How Much Does Hernia Surgery for Dogs Cost?

Hernia surgery for a dog is a procedure performed to remove a hernia in a dog, a condition that occurs when there are holes in the body’s muscle wall.  This condition usually happens naturally or it can be caused by a torn muscle, which allows the intestine and other internal organs to pass through.  If it is diagnosed early, a hernia can be fixed by performing surgery.    The most common symptoms may include noticeable pain, vomiting, depression or a lack of appetite.

There are different types of dogs that can have hernias, but there are certain breeds that are more prone to this condition.  For example, the Poodle, Dachshund, Basset Hound, Chihuahua and Maltese are a few breeds known to get hernias from time to time.

The price for this type of surgery depends on the vet that will perform the surgery, the complexity of the situation, the inclusions in the bill and geographical location.
