    Default Any vets able to help?

    So our 9 yr old pooch has some bad teeth. I feel terribly guilty Anyway, had a visit to the vet and just wondering what the general cost is for teeth extractions? Not including anesthesia.
    Just want to make sure it isnt a money grab. Got burnt by a vet before...but that's another story.

    Cheers

    Dentals are impossible to quote without seeing the animal. I'm a vet and while we had brackets for estimates they were quite often off.

    It depends on how many teeth, which teeth, whether x-Ray's are done, how much calculus there is, what pain relief and antibiotics are needed, the drugs of choice for the vet and the weight of the animal.

    Not sure if it is applicable as it applies to a cat and not a dog, but I was quoted around the $600 mark to get our cat's teeth cleaned and potential extractions under a GA. Turned out her teeth were perfect after a good clean, so ended up costing around the $300 mark.

    Cost also does reflect where you are located, as a locum vet nurse I have worked in practices all over and the cost varies depending on demographic. But as Amyd said its impossible to quote without seeing the teeth, it can even change once the patient is under GA because we can actually get a proper look at the teeth.
    From experience the cost can range from $250 for a scale and polish in a low demographic area to over $1k for the works in a high demographic area.
