HI, I just joined this thing. I have a 2 year old rat with a mammary tumor :( i want to get it removed but my vet is trying to charge me $350!! Is this reasonable? I've already paid $60 just for the initial visit. I live in New York...does anyone know a reasonably priced vet? How much should I expect to have to pay? Her tumor is getting bigger and bigger and I want to help her asap!!!

$350 i about average for tumor removals. you may be able to find a cheaper vet but it won't be by much and the longer you wait the larger the tumor will grow and the more it will cost to remove. also is the tumor is attached it will be more difficult to remove and so cost more in which case $350 would be a steal.
