WOOF! Canada seems really expensive! We weren't recommended for chemo or radiation; however, I did talk to an oncologist re: radiation before we got our histopathology report back, and it was quoted at $25,000. Yes. $25,000. 

Amputation Costs

  • What city/state/country/date did your Tripawd have the amputation? - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
  • Total cost of surgery? - $7000 CAD which included the one-night ICU stay, all drugs taken during the stay, and the histopathology report (+$4k for the MRI and ultrasound, few hundred on meds, $2K on various consultation fees, $1k on a few different sets of x-rays)
  • Private practice or teaching hospital? - private practice

Chemotherapy Costs - N/A

WOAH! That is a ton of money for chemo! This is so good for us to know. I'm glad you didn't need to make that decision about doing it. Yikes.

The amputation costs sounds similar to here when the conversion is factored in ($7k CAD is $5443).
