What is the cost of bladder surgery in cats?

My cat needs bladder surgery.


Answer by  mammakat (11147)

In researching various parts of the country, I find the average mean cost to be $600-$800. I have quotes of much less, and substantially more, so I would figure on at least $500. You need to consult your vet to see exactly what your cat requires, and what can be pared off to save costs.

It can get pretty expensive. It really depends on what sort of bladder surgery your cat needs. If it is a more common surgery such as removing stones from the bladder, it can be done by your regular vet for a somewhat reasonable fee but if it is completely blocked, you may need a specialist which can be very pricey.

This surgery will probably run close to between $800.00 to $1,000. It sounds rather steep but when you compare it to human medical bills it's not that much. It covers the operation, the time in the vet for recovery as well as other added extras such as medicine.

Bladder surgery can cost anywhere from $500-$1000. Due to the high cost of such procedures, it is recommended that you get pet health insurance, which can cost as little as $10 a month.

The cost of bladder surgery can vary greatly depending on the severity of your cats condition. Bladder stone removal, for example, generally runs just under $1000. Hospitalization, pain medication, antibiotics, lab tests, and special urinary diets can all affect the price. Also, the quality of medical care makes a difference.

The cost will vary, depending on what kind of procedure is necessary. The charge for anesthesia is based on the cat's weight. Ask your veterinarian for a detail of the projected fees for the service; any vet will advise you beforehand of the expense.


Answer by  aussiegirl (711)

there are many things to factor in including the hospital stay, IV fluids, any medication (including antibiotics and pain releif)while in the hospital and then home, possible complications, ongoing care including diet. Only your vet clinic can give you an indication of how much this will cost as it will vary from clinic to clinic.

The cost to have bladder surgery for a cat cost about $1,000 dollars. This covers all the medicine that is used and the recovery after the surgery


Answer by  Scarlet (100)

If the cat has bladder stones the estimated cost of surgery to remove them would be anywhere between 500-800 dollars. However, it is always wise to get a second opinion.
