How Much Does Dog ACL Repair Surgery Cost?

A common surgery done to many dogs is the dreaded ACL surgery.  These injuries happen more often with dogs than with humans, and the problem with an ACL injury is that most dogs won’t have a history of trauma.

This surgery is generally done when the ACL or the CCL is torn.  While there are many alternatives to help your dog cope with the pain, the cost of the ACL surgery will vary depending on the size of the dog, the surgeon performing the surgery and geographical location.
