It was miss stew who actually took her. She's 13 now. (the dog) Anyways it cost about a ton and the vet mentioned her teeth could be doing with a clean. I tried once but to no avail she would have to be knocked out.


I asked miss stew how much. £375. Really? She's in no pain and I don't do rip offs. Is this a normal fee?

I can afford it jimnast but it's hardly cosmetic for a dog. Had I taken her to the vet I would have asked if dentures were included in that price. (seriously)

Sprinkle "plaque off" on their food
Helps keep it away
Plaque can crumble and be absorbed into the blood which is much more dangerous for a dog than people.

cuckoo, from what info I've read up on dogs hardly get toothache, the tooth just falls out. That said if infection is suspected then that would be an emergency.

I wasn’t suggesting you couldn’t afford stewarty but many can’t but vets know most will find it.

Although 13 now if my dog was seriously ill I would pay the 'supervet' Noel his asking price. He performs miracles.


I kid not but I've lost friends and associates that the hurt would pale into comparison as to losing my dog.

They clean dog's teeth nowadays?
I grew up around dogs and Im sure they just used to chuck em a jumbone

In fact where I was from they used to open the front door in the morning and youd not see the dog again till after dark.
Its a mad world now people wearing dog poo as jewelry or hanging it from tree branches in plastic bags.

To think the dog was just a hybrid of the wolf, you see the insanity levels of the human when you see how they changed it into al the crazy handbag dog types.

I genuinely know the answer to that one dust. Many moons ago they fed wolfs  scraps. Strange but true.

Get a knuckle bone off the butchers and boil it. Otherwise the dog will leave it until the flesh on it rots.

Gnawing at these every week or so will keep the dogs teeth in perfect order.

Avoid ribs or any brittle bones as peices can get tsuck in the throat or swallowed.

Stewy, don’t pay anything for a dental clean under anaesthetic, there are plenty of alternatives. I found that Dentalife treats do the job quite adequately, my vet even admitting that my cats’ teeth are remarkably improved for them. Also Plaque Off on their food is available from Animed and a bag of Hills Oral Care is lovingly digested.

No matter what problem you bring a dog to the vet with they always say the teeth needs eating. Then tell you you should take out yearly insurance with them for the dog.

The vet bill for my Muttley must easily be over £50 grand, he's 11 now.
As a pup he got diagnosed with meningitis and lost the use of his hind legs and couldn't wag his tail. So, off to the only place that could save him that being ",Supervet" Noel Futzpatrick in his clinic in Godalming.

He was insured and fair play, every bill was met including 3 expensive years of chemotherapy
but the premium increased accordingly.
Now it's a bottle a month but he's my dog, part of our family and an absolute character to boot so he's more than worth the extra bit of dosh.

Love

Dogs & particularly cats are prone to gum disease hence the need to have their teeth descaled. I've always had cats but after having to have my last cat put to sleep last year I'll never have another pet. I was absolutely devastated. It was an incurable condition & I told the vet I'd pay thousands if he could resolve the condition. He said there was nothing to be done. in the end it cost me just short of £300 to have the cat put to sleep. When the condition originated several years ago I spent well over a thousand on scans.

Ditto to that slicer as regards the circumstances for not having any more, we lost all 4 of our house rabbits in the space of no time at all, being in that room, especially with the 10 year old on the day he was put to sleep was horrific. Also wouldn't do it again sorely for the purpose of adding to the coffers of those absolute rip off veterinary practices. We ended up buying all our medication online ( 3 were on meds for life ) and there prices, compared to online vets meds were a p1ss take, but of course they used to charge you £15 for the privilege of writing you one out.

A lot of the good, small independent vets have signed up with the corporate Medivet. I won't comment on the one  Medivet of which I have experience. Let's put it this way, as soon as it was realised I had medical & veterinary knowledge, the treatment plan changed completely! Nuff said.

for what it's worth SB, although it's been years since I had a dog, you used to be able to buy beef flavoured dog toothpaste and my dog loved it... even when I used to brush her teeth with a dog toothbrush (yep, such things exist - long and thin) she was quite happy to put up with it as long as I used the beef toothpaste.


That's said, surely DentaStix would be easier?

DentaStix & similar products are ok for prevention, but once the calculus (tartar) forms, it has to be removed mechanically.

Sounds about right, I'm afraid.

Mine had to have two or three teeth removed, and the remaining ones cleaned, some time ago under anaesthetic, and that cost around £350.
He ought really to have them cleaned again, but he'll be 15 in June and I believe it can be risky putting them under beyond a certain age, though he's generally in good health.

My experience with vets is that they're hideously expensive. When you include the VAT that goes on everything, it makes owning a pet potentially very costly.
By:

When: 28 Mar 22 13:22
Mr Book- you're absolutely correct with regard to anaesthetising an aged pet. The risks can outweigh the benefits.
