First I just want to thank everyone for the information they have posted. I've been sitting here all morning reading some of these posts which have helped immensely.

I just found out a few days ago that both my dogs have the chiari malformation. Ginger has some compression and Charley well his is more significant, spinal fluid has forced itself into the spinal cord. I'm taking them to see the neurologist for a follow-up appointment in 3 weeks I'm sure I'll get a better understanding of what needs to be done then.

But my question is for those that had the surgery roughly how much was it? Unfortunately, I do not have pet insurance. I know that the neurologist wants to speak to me about surgery for Ginger and not Charley since he's the one that is showing no symptoms but has it the worse. I can't figure that out?

Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
