If your dog has suffered a torn or ruptured cranial cruciate ligament injury, you may be starting to look for surgical options and you’re probably also starting to wonder about the cost. Most knee surgeries in dogs can cost as low as $800 all the way up to $3,000+.
The cost to repair the CCL in a dog (equivalent of an ACL in humans), will fluctuate based on the state that you live in, the experience of the surgeon, the weight of the dog, the invasiveness & complication level of the surgery, etc.
Through my experience, and from talking to a few of my friends whose dogs had cranial cruciate ligament repair surgeries, I believe that you should expect to spend somewhere in the range of $1,500. You may end up paying a little more or less depending on the above criteria, but go in expecting somewhere around $1,500.
Don’t forget about the “hidden” costs of a cranial cruciate ligament repair surgery.
