My dog needs a few surgeries already, he is only one and a mini australian shep, he has luxating patellas and an elongated soft pallet. How much would surgeries like these cost? AND, Are there certain, say vet schools, or things like this that do surgeries on dogs/cats for just the cost of the anethsia? I am starting to look for help out there now. He needs the soft pallet surgery now. He will need the other surgeries when he is two or older. I love my little boy and just wanted to know if there was anywhere out there that could help a full time student working part time. Its hard when you are basically giving your dog CPR every single night around 2 am.
