Spay and Neuter Loyalty Program

To show our thanks to our loyal clients with young pets who have completed their recommended vaccination program here at the North Peace Veterinary Clinic (a minimum of 2 vaccine and wellness exam visits here at the clinic), our veterinary care team is offering a 10% appreciation discount for your puppy or kitten's spay or neuter, pre-surgical bloodwork and identification options (tattoo and/or microchip) done on the day of surgery.  Sterilization at 6 -12 months of age not only prevents pet overpopulation, but also helps to prevent many health issues such as cancer and infections of the reproductive system. The surgery must be performed before 1 year of age to qualify for the discount, and we strongly encourage that it is performed at 6 months of age to maximize the health benefits. This is a small token of our appreciation to your family, and a thank-you for entrusting your pet's past and future veterinary care needs with us.  Call us today at 250-785-4578. We encourage you to book an appointment soon as our surgery schedule tends to fill quickly, especially in the spring.
