How Much Does a Dog Tail Amputation Cost?

A dog tail amputation procedure is the process of surgically removing part or all of the dog’s tail that’s damaged or diseased beyond salvage.  This can be done for a variety of reasons, but it’s most commonly done when a severe wound, an infection or tumor is present.

This procedure is done to prevent pain and suffering by removing the tail or to help prevent the spread of cancer if a tumor were found.  While considered an extreme situation, it will almost always be the last resort taken by a professional vet.

The tail, which is the end of the dog’s spine, is full of nerves, and if your dog were to injure it, it could cause quite a bit of pain, often calling for an amputation.
