Something bad happened to my dog. The area right under her knee is broken
The vet says that it is fixable but the surgery cost is anywhere between
1800 - 2400, or I could choose to amputate that leg of hers for $950 (which
I am not willing to). What type of surgery is this and they mentioned that
there are several types of surgery for this and I wasn't sure what they
talked about. They referred me to several other hospitals but has anyone
here happened to have experience this?
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Howdy Worried One,
My male Saluki broke his front leg just above the wrist. My vet did
the Kershner(sp?=BF) procedure. 2 pins below the break in the bone and 2
above the break in the bone and all 4 pins attached to a metal plate
that is about an inch away from the bone. Surgery cost about $950 USD.
But with about 6 months of visits it ended up about $2500. My Guy is a
competitive runner and is completely healed and is running like nothing
happened. I just hope he can get through the running season healthy.
Hope everything turns out ok for you.
