Veterinary specialty care is a double-edged sword these days (no pun intended). All major orthopedic procedures are more sophisticated, successful, and less invasive today than they were in the past. These advances come at a cost for the surgeon and client.
- The average cost for a Medial Patella Luxation (MPL) at Colorado Canine Orthopedics in 2016 is $1,980 (unilateral MPL) / $2780 (bilateral MPL) for a typical small breed dogs, which includes pre-surgical X-rays, state-of-the-art anesthesia and the most sophisticated monitoring, epidural, analgesia, arthroscopy when needed, surgery, post-operative X-rays and go home medications (consultation, preoperative blood work and 6 and 12 week X-rays are not included).
At Colorado Canine Orthopedics we are committed to providing only state of the art, non-compromised pet healthcare. We realize some pet owners may find this level of care relatively costly. However, despite the inherently expensive nature of our work, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of care at the most affordable price possible. We believe if you compare our fees to other specialty practices you will find this true.
