|Of course it depends on the severity of the injuries, but if they were, as you said, "crushed", it's more than a simple bone break.
If you're talking about multiple fractures, breaks, and nerve damage, I could see how surgery could be close to $8,000 and how it could not be guaranteed. Injuries like this never are.
A person I knew had a cat who jumped out their Manhattan highrise after a bird and broke its front leg to pieces. It wasn't crushed but it was fractured multiple times.
They had the cat mended up but for whatever reason the surgery failed and they ended up having to amputate the front leg.
Either way, you did what you thought was best for your pup.
