Affordable Spay/Neuter Surgery For All

Anicira Veterinary Center of San Diego provides excellent and affordable spay/neuter surgeries to every pet who walks through the doors. We opened this clinic to address the lack of access to affordable veterinary care in Southern California.

Preventive care services such as vaccinations, testing, and microchipping are also available at the time of surgery. The center follows the recommendations of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and the National Spay/Neuter Response Team to provide high-quality medicine backed by the most recent science.
