Talk to your vet and ask why he wants to keep him overnight and express your concerns.
With my animals, we drop them off in the morning and he does the procedure within a couple hours. Then I pick them up later in the day once they are fully awake and functioning normally. It may be possible that your vet likes to do his surgeries later in the day and allow the animals to rest overnight.
Never be afraid to ask your vet questions as to why they want to do what they are saying. Just like with yourself and your family, you want to know every possible solution and outcome.
