Oh I sent send too early.

$70 is extremely cheap for a spay. I personally think this is one of those situations where you get what you pay for. I wouldn't really trust someone charging less than $70.

Luna's spay and microchip was $350. I think $70 for a spay is a very decent price.

70 is not bad at all!! Considering how small they are. Koda was 1.5lbs when she got spayed and I paid for short- acting anesthesia and the pre testing blood work! It was over 300. ESP for a neuter 70 seems way underpriced!

It depends on where you go. Stella's was exceptionally cheap but the service was wonderful. The place has a stellar reputation.
That particular clinic relies on lots of donations in order to provide free/low cost services. I'd go back.
Not to say that any cheap spay available is something I'd recommend, but there are definitely some great programs out there that can be a great help to pet owners.

It cost me $300 for Chance. And if you add in the extra $200 for complications, it was $500. Here there are places that offer low cost options, but it runs about $80.

I paid 80 (plus meds) for my pet rat to get spayed. I found a way to do so at 15. No job. No money. I still found a way to gather that money because it was for her sake.

70 is very reasonable for a dog. They use a lot more anesthetic.

You should not keep pets if you can't offer basic care. Vet services vary place to place and I am lucky my vet is so reasonable, but it is still your job to alter or otherwise prevent litters unless they are planned. (health checks, etc,)

I agree that it's a pet owner's responsibility to prevent unwanted litters. However, OP rescued Papi from a dangerous situation and probably wasn't planning on having to alter their female right away.
