Radical mastectomy for female cats cost $3,000 (plus teeth clean thrown in)

If it interests you, a radical mastectomy for cats cost around three grand. This would be in dollars or pounds and I am pretty sure that most European countries would charge something similar except for the Eastern European countries where it would be considerably cheaper. Would the standard be the same?

A Twitter user: Sincerely Communist is asking people for donations:

I hate to do this but my cat has cancer and is getting a radical mastectomy today, if you can spare any amount, literally anything helps

Who’d have thought? It is interesting that veterinarians use the same language as doctors. A double (radical) mastectomy for humans costs around $19,000 over 20 years.

So the cat version is one sixth in cost compared to the human version. I wonder if the difference is down to the quality of the surgery and aftercare. It makes me think. It makes me think that vets are undercharging and yet a lot of people consider them to be too expensive.

I don’t think they are. It is just that a section of cat owners are not genuinely in a financial position to afford veterinary fees and as a consequence avoid their vet. If I am correct it means that a good percentage of cat owners are not really in a position to care for a domestic cat to a high standard. That might sound harsh. It’s being realistic.

The North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) reported that around 2.6 percent of companion animals had health isurance in 2018. A very low number. Therefore these big expenditures come out of the pocket.

Note: cost of human mastectomy from medicalnewstoday.com. A radical mastectomy is the surgical removal of breast tissue and surrounding muscle plus lymph nodes.
