Cost of Hip Dysplasia Treatments

Cost of hip treatments for dogs at Colorado Canine OrthopedicsVeterinary 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.

  • Canine Double Pelvic Osteotomy
    The average cost of a Canine Double Pelvic Osteotomy at Colorado Canine Orthopedics in 2014 is $2,980 - $3,180 which includes pre-surgical x-rays when needed, anesthesia and monitoring, epidural, surgery, post-operative x-rays and go home medications (4 week post operative x-rays are not included).
  • Total Hip Replacement 
    The average cost of Total Hip Replacement at Colorado Canine Orthopedics in 2014 is $4,380 - $4,680 but may vary depending on the patient’s size. The cost includes pre-surgical x-rays, anesthesia and monitoring, epidural, surgery, post-operative x-rays and go home medications (4 week post-operative x-rays are not included). THR remains one of the most successful, highest cost and lowest profit margin procedures done at CCO. The implants alone are quite expensive.

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.

Payment Options
We request payment when services are rendered. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards and of course accept cash and personal checks. If payment at the time of surgery causes undo financial hardship, payment plans are available. Thank you for allowing us to offer the same level of care for your pet as we would for our own.
