    DefaultOntario People...a question/recommendation?

    My neice is the owner of one of my boy Buck's brother. He tore his crutiate ligament on Monday, the vet is giving him a series of shots and has recommended a wait and see regiment for 3-4 weeks. If he is requiring surgery after the wait, it will be somewhere between 2-3 thousand dollars. This is going to be hard on niece. Do any of you know if the Ontario Vetrenary School at the University of Guelph is a little less as far as cost goes? As of now the vet hasn't refered to an Ortho doc, any recommendations?

    I don't think they are any cheaper - I remember another member on here having her dog done there for about $4,500? But she should check anyways, because you never know!

    I'd recommend your neice applying for CareCredit straight away.

    Guelph is very expensive.

    You may opt for a traditional repair which is significantly cheaper. Once the TPLO is done, there are no alternatives, if the traditional 'fishing line' repair is done and doesn't work, you can always pursue the TPLO.

    Traditional is much cheaper and just as effective.

    Third! It really is an amazing facility. Edited to add linky: http://www.vetemergency.ca/

    But they aren't cheap. :-\

    My boss had her australian cattle dog done in the summer, and she said it was around $3000

    Yup, live in Guelph and it is pretty expensive. Now, I heard from a friend today that her golden has a procedure done here (can't remember what type) that was actually cheaper than anywhere else. So maybe it depends on the type of procedure?
    I'd call and ask - I'm sure they'd be able to quote you.

    I also recommend the Mississauga/Oakville Emergency Hospital. Nauga is having his TPLO surgery there in a couple of weeks. His surgeon it Dr Anne Sylvestre. She's one of the best. They don't take carecredit though...I asked...they used something else. I think it was medicard or something.
