How Much Does a Dog Leg Amputation Cost?

Amputating a dog’s leg is done when the limb is either damaged due to an accident or if the dog has cancer, severe trauma, disease or a birth defect.  Some owners even consider this procedure if another option is too costly, such as repairing a fractured limb.  The aim of this procedure is to prevent pain and suffering or to prevent cancer, if found, from spreading.  Dogs can, and will, function extremely well when they lose one of their legs and will still continue to run, play and walk without any signs of discomfort or pain.

Amputation will always be the last resort and will be considered to be a radical option by most vets.
