$757.00 for a full dental, iv fluids, propofol as the anesthesia, bloodwork, pain meds and two extractions of molars.

 

Is this about right? This is the first dental that I have done for my girl.

 

Thanks!

Judging by the prices here for a dental, that is very inexpensive

 

That's good to know! I take her in tomrrow morning so I am sure I will post again! I am going to be a nervous wreck but she'll feel so much better afterwards (hopefully!)

I remember that she goes in tomorrow, and I know you're nervous, we all get nervous. She'll feel much better, and try to remember to ask after the dental is they came out easy or if they were difficult.

We'll be thinking of you both tomorrow

I will. Do they typically have to get stitches for extractions?

This is just what they gave me over the phone so I am not sure on the price per extraction but I was actually expecting higher. There is another vet I can go to but I don't really trust the office or the staff. I took my girl there for a vaccine once and I just didn't feel that they were on the up and up. She's worth every penny. These girls are like my kids! I know we all feel that way!

For the molars, yes she'll have a few stitches that will disolve

I live in Boston and have a dental scheduled for next week at Angell Memorial Hospital. My guy is high risk due to PLN/PLE/IBD so they are having a board certified anethesiologist be part of the team. He is 10 and has already lost half his teeth and he will likely lose most if not all of the rest (21) due to severe periodontal disease and because he will not likely be able to have another dental in his lifetime. He is currently fighting an infection from a tooth so there are no options but to proceed. He has also been seen by a cardiologist and the dentist and Internal Medicine doc have been working out a plan for all his meds. With all that said, they gave me a quote of $750 - $1,100 and this includes a full set of x-rays. I was expecting WAY more. They price based on time of procedure versus the number of teeth and which teeth. His last dental was done by my regular vet and he lost 18 teeth and the total bill was $1,350. Angell Memorial is run by the MSPCA and is non-profit so I don't know if that factors into it or not. As far as I can tell, costs are all over the board for dentals.

 

Thinking good thoughts for your pups dental!

That is very expensive. I'm sorry, but it seems as though the Dr. is pocketing a lot of that money... I would think $400 is more like it.... The clinic I work for, probably wouldn't even charge that much.

What vet did you go to? Buzz just had a recent one with all that with 2 extractions plus had a mole removed and some extra meds and it was $550. I think it would have been around $350-$400 without the extras.

 

Edited to add - Oh yeah you told me the vet you go to. I'm in Scottsdale where everything is more exensive and that price you quoted is way out of line in my opinion.

I have an appointment for Sizzle, my other girl to go in for her dental next week. I am debating moving it to either the vet you go to or back to Southside with Dr. Y. I just don't know what to do.

Toby had his dental day before yesterday. It was a little over $300.00.

Reuben has very bad peridontal disease they told us. This was his second dental. Now they suggest a dental every 6 months! Yikes at almost 600.00 a shot, that is very expensive dentals. she also said a dental should be done every year! I was not aware of that. Any thoughts on this?
