Estimate to have my OES teeth cleaned and two small cysts removed. I am rethinking who will do this or whether I will have the cysts removed.

Older Maltese vs Teeth Cleaning

Can't decide to have my 14&1/2 yr. old Maltese go under anesthesia for teeth cleaning. He also has serious warts to be removed, a large fatty deposit on his abdomen. He has a strange shaking thing he does periodically. Afraid I will lose him in surger. What to do?

When teeth cleaning for a dog costs more than vet care for my two horses...
Amount: $600.00

Breed: Italian GreyhoundVet:
You know, I find the exorbitant amount of money it costs to clean a dogs teeth to be ridiculous. Seriously, when bloodwork and teeth cleaning exceeds the amount it takes for me shoe and call a vet for TWO horses, we've got a problem. When I try to find out a ball park...I get "this dog will cost $300 because there's minimal tartar, but we're not sure on the other dog so it could cost more"... that's like signing a blank check. Really, I just spent $600 on the same dog back in February. WTH?!!!

cleaning & extractions
Amount: $829.00

Just brought my 8 yr old home from the vet after leaving her this morning for a dental cleaning. She had one about 3-4 years prior. Was shocked to hear the vet extracted 13 teeth. The extractions plus blood work, anesthesia, Xrays, 2 painkillers & 1 antibiotic totaled $829. It made me feel awful for not having them cleaned earlier. Ironically I had waited because I couldn't afford the approximate $300 it was going to cost.

17 year old
Amount: $1,200.00
Posted by: Judy2 in Cheektowaga, NY.Posted: June 16th, 2011 06:06AM
Breed: Terrier/BeagleVet: Town & Country
Our dog is going on 17 years of age. We had her teeth cleaned about every 4 years(extractions as necessary). Today, our dog is at the Vet's having 12 teeth removed, due to periodontal disease. The pre-op tests (blood work, xrays) with the office visit, cost $240.00. Today's procedure will cost $950.00. She is being carefully monitored during the procedure which is vital for her age. All her labs, xrays had come back great...all within range (unbelievable, I think),with the exception of her PLT at 525 (normal range is 175-500) Given the results of all other blood tests that were so "right on"...she should do well after this procedure. Such a great dog...very dedicated to our family. Periodontal disease is so painful.
We could never allow her to finish out the rest of her life suffering. We will pick her up later this afternoon, to recover at home.

To Puppy Love in Boston, MA.
Thanks for the suggestions. The closest Vet school we have here is UC Davis, in Davis California, which is hours away. I went a similar route, I called around and found an SPCA clinic about 45 minutes away from where I live. I am also borrowing $'s from relatives (who also love this dog). I just think they were happy that I was proactive and searched the WEB and called around to get a more reasonable quote. But there is no way my dog is going to suffer, or lose more teeth, even if I am out of work; but in the same light, I will not go into debt for it.

Breed: Cavalier King Charles SpanielVet: Dr. Gadd
Update:
I made an appointment at the SPCA there is one clinic in this county that performs complete, non-emergency Vet services. For the same dog, two weeks later, they gave a quote range of $547.70 to $842.70. That is a price difference of -$414.22 to $182.58 LESS. It took time to find out about their facility and make an appointment for a “dental estimate” with the additional charge of $40.00 (payable at the of making the appointment) but worth every penny! It could even be less, this vet is not sure if he will really even need the teeth extractions (hum?). If it is not an emergency, from now on it is the SPCA clinic for me and my pets. Good luck everyone.

I was wondering if there is a vet. dental school near you. I know that a lot of times the (People) dental schools have reduced rates and you get someone who is about to graduate, overseen by the instructor. I'm wondering if the vet. dental schools do the same thing, especially given your financial issue. I hope this helps. Also, I think they charge more if it's done in a hospital, as opposed to an office or clinic.

I was given a verbal estimate for $800 to $1000 for a teeth cleaning and two extractions.
Help! There is no way, I simply do not have the money.
They "offered" a credit line application! With no job right now, there is no way I can afford the credit or these charges.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Breed: MalteseVet: Riverside Canine Dental
Our maltese seemed to be prone to plaque attacking her gum line since she was only year old. I thought it was inherent to the breed due to the severity of the plaque and eventual tarter buildup. The cleanings included ultrasonic planning and polishing, nevertheless she required a treatment every 4 to 6 months. Due to the economic constraints on 2 to 3 visits a year our vet recommended visiting the VitaHound site an organization that provided expert advice on canine oral care. Using the sites info and direction I was able to prevent the plaque attack our beloved dog was experiencing.

Cleaning and one extraction
Amount: $1,500.00
Posted by: Java Jon in Punta Gorda, FL.Posted: February 23rd, 2011 04:02PM
Breed: Jack Russell TerrierVet: Dr. Beckman
I was willing to go to a dental vet for a more thorough cleaning... that was $650 plus $75 for a cbc and chem. Then I got a call during the procedure saying a molar needed extracting ... this brought the price to $1500 plus the $75 for the lab work. Very few options at that point, so I got it done. I love my dog. He also took 10 xrays. Seems like he did a good job.
3 year earlier I took my dog to Dr. Benjamin Colmery in Ann Arbor, MI. He is also a Dental Vet. Excellent guy... would not hesitate to go back. Teeth cleaning, 2 xrays, labwork, one front tooth extraction .... $400.00.

Now looking at the Banfield wellness insurance plan where teeth cleaning is included, a friend uses it and likes it. And no I am not a shill for Banfield, just shocked at what teeth cleaning ultimately cost!!!

Our family owns several dogs living on large horse farm. The dogs spend the evenings inside with the family cause the common bad breath in dogs to be an issue. The veterinarian teeth cleanings did not seem to resolve the dog's bad breath and cost about $450 per dog per visit. The solution was finally the info and products found at VitaHound.com site.

I thank God that Dr. David Davis is such a great doctor. He had to extract 14 teeth from my 7 year old Maltese. He had to split one of the teeth before removing, as it was down almost through the bone. He showed me the x-rays and it made me cry. He sent home all meds, food and my healthy dog. I am glad that he is the BEST! He gave me a big senior discount, so it ended up a bit less.

My dog is 8 years old and is 120 lbs. I never really brushed his teeth at all. My groomer suggested I get his teeth cleaned professionally. Now his teeth look great and no more bad breath. He was sent home with Clindamycin antibiotic medication. I was nervous about the high cost, but am now very happy with the results. I recommend it.

I have a 4yr old maltese. I feed him with Eukanuba's vet and dry food. He likes the vet food and kind of slow on the dry food. He had plaques especially in the back and up teeth. I removed them all myself. It took me 5-10mins. If you want to do it yourself be careful. You don't want to cut his gums. You need to control your hands and the pressure you are putting on the tooth. He still may need a dentist for cleaning but I am sure I saved some money by removing those myself.

Not to sound callus this is more that the cost of a dog... How can this be possible? All vets in the Gilbert area seem to require blood work, x-rays, anesthesia, cleaning then antibiotics. Where can a guy just get his dogs teeth cleaned without all this red tape?

Cleaning "Alternative"

Posted by: Love my little girls! in Wasilla, AK.Posted: October 27th, 2010 10:10AM
Breed: ChihuahuaVet: All Creatures
Recommendation from my sis-in-law's vet in Colorado, "don't do it. There is risk with the anesthesia itself, risk that the esophagus can be torn by the anesthesia tube. The job of cleaning is very difficult, especially on smaller dogs." The alternative? Feed them carrots! Slices for smaller dogs, pieces for medium size and a whole carrot for large dogs. Cleans their teeth and freshens their breath and it's good for them. It's not the answer to all dental problems but is a good daily cleaner and digestive aid!

I took 2 of my Mini Schnauzers to my vet for a teeth cleaning. They are 4 & 8 years old. Between the two of them they had 9 extractions, and the oldest one had a fatty sist on her flank removed that we had been watching for some time. I had read all these posts, and expected a shocker. When I went to pick them up, I was quite suprised! The cost was $215.00 for everything. Bloodwork was not done..but I trust my wonderful vet of 10-12 years. Their breath smells so nice now with their happy kisses, and I feel better that the sist has been removed. I drove to Kimball, TN. where my vet works 2 offices. He is the best country vet there is and well worth the drive.

Lou, our 8 year old Shih Tzu, had to go in the vet today for a dental. He was knocked out, had his teeth cleaned and had 8 extractions done. We walked out the door with a $300 bill. It was very worth it. You cannot put a price on your companion's life. Lou's breath is 100 times better smelling, he is eating better, he is happier and we don't have to worry about him having any other serious health complications from his teeth. I couldn't be happier with our vet either. Fountain Vet is the most fabulous clinic I have ever been a client at.

I was quoted $325.00 to have my dogs teeth cleaned, but once the Dr. started working, she realized that he had some cracked teeth that need to be removed. She called me at home when he was "under" and asked if I wanted the teeth removed. Of course I said yes. It made sense. She failed to tell me what it would cost. I failed to ask. At least, I refused to purchase the $13 mouthwash they recommended. When I insisted the mouthwash be removed from my bill, the tech looked at me like I had just drowned a puppy. What dog would allow you to rinse his mouth out twice a day? WHAT A RIPE OFF! Within 6 months he teeth reverted back......like they had never been cleaned. No, I do not brush my dogs teeth.

I just went to the vet and got an estimate for dental extractions on my 6 pound Chihuahua. $650-$750 dollars!!! I couldn't be more shocked!! Could someone tell me if this seems like a reasonable amount? (There are about 4-5 teeth that need to be yanked.)
Also, does anyone know of a more reasonable vet in the Napa Valley area?
