i think an answer from a professional in this field would be good. i do not think a puppy 6 months old after being spayed should be left unattended for a period of 12 hours. i would like to know what the policy is in other vet offices. i would also like to know why there is an additional charge for pain medication...i will be paying $550.00 for a spay,i.d. tatoo, . is this normal or am i being overcharged. there is no supervision of the puppy after surgery. i live in a small town in northern ontario.
