Good luck. Bronx had his 2 week follow and got his staples removed yesterday. The Dr. said he was healing well.

and tomorrow i have some one coming to look at my motorcycle i had to place on sale so if all goes well bailey will be back in the vet soon to get the surgery ......fingers crossed .....and also i looked in to care credit i got the ok for 1500 from them.


With such a dramatic price difference, ask a LOT of questions about why... I recently heard of a vet in Minnesota who lost his license after performing an orthopedic procedure without ANY pain medications... as in most things in life, you often get what you pay for...


The reason they are so different cost wise is that the tools and the parts for the TTA cost waaaay more than the tools used for the traditional suture repair. I believe at our clinic the traditional repair is in the $1200-$1500 range depending on the size of the dog and the TTA is in the $2500 range. The TTA is a lot more of an involved surgery and takes more time to complete also so that is why you will see such a variation in pricing usually. But I definitely agree you need to check out your vets thoroughly and that sometimes you do get what you pay for.

That is awesome you were able to have the surgery done for your pup, he's so lucky to have you!!!!

Wishing Bailey a smooth recovery! Fill up some kongs with yogurt or lowfat cottage cheese mixed with some treats and freeze them - that will help keep him happy :)

Do you have a sling to help him to go potty and support him? If you don't use a folded towel under his belly.

:teardrops: I'm so terribly sorry, my heart aches. Bailey knew how much you loved and cared about him.

Run free Bailey.
