Low-Cost Rabbit Spay – Rabbit Neuter

Windward Animal Hospital has offered a low-cost spay and neuter program for rabbits for several years. As most rabbit owners know, rabbit surgery is a costly procedure with spays and neuters usually costing hundreds of dollars. More importantly, due to the delicate nature and special needs of rabbits, it is of the utmost importance that a rabbit experienced veterinarian performs the procedure.

Dr. Colby from the Windward Animal Hospital has been entrusted to the care of rabbits throughout the state and is the veterinarian for the Georgia House Rabbit Society, a rabbit rescue and shelter located in Cobb County.

Seeing the need for affordable spays and neuters, Windward Animal Hospital has made this commitment which will benefit rabbit enthusiasts and rabbit welfare throughout the state.

Through our Low-Cost program, we currently offer neuters for $150 and spays for $180*

(*Please call to verify the current costs of our low-cost services. The prices can fluctuate depending on the costs of medical supplies & meds).


Please read the letter below from Dr. Stewart Colby for more information about this program or call us with questions or to schedule an appointment.

“I have and continue to work with the Georgia House Rabbit Society of Georgia (GHRS) for several years. In working with them I have found that, while there is any number of programs available for low-cost canine and feline spay and neuter organizations, there are not many options for the rabbit community. Windward Animal Hospital (WAH), with the support of GHRS, is attempting to change that for the residents of the greater Atlanta area.  While the health and social benefits to spaying (ovariohysterectomy) and neutering (castration) rabbits are well documented, most veterinarians are not fully trained or have limited experience associated with rabbit’s health care issues and surgeries. Through vast experience, I believe rabbit health care is more of an art form than an exact science.  Additionally, pet/companion rabbits are just as important to their caregivers as dogs, birds, and cats and deserve the same level of health care.”

— Dr. Stewart Colby

Windward Animal Hospital and Georgia House Rabbit Society are working together to fill a need in the rabbit community at affordable prices while maintaining a level of health care recommended to all rabbit owners.  A full annual evaluation, pre-anesthetic medication, gas anesthesia, spay/neuter, an antibiotic injection, and pain management generally ranges between $300-750. Windward Animal Hospital, with the support and assistance of Georgia House Rabbit Society, offers all the above for $150 to males and $180 for females.

Please call Windward Animal Hospital at (770) 569-7298 to find out which days each month are designated as the “Low-Cost Rabbit Clinic” days.

If physical examination health issues are found which precludes him/her from getting spayed/neutered, the exam cost is $20. The owner would responsible for any additional costs, including medications, which will be discussed before any action is taken. Please call Windward Animal Hospital to schedule an appointment as this program and dates are subject to change at any time. Please feel free to call to address any concerns or questions.

CONSIDERING PURCHASING A RABBIT?

If you are considering a rabbit for a pet, please consider adopting one in need. The Georgia House Rabbit Society has many rabbits at their shelter in need of a permanent home. In addition to helping save a life, their rabbits are already spayed or neutered as well as litter trained!

Calling all Rabbit owners - We need your voice....

On Thursday 8/27/20, The Georgia House Rabbit Society will be speaking to the RHDV-2 task force put together and headed by the State Veterinarian of Georgia. This task force is compiling all of the information from multiple sources to get a clear picture of all rabbit related activity in the state of Georgia.

The reason why this is so very important is because the ONLY vaccines that are being manufactured at this time are NOT AVAILABLE in the United States without a permit to import the vaccine. We need the state veterinarian to sign off this vaccine to bring it to Georgia. We need your voices to help the task force understand how important this is to us so we can save our rabbits!

Beautiful People, meet ✨Zeus✨!
This pocket-sized fella was spotted at a Range Rover dealership on Sunday night, and we’ve been hard at work tracking down his whereabouts since, beating up the premises at dawn and dusk, but he kept eluding us. And the more we learned about his story, the more our hearts broke for him, and we just knew we had to get him!
We were told that he was released with 3 other bunnies at the far end of an apartment complex backing up to the dealership, and that, unfortunately, the other bunnies have not been seen for over 2 weeks 💔 This lil one was chased out of the apartment complex by kids spraying him with a fire extinguisher and, somehow, made his way to the dealership and adjacent businesses. That was over a month ago 😔 How he survived? Not a clue. But this weasely one sure didn’t lack in bravery and street smarts.
The kind crew of the dealership tried to trap him with a live trap with no success, but had been looking out for him, allowing him to take shelter under cars and in the bushes surrounding the property.
Today at 7:52AM, we got the call that changed his life! He was seen out and about, first in the front, then the back of the dealership. We came in flying (where’s teleportation when you need it?!) and told that he was last seen in a patch of bushes by the “Tires & Brakes” place next door.
He was no longer there when we looked, but we were able to track him down! And the adventure began... We teamed up with the dealership peeps to try to catch him... but he was having none of it! 🙈
The chase went on for over 1h and our rescue team fizzled down to 2 people - one of our volunteers, and Aubrey, the MOST FABULOUS Range Rover employee, self-proclaimed animal lover. Rightfully so.
Come ooooooon! Let us catch you little poof!
After 1h20, we were FINALLY able to fence him in under a car and get him to safety. He is now safe and sound, enjoying all the good foods, hay, fresh water and soft blankets... and Aubrey is looking forward to giving him a permanent home. Just YAY!!!!! 🎉🎈🔥
As you may know, we have a quite experienced team of bunny wranglers by now, and it’s been a while since a bunny gave us such a tough time... We are infinitely grateful to all the folks of the dealership and adjacent businesses for watching out for him and working with us so he could finally have the life he deserves. You 👏 are 👏 what 👏 the 👏 world 👏 needs 👏 today. Thank you 🐰🖤

WINDWARD ANIMAL HOSPITAL HOURS & AVAILABILITY UPDATE:

We want to continue to provide the care you have come to expect for your pets while also helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. We would like to take a moment to discuss with you what we know about this virus, and what we are doing to help protect our clients and staff from becoming infected:

First, what we know:

1. The virus is spreading throughout the United States. There are new cases being discovered every day.
2. It preliminarily appears that Dogs and cats are not vector species (carriers) of COVID-19. However, it is always safe to assume there is a risk.
3. The CDC has asked that we practice social distancing. This means only going out to public places when absolutely necessary. It means avoiding close, personal contact whenever possible. It is an effort to slow the spread so that our healthcare system does not become overwhelmed.

Second, what we are doing. Please keep in mind we are already have to operate in a sterile, fully-disinfecting environment as a normal mode of operation, however...

1. We plan to remain open for regular business hours and are still seeing appointments.

2) We are offering and encouraging drop off appointments to help prevent you from having to wait in the waiting room. These can be performed one of two ways -

a) You call us from the parking lot and an assistant will come get your pet and a history. Then, either we can take your pet to the treatment area and you can wait in the parking lot and a doctor (or Vet Tech) will call you after the exam to discuss findings and recommendations or...

b) You can drop your pet off and head home and we will call you there when the doctor has finished their exam.

3. Our staff may be wearing gloves when taking payments or while examining/treating your pets. This is being done in an over abundance of caution to help prevent spread of the virus as it can live on surfaces for a period of time.

4. We will be routinely cleaning door handles, credit card machines, counters and pens throughout the day, along with our normal deep cleaning at the end of every day.

5. VOLUNTEERS: We are limiting our volunteer staff as much as possible. The volunteers that we do have will have to be over the age of 18 or have written parental consent to be here.
-------------------------------------------------
Now, what we are asking of you:
1. Have patience with us during this unusual time. Our primary concern remains the health and safety of everyone in the WAH family - pets and their humans alike.

2. If you have traveled to any affected areas or are in close personal contact with anyone who has, or if you are ill with respiratory symptoms and a fever, please consider rescheduling your appointment if it is not urgent or having a friend who has not been exposed bring your pet on your behalf.
