Answered By

A. Prices frequently vary between clinics. Some clinics may not have the 'overhead' costs or may use cheaper products thus passing the savings on to clients. Always make sure a clinic is using proper equipment and monitoring (which can add to costs) on your pet before, during and after any anesthetic procedure.
