Friend, prices vary tremendously between veterinary clinics. The cost involved removing a tumor of the mammary gland can be expensive because of the preanesthetic blood work, xrays of the chest, anesthesia, surgical procedure, post op meds, biopsy, etc. You are looking around $1,200-1,500 dollars. The best option is getting a written estimate from the veterinary clinic that will be doing the procedure.
