    DefaultCleaning Teeth (NLR)

    My neighbor who owns a Scottie had her teeth cleaned today and was charged $625. She asked if I would post here to find out what others have paid for this service. She was shocked at the cost, so am I.

    Haven't done that in years; but I remember Connie mentioned finding some really high prices, too.
    I can't remember what we paid years ago, but I can guarantee it didn't come close to that or I wouldn't have been able to do it.

    Don't know current or canine prices, but about 6 years ago, I had a cat's teeth cleaned (full anaesthesia) and it cost me just over $200. We need dental insurance for our pets!

    Holy cow!!

    When I checked into it for Simon, they told me the range could be anywhere from $200 - $300. $300 was if they had to pull teeth or something similarly invasive.

    My vet is not really famous for their incredibly low prices , so I would say that is high end around here.

    I did find another place that would do it for $80.

    I also saw an ad for a groomer who would do it, but I haven't checked their price yet.

    Brief hijack, please forgive :P

    Sandy, I did buy the boys some marrow bones. I haven't given them yet, though, because I'm not sure I'm in love with the size and shape of them.

    I agree a bone is in order. When I took Cinnaon to the vet he checked her records because her teeth were so clean he wanted to see when they were last done. I have never had them done. She just gets a bully stick 4 inches each night and a frozen marrow bone a couple times a week.

    Thanks for the answers. My neighbor claims she gives her dog marrow bones (parboiled) but I don't know how often. I think her vet, who I used to use, is out to scalp every penny he can. I told her to find another vet.

    Yikes! That seems quite steep.

    Our vet charges around $200 or something like that for a full dental under general anesethia. But our vet also offers a new procedure where the animal isn't put under and is done while the client waits for her/his dog. That costs $90, with a $17 upkeep charge every 2months or something.

    Yikes! That's really expensive. Have you guys found that all of the chew that claim they clean teeth work or is the marrow bone the best way to go? Lexie's teeth are so pretty right now, it would be nice to keep them that way, hehe.

    That seems really high. My vet charges around $200.00. However they do have some sort of lazer cleaning they can also do and that may be more.
