True, but that Plaque Off will get it off...it's truly amazing.

My vet found a fractured tooth that had cracked all the way up to his gum line during a routine visit. Just seeing it, I know he was in a lot of pain. She said it was probably caused by him biting on something hard like a dog bone. She recommended not to give hard chews of that nature because they can crack the teeth. She extracted the tooth, took x-rays, and cleaned everything for $300-$350. Because it was a fractured tooth, my pet insurance reimbursed me most of the cost.

Tony's one back in July of 2012 was $200 and that included an extraction. Poor guy was genetically predisposed to bad teeth no matter what I do He has a bad molar in the back now that needs to come out, but I'm a bit uncertain about putting him under. He is starting to show some signs of health issues that I need to address first. However I need a day off when my vet is in town... that has not been easy between Spring Break, a death in their family and my working 55 hours a week.....

Cleo, in her 15 plus years, never had to have a dental.

We paid $175 last time. Our dog was 10 then, and she didn't handle the anesthesia very well, so we won't do it again.

My young Collile's teeth were terrible with plaque even though I brushed. I was told they have a history of dental disease, so I got them done here in SE PA: $400 for the cleaning and pre-blood work which I thought was pretty high.

I was quoted approx $250 for each dog with pre-blood work and anesthesia. My Westie is 6 and has had wonderful teeth up until now ( we credit his ripping out the back yard with his teeth while he digs) and my yorkie is three. I was advised by the yorkie breeder to schedule regular cleanings for the yorkie since their teeth are so small and crammed in that small mouth.

I will admit that I'm horrible at brushing dog teeth. Between the kid, the elderly parent and the job - that IS one chore that doesn't get done.

I'll probably have both done as soon as graduation is over in late May.
