|If what you can afford is the snip clinic do it. I work at a regular clinic as a tech.
When people can't afford the regular price we tell them its ok to use a snip clinic. We want the dog fixed. Especially females.
When put in that position I just let people know that at our clinic we are probably overly monitoring our patients! They get IV catheters, fluids, blood pressure readings hooked up to a pretty intense monitoring machine, and we have a 1-2 technicians overlooking the anesthesia and recovery pretty much until the animal goes home.
Now I have only worked at the humane society other then my clinic. Humane society is pretty much a high volume snip clinic.
Although all the animals did fine they didn't get as intensely monitored.Pretty much anesthetized, fixed then put in a cage to wake up.
And personally if there is not staff with the dog or cat overnight then I would ask to bring them home!
Regardless of age, or overall health any anesthetic procedure can pose a risk. We have had animals perfectly healthy with normal bloodwork almost die during their surgeries. And thats just something that can happen with any patient.
Now with that being said not every vet clinic runs their surgeries in the safest fashion either.
You can look at it as a risk in general. Your pet needs to be fixed. Do it how you can afford it
