So, I rescued two puppies off the street. Which is about the most expensive way to do it, I'm quickly learning. I'll never sniff at rescued pet adoption fees ever ever again. Anyway... they're about due to get neutered. The vet that I'm currently taking the dogs to gave me a quote for their neuters, which is going to run approx. $700 for the pair (is an overnight visit, and the dogs are inseparable, so they'll both go at the same time). This includes some pre-op bloodwork, additional pain meds, and microchipping while they're under. (This vet installs the same microchip that my cats already have, so updating will be easier.) She did say they weren't the least expensive option, and that low-cost clinics were something that we could consider. Low-cost clinic will be between $200-300 for both dogs. I've adopted cats before, and taken them to the low-cost clinic, and they seemed to suffer no ill effects... Is it worth the extra coin for all the extra stuff (bloodwork, meds, overnight)?
