Customer Question

Hi, My dog has an anal hernia. The local Vet in Mississauga, Canada is recommending a hugely expensive surgery. I am not sure where else I can get this done. Do you know of a place close to the border in the USA where I can get this done cheaply?

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

A perineal hernia is very likely not going to be a cheap fix no matter who it is that you see.

That being said, I can give you a list of hospitals to call that are right across the border that may be able to give you a rough estimate over the phone for such costs and you can compare that to what your vet has quoted you in Canada. Here are some to try:

City Creatures Animal Hospital

Nickel City Animal Hospital

Buffalo Small Animal Hospital

Checking in, JACustomer. Were any of these clinics able to provide you a better price point?
