Sterilization in vet.

So, a new vet opened in the city and I asked how much a sterilization surgery cost. Guess what, over 60% less than in the other vets. The thing is, they told me that there was no need for a visit to check if she was OK (she goes to a different vet every 6 months). She is 1yo and 5kg. I don't know if I should trust. I visited their surgery room and everything looked fine and I hear good things about this vet. My question is: is it OK to sterilize a dog without a visit to the vet some days before?!

i never taken to vet. first, just in on day.
Vet fees are 190 AU dollar every visit! Why pay 190 for what?
The vet will examine dog pre op anyhow.

Majority of our vets here don't need to see your pet before the spay/neuter. Just book the appointment, they do quick pre-check before surgery and then start.

If you had a breed known for having issues going under anaesthetic I would be more concerned about going in and having health/any concerns addressed in advance.

Hmmm, I would want a pre-op exam, including blood values, so there would be less of a chance of surprises, during the anesthesia and surgical process.
