    lol so long as she is healthy right? Well if there are only 2 that explains the price I am guessing. Maybe check outside your area? If it saves you thousands, it could be worth a drive and hotel even? Just a thought. So long as it is a known bully vets that is.

    Just an update... Belly's ACL is definitely torn Surgery is next Thursday morning. I'm going to make her a dog tag with a diamond in it... The estimate is $4300-$4900..that included an adavant (or something like that) shot 2 x's a week that they did a study and it reduces the chance of it tearing again to a 95% success and laser treatments...she is definitely my diamond girl They might have to clip her soft palate while they have her under also. I'm so happy that the surgeon used to work with bully rescue and has done scads of these surgeries. I feel like she's in the best possible hands, but I'm still scared crapless

    You should get her a car too, I'm sure you can get a really good one with that price.

    It's too bad she tore her ACL, but it's fantastic that your vet is very experienced with this type of surgery. I'm glad the extras are part of your bill, that makes more sense, instead of the surgery only.

    With you too on being scared and stressed, we're all here to help you calm your nerves. :hugs:

    Will be praying for a smooth surgery and a quick and uneventful recovery.

    I'm so sorry Belly's ACL is torn. It sounds like you're in good (but, wow, expensive) hands. Wishing you lots of luck and I hope Belly has a speedy recovery. I'm not an expert by any means, but if there's anything you want to compare with Oliver's surgery and recovery, don't hesitate to ask. Hugs!
