How Much does a Prosthetic Leg for a Dog Cost?


Here at Bionic Pets, our goal is always to help each animal regain their health, happiness, and mobility. This may seem impossible for a dog that has lost a limb, but it is not! We want to discuss the idea of a prosthetic leg for a dog with you today in order to help you decide if your pet is an ideal candidate for one.


What is a Prosthetic Leg for a Dog?

When a person is either born without a leg or loses a leg in an accident, they have the opportunity to regain their mobility with a prosthetic leg. Thanks to modern advancements and a lot of hard work done by Derrick Campana, dogs have this option as well! A prosthetic leg for a dog is designed to replace the missing limb and allow the dog to move and stand normally. 


When is a Prosthetic Leg for a Dog a Good Idea?

A prosthetic leg can change your dog's life! We know you love your furry friend just the way they are, but you also want them to be happy and healthy. In many cases, a prosthetic leg is needed in order for this to be possible. Living, playing, walking, and running on three legs can lead to arthritis and potentially decrease a dog's life span. As well, it's very difficult to keep your dog's weight in a healthy range when they aren't able to be as mobile as other dogs.


How Much does a Prosthetic Leg for a Dog Cost?

While we wish you could give you an exact number, this question is a tricky one to answer. 

One prosthetic dog leg typically costs around $1,500. Every dog's amputation is unique, so their artificial limb needs to be custom made to fit them perfectly. It's also worth noting you may want to set aside about $100 in annual maintenance. It's not uncommon for dogs to chew on the straps that connect the artificial limb to their leg.
