How much does a colonoscopy cost for a dog? My dog has chronic colitis. We have ruled out parasites (done fecal tests) and food allergies (we've done a food trial already). The next step will likely be a colonoscopy from what I'm told. Has anyone had a dog who underwent a colonoscopy - if so, how much did it cost? In the thousands or hundreds of dollars? I'm just curious.

It's about three hundred and fifty plus here.
Before you do that, have you just considered switching foods? Colitis is an autoimmune problem where the colon swells. I would assume allergies are to blame. Or how about the vet giving a simple round of steroids to see if it clears up. At least then you will know for sure if swelling was involved. Have you done a round of antibiotics just to make sure it isn't a bacterial infection in the colon?

You are a good dog owner to consider this. Chronic colitis isn't curable, so you will be dealing with it for the rest of her life if that is the correct diagnosis. You might consider quality of life issues too.

I am a pretty helpful person and was a little bit upset when I was googling the price for a colonoscopy for dogs. I really wanted to help you out, even though this forum is for drug addicts.....

Why would you post this???? I found it on yahoo answers, and it's from 5 years ago. Your post is word for word, what this woman asked 5 YEARS AGO!

If I'm way off here....I apologize....I just don't think I am....
