Breed: Spanish water dogVet: N. Royalton Animal Hospital
Estimate is for $513 and $767 on the high side if they have to extract more than one tooth. This includes blood work before hand, heart monitoring by a specialist through out, medicine for after.rnThey seem to include a lot of extra charges and I thought it was very high until I looked on here. Think I will still shop around

Teeth Cleaning with being put under.. Surprised Cost
Amount: $160.00
Posted by: MomofCoho in Burlington, WA.Posted: October 19th, 2012 08:10AM
Breed: Jack Russell MixVet: Chuckanut Vet in Burlington, WA
I took my dog Coho in and he is only about 3. They said he was already showing signs of dental disease. I have had other dogs and always lag on the dental cleaning. With this dog I promised I would not do that anymore because it leads to other issues like organ failure, teeth extractions, etc. They gave me a estimate at 285. I took him in vet prior for ring worm he picked up at dog park. They said if I get his blood drawn that day they would take 10$ off my bloodwork. If i booked my teeth in the next 30 days I would have 30 dollars off!! I didn't even come in with the intentions to do that so i booked it. I don't know how it went from 285 to 160 but I was amazed! They did a great job! They were voted the best vet in Burlington. The vet I visisted previously quoted me 480. I wasn't happy with them because he said it wasn't ring worm. I decided to go with the vet who actually did tests and found Coho's problem and thought they would be good to get a estimate for teeth and I am glad I did

Teeth cleaning
Amount: $530.00

Breed: Jack RussellVet:
Took my 5-year old Jack Russell to get her teeth cleaned today. The cost is apparently driven up by the cost of the anesthesia and by the several antibiotics prescriptions.

The bill originally presented to me was about $630. I had prepared myself for high costs, but this was higher than I had anticipated. I decided to forego the pre-procedure blood work to save $100. Another thing I could have cut but didn't was an IV with fluids during he procedure. As I recall, the vet tech explained that this would insure that my dog's blood pressure would not fluctuate much during the procedure. I was concerned and so I ended up paying for that.

Afterwords, I was worried that I had perhaps overpaid. I had stupidly not comparison-whopped beforehand. But seeing the coats that others are paying, it appears that any overpayment was minimal.

In the future however, I really need to check out the ASPCA or other low cost alternative as these bills are hitting me hard.

My Westie, who is 12 and is blind from SARDS, developed asthma immediately after a dental procedure, and I was told by one of the vets that this is an occasional complication of a cleaning. Now she is on prednisone and doxycycline. Does anyone know how often this occurs?

Depending on finances, I go every year or every other year to my local feed store: Wild West, Or Western Feed for my 2 dog's teeth cleaning. They don't use anesthesia, but the dogs aren't stressed, and they do a great job of cleaning, and polishing. If there is anything really urgent that requires a vet work-up, the feed store provides a low cost vet who comes once a week.

tooth extraction and cleaning
Amount: $1,800.00
Posted by: dorothy in san francisco, CA.Posted: February 13th, 2012 12:02PM
Breed: chihuahua/yorki misVet: all pets hospital
my brady is at the vet now for his broken tooth extraction - they just called to say he has 4 additional tooth that is broken. and one of them - they can't fully remove the root... so the original estimate (high) was 1800 - so i am assuming this will now be over 2k. it really sucks to be in this situation but you got to do what you have to do. My brady can't speak for himself and i need to look after his health as his caretaker. i can shop around for a better deals, but i want to make sure he gets the full treatment like i would want for myself. i know the VPI won't reimburse me for not even 30%, but at least i will know brady will be fine when he comes home.

by the way - brady never complained about his tooth - the vet found the broken tooth at his annual exam.

Cleaning and Extracts

Breed: Parsons Jack RussellVet: In Search of
I have a 10 year old Parsons Jack Russell in rescue that has a fractured tooth which has resulted in a facial abcess. Although treated with antibiotics, it keeps resurfacing. I am looking for the best deal to get her a much needed dental and the extraction of one tooth for sure. She is a senior dog so the vet would provably require blood work as well. I am looking for a vet in the southbay area of Los Angeles County, CA

These guys are out of Ft Lupton, Colorado. They are a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic and also offer shots and dental. A Rescue I worked with has used them for a couple of years now and I have used them on my own pets. They are mostly volunteer staff with the vets also give their time at low rates. They have had to pull almost all the teeth of some of the puppy mill dogs who came in with horrible rotten teeth and the highest they charged was $175. They are an awesome clinic and now I am here in Oregon and cannot find anyone like them to take care of my pets again.

Had a very simple cleaning required for my 3 y/o dog. I was able to have this done at the local veterinary school for 225 - this included a thorough exam, lab work, anesthesia and cleaning. Very pleased with the work. Estimates in Memphis were closer to 350-500+. When shopping around, always consider local veterinary schools - it was a God-send for us!

Extensive Dental Work
Amount: $800.00

Breed: Cavalier King Chas. SpanielVet: Dr. Eubanks, MS State Univ.
After being quoted a range from 1500-3000 in my home town of Memphis, TN for extensive dental work, my very kind vet recommended I try the local veterinary school. Though I had a 3 hour drive, it was more than worth it to know that a board certified dentist and anesthesiologist were taking care of my dog, who is 10 years old and has multiple health issues. The cost included anesthesia, cleaning and 18 extractions - also included post-op antibiotics and pain medications for several weeks. VERY pleased and will return. Thanks again to my local vet for this referral!

Teeth Cleaning with 9 extractions
Amount: $650.00
Posted by: Satisfied Owner of two! in Ruidoso, NM.Posted: August 24th, 2011 04:08PM
Breed: Cavalier King CharlesVet:
The price may include blood test! He had a cyst removed at the same time and I have deducted for that, but perhaps some of the incidentals were for the cyst removal. I didn't add the 80.00 blood test back in. Winslow is five years old, short snout, crooked teeth. Kidney disease. None of the charges look excessive, but they add up and I wanted the safest anesthesia. Monitored aftercare. There wasn't excessive tartar because he gets regular dental care, but his breath was bad and the gums bleeding. 5 X rays! Toy breed=problem premolars. Extractions were 6.50-30. each. No antibiotics. Good drugs! Zonked!

Teeth Cleaning and 1 extraction
Amount: $660.00
Posted by: Cocoa's owner in Union City, NJ.Posted: August 11th, 2011 02:08AM
Breed: Lhasa ApsoVet: Union City Animal Clinic NJ
My Lhasa Cocoa is 8 years old and I never had his teeth cleaned. Dr. Oz had a vet on his show speak about the need for oral health for pets and recommended putting oral mouth rinse in pets water daily to prevent tarter build up. My son noticed our dogs breath is very bad. I looked at Cocoa's teeth and gum's and the gum's were bright red and looked swollen and one of his molars was cracked in a couple of places and his teeth had brown tarter at the top of most. I felt a bit bad for my neglect. One vet charges only 80 but doesn't use anesthesia, which would hurt with the extraction. The break down of cost is $110 for the presurgery blood work, $40 vet exam, $120 I.V. to flush anesthesia after surgery $30 DP injection $35 Toeb injection [these I think are for pain and antibiotics during surgery] $125 anesthesia, $100 for the teeth cleaning itself, $50 for the tooth extraction, $50 for pain and antibiotic medications to take home after surgery. In reading up on this kind of surgery I'm very nervous that all will go well. His surgery is today.

our lab is almost 11 and never had bad teeth...new vet looked and said "oh look - she needs her teeth cleaned"...so, we thought - ok - since she'll already be under for another treatment...what I didn't expect was that the anesthesia took MORE of a toll on our pup then anything!! after almost 15 hours after being done, she is almost back to her ole self...I won't let her go under again unless its a life saving measure - she can't handle it!!

2nd follow up
Amount: $406.84
Posted by: ereader in Livermore, CA.Posted: July 27th, 2011 12:07PM
Breed: Cavalier King Charles SpanielVet: Oakland SPCA
Update 2:
After the evaluation and estimate, I had to wait for another condition to clear before getting the teeth cleaning. The SPCA were wonderful, I ended up with two full and detailed discussions on the dogs health, (unlike other vet's I have gone to where they just want you to hand over the dogs leash and walk away until pickup hours later.) Anyway, the teeth were cleaned, two pre-molars did have to be extracted, PLUS we had a growth removed and it was UNDER the original estimates. They actually used my credit card at pick-up to run a $147.87 credit on my card, I was in shock. I ended up saving over 60% by shopping around. It has been a while now and he is playing, happy, eating and just doing wonderfully. I do not know about other SPCA Vet Clinics but I am sold on the one, an hour away from my home, in Oakland. Again, good luck everyone, and get second opinions and another quote if you can!
