    Well, that's not what it was. Turns out it's a "very bad" case of OCD.

    Cost of the surgery on the one leg is $3500. Does that sound right?

    OMG....I'm interested in how he was diagnosed with the OCD. My Baxter has an appointment on the 12th, with the orthopedic surgeon as my Vet is calling his progressive limp of his right shoulder OCD. I've been dealing with this since April and it's getting worse. The surgeons office said to keep him NPO the morning of the appointment because if the Dr. wants to do surgery, they will do it right then.
    I'm so worried about him. He's only 4, but can't even go for a nice walk without coming home and limping and struggling afterwards. Ughhhhh, very frustrating. How old is your pup?

    Excellent explanation of OCD. I thought it was about my Max with a tennis ball .

    IMO, $3500 is way too much.

    OCD in the shoulder or Hock?

    $3500 is a bit pricey in my opinion. I paid $2200 for OCD in the hock, which is the worst place to get it in a dog.

    If a boarded surgeon is doing it, and you're near a metropolitan area, then yeah I'd say that's about right. I would bet it's at least that (probably more) at Penn.

    I would say it depends on what part of the country she's in. I was quoted $2500-$4000 for Tide when they didn't know what her issue was. They thought either OCD of the knee or torn CCL. Needless to say, we spent about $3200 all said and done for her partially torn cruciate. So no, IMO, it doesn't sound that high but, I live in an area where everything is expensive.
