I haven't paid too much attention to the forum on the subject to know what the differnce in gelding a healthy colt to a crypotorchid is. But three years ago I was checking prices (healthy 2 yr.old) of local vets and found one that charges $150 for laproscopic surgery.

I believe that most vets are double that of the normal gelding. One of our vets charged us 175.00 for gelding 6 years ago or so and at that time it was just over 300.00 or better depending on how much he had to search for testicles. I would gets definate costs before letting any vet do anything anymore.

Last year when I called the hosp about cowboy they said for a cryptorchid it would run around 450 to 500 dollars all depending on how long the surgury would take.

In our area crytorchid surgery starts at 500 and runs up to 1200 depending on where you go and how involved the procedure ends up to be. Our colt ended up having surgery twice because the 500 vet missed!
