Cornell University Hospital for Animals and the Animal Eye Center are two providers that offer estimated costs for dog cataract surgery on the Internet. Cornell University Hospital for Animals posts this information on the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine website.
As of 2015, the estimated cost of cataract surgery for dogs is about $3,300, according to Cornell University Hospital for Animals. This cost generally includes several pre-surgery and post-surgery examinations, as well as the surgery itself, hospitalization and medication. However, the cost may vary depending on complications.
The Animal Eye Center provides a similar cost estimate for dog cataract surgery. The center states that the average cost range is $2,800 to $3,800, as of 2015. Generally, both eyes undergo surgery at the same time, but the cost is more likely to be on the lower end of the spectrum if only one eye requires surgery.
