Average Cost for Xray & nerve block

My QH is 15 and having intermittent lameness issues and I had a vet exam...naturally she wasn't lame that day. It her right front...she was overweight and we got that under control and it seems to be better for awhile, then she's sore again. I did try a joint supplement but no clear results. I try to keep her work light and be very conscious of how she's feeling but I would like to investigate further and know for sure what's really going on. The doc did a general lameness exam and hoof test with no results.

I would like to get some xrays done and someone suggested a nerve block too in order to potentially lessen the amount of xrays needed. I'm going to get a quote from my vet but would like to know the average costs from your experience. FYI--I'm in MO. Thanks!!!

I don't know about nerve blocks, but I am pretty sure I paid in the $300 range. Nothing showed, so I had scans, and they were about $600.

That completely depends on your location, and your vet. Around here it ranges so VERY much. Some are relatively cheap and some are super expensive. You will just have to get a quote from your vet(s).
