What did you pay to have your dogs teeth cleaned? My vet here in town gave me an estimate of $400 (my dog weighs 20 lbs). I paid $165 in Oregon, where my dog was dropped off the day before and then picked up the day after the teeth cleaning. Seems kind of expensive.

Try Ann Rd Animal Hospital. I think it's about $150 and they throw in a bath.

I think we pay about $150 per dog at South Shore Animal Hosp. They have a sale on cleaning in Feb., and I think, Aug., each year.

Why complain? $400 isn`t that bad at all and If you really want to save, buy a toothbrush and clean the dogs teeth yourself. If your dog loves n`trusts you, it will let you do the job without your getting bitten.

We clean our own dogs teeth. Have a pick of sorts for the tartar and a brush. I didn't know people paid to get their dogs teeth cleaned. If you got the money though by all means, we would be broke for a month if we spent $400 a pop on some teeth cleaning. Hell I don't even get service like that. Lol

Wow, had no idea teeth cleaning was so expensive by itself. We have an annual health plan for our dog that costs about $40/month and includes semiannual exams, any other necessary office visits throughout the year, requisite vaccinations, an EKG, some x-rays, and an annual teeth cleaning.

$400 should include a handful of extractions.

You can find a discount $150'ish dental, but that wouldn't include extractions. Sometimes they review the teeth and know how many extractions they need when they give the estimate or sometimes they just say "on average dogs need this many teeth extracted" and they'll adjust the price up or down accordingly after the dental is completed.

Doctors have to do the extractions whereas usually it's a technician (not a Dr) doing just the dental itself.

Most dogs/cats do need extractions unless you brush the animal's teeth yourself or you get very regularly dental.

Aug is pet dental month nationwide and a lot of offices offer a 20%'ish discount. Many repeat the discount in Feburary.

I'll also recommend Ann Rd. we goto Camino al Norte (same owners). Dr Varela by far is the best vet we've ever met.

The high cost quote may be for an older dog; many if not most vets do blood work on older dogs to be sure they can tolerate the anesthesia; also, a different and more expensive anesthesia may be used on an older dog. It's been long enough since I paid for a cleaning on my older girl that I can't remember what I paid; I do remember it was more than 200.

Does anyone know where I can get my dog's teeth cleaned without the use of anesthesia? I know they don't scale as deeply with this type, but it's less expensive & I don't want my tiny 3-pounder to undergo anesthesia.
