|Pain meds and preventative antibiotics often are routinely given for spays and neuters--if you go to your regular vet. Not always, not all vets are on board with this yet, but it's increasingly common and should be encouraged.
It's not common with mobile spay/neuter clinics. It's a contributing factor to why mobile clinics are fairly cheap (they're also heavily subsidized). This is one of the corners you're cutting when you go to a mobile spay/neuter clinic, and for most dogs and cats, most of the time, it's a quite reasonable compromise to make, if you can't otherwise afford the spay/neuter.
Surgical glue is an absolutely appropriate choice, especially for a mobile clinic, where you won't be coming back in because they'll have moved on to the next location.
Seeking veterinary advice if the incision looks bad--I have to agree with both of you. It is common sense, but it is also a good idea for the vet to say it outright, because some people don't have common sense, and some people are too diffident to "complain" if they don't have previous experience with surgical incisions, and aren't sure what it should look like.
