My regular vet is part of a 10-vet practice, and she doesn't do knee surgeries - but she very highly recommended one of her partners, so that's who we used. He was just awesome - so attentive, calling many times after the surgery to check in about Wylie for the first several weeks.

If I recall, I think his surgery was around $1500, take or give a little. So, not outrageous compared to some things - but def not a drop in the bucket! Our Wylie is our "million dollar dog" bc he has spent so much of our money ! But he is totally worth every penny, of course, and more. He's priceless.
