Just had this done last night for our one year-old lab.

Price was $400 for X-rays PLUS $2400 for the surgery and two-day stay...for a total of $2800. Does this seem reasonable? I was thinking more along the lines of <$2000 total.

Thanks.

It depends on your vet and the general prices in your area. MA is known for having a high cost-of-living, so that might be one factor. Also if you went in after hours, that can sometimes even double the prices. Unfortunately, emergency surgery isn't the sort of thing you can call around to find the best pricing on! Best wishes to your dog for a quick recovery!

My dog had the same surgery. All in all it cost us with tests and all about $2000, a few years ago. We live in NJ.
It was emergency surgery, after hours at an animal hospital. He stayed over one night. It broke my heart to see him like that.
