My dogs are on a wellness plan at Banfield sponsored thru Petsmart. I pay a monthly rate and all there shots and one annual dental cleaning per year is covered. I have two dogs on the plan and couuld never afford it any other way. The plan also includes free vet visits so I can take them for just a sneeze if I want and they are covered. Its a good place to take your pets.

1 Extraction & Dental Cleaning, w/o blood work
Amount: $130.00

Breed: Cairn TerrierVet: Robert L. Miller, Jr., V.M.D.
My 9 month on dog was just at the vet today for an infected/abscessed tooth. He said there was also a good amount of plaque buildup for such a young dog as well. They said it be around 130, 200 at most(incase they find another tooth that needs extracted). Their prices are so reasonable here and they are good with my dogs! I liked that they gave me the choice to have the pre-blood work done as well. Other places try to take your money and have unnecessary charges and go ahead and do stuff that you don't ask them to! I will definitely be taking him here to get him neutered and will know they are not ripping me off.

Dental cleaning, 6 extractions, and the dog came home with nerve damage in his leg where they gave a tranquilizer. Vet brushed it off and now states Nacho needs total knee, both hind legs. I am not happy at all.

Fluoride-dangerous
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: caya in 0, AZ.Posted: May 19th, 2010 10:05AM
I never allow the vet to use the fluoride. It's incredibly toxic to dogs. Fluoride, pharmaceuticcal grade or organic is incredibly toxic, only slightly less toxic than arsenic and more toxic than lead. A tube of toothpaste has enough fluoride to kill a 10 year old child. Even if the fluoride is rinsed out, at least 1/2 remains in gums and intestines, casuing cancers over time. Osteosarcoma is prevelant in dogs.

Posted by: Reiigj in Austin, TX.Posted: May 18th, 2010 04:05PM
Breed: Aus ShepVet: Riverside Vet, austin texas
Lots of money but they do offer everything al la carte.. you can put them under with drugs they couldn't come out of quickly which are cheaper. Mike Jackson drugs are more expensive so went with drugs that can bring dog out of sleep in 15 seconds should they go into caridac arrest or stop breathing. Can't put a price on a pets life for sure. On the other hand, I could have just bought a nice new Ipad.. :(

Breed: Great PyrenessVet: Arizona Dental Specialists
My dog is 3 years old and needs to have all of her teeth removed. I was quoted by a couple different places and the lowest I found was going to be between $3500 and $5000. They said it amount depends on how long it takes. I find this a little extreme. I haven't had it done yet, but after seeing everyone elses posts, I think I'm going to go out of state to have this procedure done.

I think $75.00 is way too expensive for a 4 lb. dog that has no bottom teeth. I'm looking for someone close to our home that can do this for fair price.

after reading all your posts, I think this is a good price. Ultrasonic cleaning and flouride treatment on two five year olds...price is x2 for them both. I read up on non anesthetic cleaning and called around...they don't do ultrasonic or under the gumline where the dangerous bacteria is, they only do a cosmetic job. The cheapest one of those was an hour drive each way and only $25.00 cheaper. It is also illegal in this state for them to do this without a Vet's license or under the supervision of a vet. Guess that's why their mobile!!!

teeth cleaned w/o anesthesia
Amount: $95.00
Posted by: from beautiful Cave creek, AZ in scottsdale, AZ.Posted: March 12th, 2010 02:03PM
Breed: King Toy PoodleVet: Dr. Sellers
Have paid as much as $300 in the past for the whole cleaning enchilada but it took my 12 pound dog over a day to recover from the anesthesia and he looked lost for hours after coming home from the vet. Had local dog grooming / accessories store employee who is a vet's assistant manually clean our dog's teeth and she did an excellent job in about 40 minutes. Dog's breath immediately improved by 80% and we will brush/clean his teeth once a week in between cleanings. No more vets for teeth cleaning as it is to tough on their system for no real good reason. If during any checkup at the vet, the doc identifies more serious teeth problems then I would consider all options at that point but would shop around for sure.

Dental cleaning Xrays, no extractions
Amount: $800.00

Originally quoted $800 for the anesthesia, x-rays and off sight evaluation, antibiotics, IV, gas, propofol and other meds, fluoride and cleaning. My jaw hit the floor! Thankfully she is working with me to reduce the costs by eliminating the x-rays, a chunk of the cost. It's still quite high, too high. Not sure if I will proceed at this point.

I took my toy poodle which we got for Christmas for his first cleaning. He is 6 yes old and 5lbs. He had extensive gum and tarter decay. He had two front teeth extracted. I feel we have an amazing vet after seeing how expensive this could have been. The cleaning was 87.00 and it was 11.00 each for teeth. He was put under anesthesia and came out just fine.

Estimate for Cleaning + Extraction

Posted by: WestieOwner in Minneapolis, MN.Posted: March 2nd, 2010 06:03PM
Breed: Border Collie MixVet: Westgate Pet Clinic
I was considering adopting a dog from a shelter who needed a tooth extracted. The vet would only do the extraction with a cleaning as well. The quote from the pet clinic was for $600. Unfortunately, I think this excessive. The adoption fee of $200 seems paltry compared with the cost of removing a single tooth!

This is the quote I was given for my chihuahua that has pretty nice teeth. She is a level 1 out of 3 as far as difficulty. This quote doesn't include the basic exam ($29), or the bloodwork ($50-100), or the pain meds she'll go home with (<20). The total will be more like $225-285.

I have allready spent $852 for pre cleaning....blood work, xray, antibiotic ($73 for antibiotic alone) now my cleaning quote is for between $300-$500 per dog. My dogs both were found to have heart murmur's that were not there 1 1/2 yrs ago, maby caused by dental disease, I don't know. So all together I'm looking at least $1500 to $2000.00 total bill. My girl's are worth it, I want them healthy. I'm quite worried about the anesthesia.

Teeth Cleaning
Amount: $156.00
Posted by: LoveGoldens in Baton Rouge, LA.Posted: January 27th, 2010 01:01PM
Breed: Golden RetrieverVet:
Took my almost 6 year old golden to have his teeth cleaned. They had to extract 3 teeth along with cleaning. (We've been going to the same vet practice for 22 years, definitely the most reasonable in town.) While he was under they also gave him his yearly shots, clipped his toenails and one other thing. Total bill $156.00. They usually charge $70-$90 for cleaning and they said that extractions if need be are just included in that cost. We have vets here in town, that I know would charge as much as some of the extremes I've seen on here.

My advice for what it's worth, check around and compare prices. Ask other pet owners who they go to.

Contemplating
Amount: $370.00
Posted by: JenLang in Seffner, FL.Posted: January 21st, 2010 09:01AM
Breed: YorkieVet:
This is a quote I have recieved from my vet. According to all the other posts, this seems resonable or maybe average? Half of the price is for Pre-cleaning. They recommend that you have bloodwork done to make sure the dog is healthy before giving them anethisa. Also, they give you some kind of antibiotic so when they do clean the dogs teeth, the bateria that is released into the gums will not make them sick. These fees can be avoided if you want, but then you have to sign a waiver. I definately want to make sure my dog is healthy before putting her under! Now I just have to make the decision to have it done or not, I don't like having a 10 lb dog put to sleep!

Pet Food Max

Breed: BichonVet: Pet Food Max
I got it done by a lady who goes to pet food max every other month. Usually its $110 but my baby wouldn't let her touch one tooth so she gave me a discount. It was my Bichon's first dental cleaning in 12 years. His breath used to stink and the vet said his gum's were irritated which meant he needed dental cleaning, he said they would do it for $450 which I def wasn't OK with. The lady at pet food max cleaned my dogs teeth in 30 min for 85$ no anesthetics which is great! His teeth are spotless and he no longer has any gum irritations.

Almost overcharged, but wasn't thanks to all of you
Amount: $400.00
Posted by: Kai in Toronto, Other.Posted: January 17th, 2010 02:01PM
Breed: Miniature SchnauzerVet: Bathurst-Dupont Animal Hospital
I want to THANK everyone on this site for sharing your experiences. Thanks to you, I shopped around and found a NEW vet after my current vet quoted almost $1300 (!) to clean the teeth of my 7-year-old miniature schnauzer.

At the time, I had already paid for almost $400 of (mostly extraneous) pre-screening tests for my dog. This would have brought the grand total up to $1700. My vet couldn't give me a logical explanation for his pricing scheme, except that it included x-rays.

Seeing the prices listed here encouraged me to research further. Here are a few of things I discovered:

- There's a wide range of prices for this service amongst different vets, even in the same city, so shop around! Many vets do overcharge. Expensive (but really unnecessary) add-ons can jack up the price in a 'package'.
- February is 'dental month' at many vets so you may find the best prices then.
-Dog teeth are different from human teeth. When they decay, they just fall out. It's not necessary to take x-rays to figure this out; they wiggle! (and itís not like your vet is going to do fillings!). A manual examination during the cleaning can easily determine which teeth need to come out.
-Small breeds often loose their upper and lower incisors in mid-life. These teeth come out easily; don't allow a vet to charge you for each one!
-Brush, brush, brush your dogs teeth and you won't need to get them cleaned. I now brush every day. Products like Petzlife Oral Gel and Leba III can also help prevent plaque build-up, but nothing beats brushing.
In the end, I found a vet whose prices made sense to me: Cleaning package: $250 Extractions of upper/lower incisors: $70 IV/supplies: $20 Medication: $38 With tax, it was just over $400. I hope this information is helpful to others who are researching pricing for this procedure.

I was quoted $350 from my vet, then found Doggie Dental mobile non-anesthesia teeth cleaning for so much less! Did the cleaning and wouldn't do it any other way! No drugs, no after effects and my dog is still alive! No guarantee at the vet. I would highly recommend them to anyone in Southern California.888.936.4443

Is my Vet Overcharging for Teeth Cleaning?
Amount: $660.00
Posted by: whitebunnycandy in Danville, CA.Posted: January 2nd, 2010 10:01AM
Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier mixVet:
My dog currently weighs 12.5 lbs. She's almost 2 years old. It will be the first time she's getting her teeth professionally cleaned.

I give her Dental Star Treats, Greenies, and I used to give her raw sterilized bones until my Vet told me not too. I would also brush my dogs teeth 2x/week but with a fingerbrush.

After our last visit I have changed my dog's diet to Science Diet's Oral Care and have been trying to brush my dogs teeth daily with the actual bristle dog toothbrush and PetToothpaste.

My vet has estimated the Low Amount to be $660.48 and $901.13 for the High. This price range seems a bit ridiculous to me. The breakdown for price is as follows: Dental Stage I - $428.90, Canine Full Mouth Xrays - $137.60. How much should a dental cleaning for Stage I and Xrays cost? I worked as an intern for an Animal Clinic for awhile and observed Surgical Technicians cleaning teeth as well as performing extractions but I never saw how much they charged. I still want to get the procedure done but I was hoping the total bill to be more around $300 for a small dog such as mine with early periodontal disease
