How Much Does a Cat Leg Amputation Cost?

A cat leg amputation is performed when a cat either has a disease or a significant leg injury and the leg is no longer mobile .  After a leg amputation, cats will surprisingly revert back to their old ways, sometimes not even knowing a leg is missing.  Most cats will not suffer mentally.  An amputation on a cat can be performed on all breeds, no matter what the age is.  The cost of the amputation is going to vary depending on the severity of the issue, the veterinarian performing it, geographical location and if any other tests are required.

Was it worth it?  

  1. Melissa (Torrance,  Ca) paid $1,500 and said:

    I have no money and no idea how I am going to pay this…
    They had no payment options but agreed to let me pay 100/2 weeks
    It’s not worth paying so much to still see your cat struggle to get around..
    They did a horrible job, I regret ever taking him, I’m sorry my cat..

    Was it worth it? No

  2. HM (Hodgenville,  Kentucky) paid $300 and said:

    Vet said he would do it for $300 but try to save us some money.(I forget the exact dollar amount after sax and such). He did not do some sort of blood work, only tested for feline-leukemia since the surgery would be pointless if the kitten was only going to die not long after that. The kitten had to stay over the week end at the vet for recovery and because they were closed on weekends. It was a rushed decision because his bandaging would not come off and it would only get worse due to that. Kittens have a higher risk since they are small and could go into shock or lose too much blood.

    Being a kitten, he was kinda forced to adapt but had time. He has a permanent limp but gets around fine and will still move the leg on occasion(really there is only shoulder left due to keeping just a bit for the ribs to be protected).

    Was it worth it? Yes
