My dog's health and life is well worth it. Letting a busted tooth (which is what she had. It was very badly broken) abscess and rot is incredibly painful and can be deadly. If I hadn't pointed this out to Mom, and made her take Juneau in, she'd have never noticed it and Juneau would not be in very good shape right now.
Honestly, I haven't been to the dentist in a few years, but my last cleaning was $250 (xrays, bi-annual exam from the dentist). A dental cleaning with extractions at the clinic I work at with pre-op blood work, pain medications and antibiotics can range from $250-350 depending on how much work needs to be done and the age of the dog. Personally, I feel like the dogs get a much better deal.
but not all of us - I need to be anesthetised just to get through the door :bolt:We can sit still and say "AHHH!" and just use local anesthetic and not bite the dentist's hand off or freak out and have to be held down. (Well, most of us anyway)
Haha I understand. It takes every ounce of self control to sit there and let them mess around in my mouth, but at least I understand what they're doing and why and can exert self control based on logic!but not all of us - I need to be anesthetised just to get through the door :bolt:
I can't handle a cleaning without a lot of Valium.but not all of us - I need to be anesthetised just to get through the door :bolt:
