow up on two others...
I miss those days, and he was in day and night, he lived right above the clinic... covered emergencies and did house calls...

Default Typical cost for spay?

Sophie was spayed 2.5 weeks ago and it would have been around $400 for pre blood work, spay, microchip, anesthesia, post op monitoring and meds, no overnight stay. Thankfully I'm on the Banfeild wellness plan plus and pay $35 a month and get free vet visits ($40 each visit), free shots, 3 free fecal exams, a fee ear swab, free spay, and 10% off anything not included, I've already saved about $2000 on this plan. I payed $53 for microchip and post op meds

Looks like a 5 year old thread got resurrected but it is interesting to compare from 5 years ago to now!

I pulled out Ivy's receipt from her spay earlier this month, 1-10-13, and here was the itemization:

Spay: $80
Gas anaesthesia: $35
Pain meds: $15

Total: $130

Wow, I'm envious of some of these prices I got an estimate for the spay, tooth removal, microchip, etc and its about $650-$700 dependent on the blood work!!!! I thought about calling around, but I love and trust my vet...I have a gut feeling that if I went somewhere else I wouldn't be 100% sure she was safe...surgery is surgry right! Always scary and has risks! But that doesn't mean I'm looking foward to dropping so much :P

Whew, that sounds REALLY high to me but I know prices are lower for just about everything in my corner of the world (central midwest). But it might be worth calling around. You might find someone who will do it more reasonably who you also can trust.

Just a thought (and maybe it was posted about years ago - I haven't gone back to read LOL)....

Before Grace's liver issue... I was planning to get her spayed at the local ASPCA. It's really cheap (compared to a private vet).... and I felt extremely safe letting them do it because they do dozens of surgeries a day on animals of all sizes - even teeny tiny kittens and rabbits (yes they fix rabbits).

So for anyone who gets a really high estimate- consider that as an option. They are great for many things - spay, vaccines, and also training.

Grace's surgery since she required special anesthesia, monitoring, etc - it was around $1200 that isn't including the dew claw removal which was pennies after that basically.

I think I will call around this week and see what I can find....fingers crossed!!!! I would love to have less of a sticker shot so a few hours searching/calling will be well worth it

Grace, the ASPCA is a great suggestion, I hadn't thought about that, which makes me feel silly as I just remembered my best friend took her yorkie there about 3 years back!
