I have a 70 lb pit who needs a dental cleaning under anesthesia. Live out near miller place. What's the going rate for this procedure . I got a quote for $700 and I want to know if that's excessive.

I know..
Shoot, I do Root canals on human molars in my office for less money than cleaning a dogs teeth with a little anesthesia.
I could see $500. but $700 with no extractions seems exorbitant.

Yea.. I should have gotten that joke..

Funny, My girlfriend asked me the same thing.


And I'm not kidding when I say a PATIENT asked me if I could clean her HORSE's teeth!

Anyone here had their large dog put under for a cleaning?

Anesthesiologist saying, " we don't get paid to put you to sleep, we get paid to wake you up"
They get top dollar for their expertise and I'm guessing that's why the price is high.

My pit is a chew monster. ropes, bones, greenies..

I spend 30 a month in chew things for that animal. I used to scale her teeth myself and brush them but recently the plaque is getting the best of me (so ashamed).

I really feel the Ropes do the best job but they must be disposed of because they sit around, festering with drool and plaque on your floor and then back in the mouth they go!
I'm just gonna go ahead and go forward. Even if I could find a bit cheaper, the hassle of new exams/bloodwork and farther driving would even it out.

$700 it is... man that would have been a nice pistol!!!

Banfield Pet Hospital, run out of PetSmart, is run like an ***. We pay $39 monthly. This basic level of care includes a yearly check-up, normally scheduled vaccines and a dental cleaning. Other procedures or meds are extra, but discounted. Well worth it. Our former vet charged about $700 just for the dental cleaning.

A human who needs a root canal (I just had to have one drilled to treat an infection) can't and won't bite through your forearm. Your pitbull can. I'm not saying ptibulls are viscous or anything like that. I know they are great dogs, but they have VERY powerful jaws, no?

I give my Rottie Pedigree Dentastix or the Milk Bone dental treats She is going on 12 and my vet says her teeth are excellent
And I can see they are really white
I would buy a case of either and try them out before I would spend 700 bucks IMHO

What is the risk to benefit for cleaning? I debate getting my dogs teeth cleaned but I worry about putting her under.

I paid $700 for my little pomeranian last year at Bide a Wee in Westhampton. When we got her from ARF you couldnt see the teeth under the black crud...They did an awsome job, but she was missing a bunch, but the ones she had came out nice...
