Tumor & mass removal can be very expensive. In fact, for many pet owners, it’s not even possible. That’s why we’ve made it our goal to provide tumor removal affordably.
We’ve helped our clients save hundreds to thousands of dollars on dog tumor and mass removal.
Affordable Tumor Removal Consultations
Before we can give you an exact quote, we need to figure out what type of tumor your pet has. This decides whether or not surgery is necessary, as well as what the tumor means for the health of your pet.
We provide affordable tumor removal consultations at only $25. If you’ve been quoted a price by another clinic, we also offer “2nd opinion exams” at only $15. Our 2nd opinion exams allow you to easily see if we can provide a more affordable option that works with your budget.
From cancer growths to warts, mass removal for dogs and cats can be very expensive at many clinics across Dallas-Fort Worth. With our surgical setup and staff experience, we can provide affordable tumor and mass removal at much lower prices than other clinics in DFW.
How Much Does Mass Removal Cost?
The price of tumor and mass removal in dogs and cats depends on the location of the mass. It also depends on the type of mass, what we think it is, the condition of the pet, and your pet’s situation. Because of these factors, we can’t provide an estimate without seeing your pet.
We have seen many pets for tumor and mass removals; and can generally keep the surgery quite affordable and in the $300 – $1000 range.
Why is the range so large? How can I know exactly how much the surgery will cost for my pet?
We see a huge variety of cases when it comes to tumors & masses. For example, we have removed tumors almost 1/4 the size of some pets or the size of a leg on a pet! Others can be smaller, such as smaller paw growths that we have removed. Placement matters a lot too – for example, tumors coming from areas with more blood vessels, like the mammary glands, can take more time to remove than from the back.
The type of tumor is also important. Finally, the pet’s general health, condition, and well being need to be taken into consideration. All of these reasons are why we recommend coming in for a tumor removal consultation first.
We price tumor removal surgeries primarily off of the time the surgery will take. However, this varies due to the tumor’s size and where it is.
Our tumor removal consultations are no obligation! They’re meant to provide you with information, and also an affordable option for your pet’s mass removal. First we’ll discuss your pet’s mass, then provide an estimate.
We provide very affordable office visits for your no-obligation consult & estimate visit. We also provide payment plans through Scratchpay for more complex mass and tumor removals.
What You Should Know Before Surgery
We see many types of tumors or masses in dogs and cats. Some are benign, and won’t cause your pet any problems. Others, though, could be cancerous. What is the likelihood your pet has cancer?
Well, cancer is extremely common in dogs. In fact, cancer is the most common cause of death for older dogs. Tumors can be a sign that your pet has cancer, but dogs can also get lumps and bumps that don’t mean anything at all.
The most common types of tumors or masses that we see include:
- Mast Cell Tumors. Most common in short-faced dogs such as boxers, french bulldogs, or pugs. Mast cell tumors are usually itchy and red.
- Lipomas. A benign and common type of tumor, lipomas are masses underneath the skin. They’re typically soft and harmless.
- Cysts. Cysts are different from tumors, in that they’re sacs filled with some material such as air or fluid. (Whereas tumors are just abnormal tissue masses). We also provide biopsies to determine if cysts are benign or malignant.
During your consultation, we try to give you an idea of what type of tumor your pet has, and what that means for your pet. We may also recommend a histopathology, where we send in a bit of tissue from the tumor in to a lab, to get more information about the tumor. Generally, we recommend doing this after the tumor removal surgery, in order to avoid excess expense and having the pet under anesthesia more than necessary (placement and other factors play into this as well).
