How Much Does Dog Tumor Removal Cost?

Removing a dog’s tumor is very similar to the process used to remove a tumor with a human.

Even though a tumor is not necessarily cancer, it can be a sign of cancer or may lead to it.  Whether it is cancerous or not, the tumor may need to be removed for a number of reasons.  There are two types of tumors: benign and malignant.  If it benign, then it is not cancerous; on the other hand, if the tumor is found to be malignant, it will need to be examined and treated for possible underlying metastasis.

Both types of tumors can be removed via surgery, but the main difference is the timing of the surgery.  Because benign tumors do not grow as fast, the surgery is not an immediate necessity.  However, malignant tumors can grow quickly and can spread to other parts of the body and will, therefore, need to be removed as soon as possible.

  1. Me (Denton,  tx) paid $530 and said:

    I tied off my dogs eyelid tumor and it fell off within 2 days. It looks like it was never there. I saw plenty of people online who said not to use this method for various reasons but if this is what they do for newborn babies born with an extra finger it must be safe for my dog. Vet was going to charge $500 for surgical removal and said the tumor would probably come back.

    Was it worth it? Yes
