I was just wondering what the costs are approx. for front leg and or hoof x-rays. Just need an idea of how much to save should I need them. My horse's who was lame and who stands knees bowed sometimes is getting better but If he does not show more improvement in the next few weeks I would like x-rays or radiographs done and was just wondering roughly what I need money wise Thanks in advance

You would need to call your local vet clinic and ask. It varies widely from area to area. They are quite inexpensive where I live, about $25 for one or two views; but, were $100 or more where I lived in California.

We charge $90 for the first 2 views and then $20 for each additional view. The $90 covers the work of set up, getting the processor up and running, and the exam of the images and recording of the results. As Sara observes there is a lot of variation but I don't know how anyone could take 2 views for 25$ and remain in business.
