    Pulling Teeth

    Does anyone know about how much it cost to get a dogs teeth pulled....well, two teeth pulled?

    Porter has all of his abult teeth now, but two of his baby teeth are still in. Its the front two, and they wont let the adult teeth grown in the right place. My vet said they will have to be pulled once they get a little more loose. But I don't think thats going to happen. Its been about two months and the teeth still wont move. they are in there as good as the adult teeth. So just wanted to know really anything yall can tell me about the price and more importantly what all I need to know about they will do it him.

    He also has a bump on his side (its more of a pocket) that we had drained and we now need to have cut out. Do yall think the vet would/ could that at the same time? I don't want him to have to be put under more than he has to.

    I dont know if you can really see whats going on in the pictures...but here you go.

    This happened to my puppy too. I think it depends on the vet. If he's not yet fixed, I would wait to do it at the same time as that since it costs less since he's already under anaesthesia (it was $20 when we got the teeth pulled during Sam's neuter). If you did it seperately it can be more expensive since they have to anesthesize the dog, so probably around $100

    since they are baby teeth it shouldn't be too expensive. It could run anywhere from $20-$150 per teeth depending on the vet/city, also you would have to pay extra if you want bloodwork, etc. Could it wait until he gets fixed?

    At the clinic where I work, they charge $14.70 (CDN) per deciduous tooth extraction when they do it as part of a spay or neuter. I'm sure your vet would extract the teeth at the same time as the drainage of your dog's bump. It would definitely be more cost effective that way because the anesthesia is what makes surgery so expensive.

    We're not sure if we're getting him fixed yet. I know i'm going to show him at least once after we do all the classes just to see if he wins anything. That why I want to go ahead get them out sometime soon. I also worry that they could start to hurt him. I know to many teeth can hurt people.

    And we do everything we need to do to make sure he never get around a female in heat.

    I would talk to your vet and see if they could do it at the same time they drain the pocket on his side. Pebbles had an inscisor pulled during her spay surgery and it was only $15 more. If she would have had to be put under a second time (which I DID NOT want to do due to health reasons) it would have been closer to $150.
