I am in Saskatoon and my dog needs this surgery. My dog is a German Shepherd X about 70 lbs.

She is only 5 and in very good shape. Our vet says she is a very good candidate for the surgery.

I know it is very expensive to have done at the U of S (likely ~$4500). I have heard there are other veterinarians in the city who do the surgery who might be cheaper.

Has anyone had experience with this type of surgery for their dog? I'm just looking for any info to help with this situation.
