Why don't you guys try calling a vet upstate? It seems people are more reasonable with prices upstate.make a weekend out of it.
+1 for making a weekend out of it.
I get my dogs teeth cleaned every year, mainly because I can't stand his bad breath.
Granted he's a small dog, but I only pay $125 (Lake George area)
It can't be much more for a bigger dog. I'll ask tomorrow. My vet lives down the block from me
PM me if your interested. For $700 you could get his teeth clean and have a vacation.
Right now is the perfect time to view the foliage, plus we could shoot at my club while you wait
