Since its inception back in May 2010, Brownsville Spay Neuter has helped our Brownsville community by sterilizing over 20,000 pets and applying over 50,000 Rabies vaccines.
We’ve micro-chipped over 20,000 pets. Since each microchip is recorded in our own in-house database, we work closely with the Brownsville Animal Regulations and Care Center (BARCC) to reunite lost pets with their owners.
We also work hand-in-hand with the local PAWS rescue group. Most of the kittens that are up for adoption that you see at each of the valley’s four PetSmarts (McAllen, Harlingen, Brownsville) have spent time in the cattery we have exclusively for them in the building. They leave here sterilized, healthy, and ready to meet their future family.
As a non-profit, we strive to keep the cost to our customers as low as we responsibly can . We hope that will encourage families to keep their pets up-to-date with their vaccines, healthy, and happy.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
How We Provide Care
SPAY NEUTER SURGERIES
Call us (956) 550-8366
or send us an email
(by appointment only).
If your pet is older than 5 years old, we may require a further physical exam and blood testing to be performed before the surgery to ensure your pet's safety.
We highly recommend pets be neutered before they turn 6 months old.
By having your pet sterilized you are helping the RGV community prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Spaying and Neutering helps protect against some serious health problems and may help reduce behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct (roaming and marking)
Spay-neuter surgery has no effect on a pet's intelligence or ability to learn, play, work, or hunt.
Some pets tend to better behave following the surgery making them more desirable companions.
PET WELLNESS & NON EMERGENCY CONSULTATIONS
Even when your pet is healthy, Pet Wellness Exams are vital. When treated early, there are issues that can be quickly and cheaply solved, which is why we’re committed to practicing preventative care at our Veterinary Clinic. Any other non emergency reason you need to come by, please call ahead to make appointments for our limited consultation slots.
VACCINATION AND HEARTWORM TESTING
Your time is valuable, that is why our clinic has a walk in vaccines and heartworm testing services section. There is no office fee for this, there is usually little to no wait time and you can walk out happy knowing your animal is fully vaccinated and heartworm free. We’re committed to your pet’s health and will always do our best to treat and heal animals in pain.
Many states require an up-to-date Certificate of Veterinary Inspection from a licensed, accredited veterinarian when traveling. Your pet must be examined by a veterinarian in order for a health certificate to be issued. This certificate basically indicates your pet is healthy to travel and is not showing signs of a disease that could be passed to other animals or to people. Certain vaccinations must be up to date for a health certificate to be issued. As part of the exam, your veterinarian may check for heartworm disease and prescribe heartworm preventative medication. When you return home, your veterinarian may recommend a follow-up examination to make sure that your pet did not pick up any diseases or parasites while traveling.
Whether the preventive you choose is given as a pill, a spot-on topical medication or as an injection, all approved heartworm medications work by eliminating the immature (larval) stages of the heartworm parasite. This includes the infective heartworm larvae deposited by the mosquito as well as the following larval stage that develops inside the animal. Unfortunately, in as little as 51 days, heartworm larvae can molt into a juvenile/immature adult stage, which cannot be effectively eliminated by preventives. Because heartworms must be eliminated before they reach this adult stage, it is extremely important that heartworm preventives be administered strictly on schedule (monthly for oral and topical products and every 6 months for the injectable). Administering prevention late can allow immature larvae to molt into the adult stage, which is poorly prevented.
We carry Triheart and Advantage Multi
FLEA AND TICK PREVENTION
Fleas and ticks are two of the most frequent pet care concerns in America. While prevention is the best defense against these parasites, it’s important to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of fleas and ticks so you can help your pets if necessary.
Fleas are the most common external parasite to plague companion animals. They are wingless insects that feed on blood, can jump up to two feet high, and are persistent in the environment.
Ticks are parasites that feed on the blood of unlucky host animals, such as cats and dogs. Like mites and spiders, ticks are arachnids. Although their presence may not even be noticed by the host, ticks can transmit many diseases through their bite.
