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.
Cost for a Medial Patella Luxation (MPL):
The average cost of MPL repair at Colorado Canine Orthopedics is $1,980 (unilateral MPL) - $2,980 (bilateral MPL) for a small to medium sized dogs.
About MPL Repair Fees:
- All surgery fees include pre-surgical x-rays, anesthesia and monitoring, nerve block, post-operative x-rays (day of surgery) and go home medications.
- Consultation, pre-operative bloodwork and 6-12 week post-operative 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.
