Rates for special cases
Pyometra is an infection of the uterus in female cats and dogs that causes the organ to painfully swell up many times its original size. If not obvious before surgery, pyometra is typically diagnosed during surgery, and the vet will have no choice but to remove the infected organ. Carer(s) or owner(s) will be informed immediately that there will be an unavoidable additional charge on top of the spay surgery, totalling 3,700php in cats and 5,200 in dogs.
The vet team offer neutering in the case of undescended testicles:
Inguinal castration - 1,500php for cats and dogs
Abdominal castration - 2,500php for cats and 3,000php for dogs
Scrotal ablation is offered at 3,000php for dogs (typically needed especially in senior dogs).
walk-ins welcome, no fasting required.

The organising team are independent volunteers active in animal welfare advocacy and stray care. We don't get compensation for time spent designing, organising and facilitating our kapon days.
On top of the vet's rates, we add on 100 - 200 php to cover venue booking and other event organising costs. We rent the venue and use our own equipment and supplies. We often personally sponsor the spay and neuter of stray cats caught by ourselves and our stray feeder friends. We are merely Southies working together as friends and advocates, and are not affiliated with any formal animal welfare organisation. Each kapon day costs us 7,000 to 10,000 php to organise.
Should you like to support us with kapon day, there are a few ways to do so, including contributions at our reception table.
We are a private initiative and reserve the right to deny patrons at our own discretion.
The venue is an open-air covered court. Outdoor tables and seating will be sanitised regularly,
The vet team will be working in a dedicated area.
Prior to crates and carriers being brought to our reception area, the area is disinfected with hydrogen peroxide, which effectively kills feline parvovirus over a curing period of 30mins.
The venue is thoroughly disinfected at the end of kapon day.
Social distancing will be practiced between people and animals, particularly to ensure viruses do not get transmitted from individual to individual. This is supervised and ensured by at least two volunteers inside the venue, alongside Doc Gab's team. Any cats or dogs with clinical symptoms or chronic illness will undergo surgery last as an added precaution.
Our awesome volunteers ensure that each animal is kept clean and cared for while they are anaesthetised.
kapon: spay & neuter
We don’t want pregnancies and new litters.
We want to eliminate the chance of testicular, ovarian and breast cancer as pets get older.
We don’t want our pets to catch or spread contagious parasites or diseases.
Kapon should be accessible! Low-cost kapon options are important.
when to kapon?
6 months or older
In heat a while ago, or are currently in heat
Suspected to be in early-stage pregnancy
Healthy enough to undergo surgery
Individuals should be six months or older and healthy or fit for surgery.
Individuals must have fasted overnight for at least EIGHT hours (no food or water).
Individuals must be in secure carriers, one animal per carrier, lined with pee pads (we can provide pads if needed). The carrier should be able to comfortably accommodate the individual when they are lying down while still under the influence of anaesthesia.
TNVR welcome. For feral individuals, we recommend carriers that are extra secure. Though our venues are either indoors or fenced, we have had escapes in the past while transporting feral strays from e.g. the car to the secure venue.
For freshly-neutered males, cage rest for 1 night.
For freshly-spayed females, cage rest for 1 week.
The objective is to prevent them from physically exerting themselves post-surgery by jumping or running.
After cage-resting, maintain observation for 3 more days.
General anaesthesia may take up to 2 days to wear off completely. Monitor your pet closely or mandate cage rest if you are worried they might still be wobbly and might hurt themselves.
Individuals may have a small meal 4h after getting home,
with meals as normal the next day.
