Is your dog ready to be spayed or neutered?


All dogs spayed and neutered at ICVS will receive an official spay/neuter certificate that entitles the owner to a discount of up to 50% (e.g., RMB 500.00) on the initial dog registration fee and up to 40% discount  (RMB 200.00) on the licensing renewal fee at the Public Security Bureau.

ICVS is delighted to provide the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) for all pets that are rabies vaccinated at ICVS. The official vaccination red book is required to renew dog licenses, relocate to other cities and to take pets out of China.
