Hi JaCustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

Pricing for what you are asking varys widely from not only state to state but also from vet to vet. I've seen some vets charge as little as $15 more and some higher priced vets as much as $100 or more. Your best bet on determining what the additional costs would be is to call a few vets in the area and ask them what the additional charges would be if reparied during the spay procedure.

If going to a low cost spay program, then call the program admistrator and ensure they are set up to do the repair at the same time. Some programs will do the repair and others are not set up to do it, so check in advance. It really is best to have it done with spaying to avoid not only more expensive surgical costs but also to avoid having the pup put under anesthesia more often.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
