How much it cost to get a autopsy for your dog?

My beagle had several seizures before his last one which led to me having to have him put to sleep. The vet could not save him. The vet believed he had a brain tumor which caused his seizures and led to him being put to sleep. I would like to know for sure if he had a brain tumor because no test or MRI was done on him to prove he had a brain tumor. I want to have an autopsy done on him but don't know if I can afford one. About how much will it cost to perform a autopsy on my dog? What is the normal cost?

When I have had necropsies (autopsies are for people, necropsies are for animals) done on parrots it has cost me around $200, but some clinics quoted me double that. You will need to call the individual clinic where the dog was put down, and typically there is a pretty strict time limit on these things since the body has to be disposed of.
