Default Remmy to the Vet

Took Remmy to the Vet this morning to get his teeth done. $549.81 later, he is home and feeling very sorry for himself. I don't know how they figure the Senior Discount, sometimes it is a couple of hundred dollars, this time it is only $59.24 so without the discount it would be over $600.00 to get your dog's teeth cleaned and any teeth pulled. They charge per minute for pulling teeth so I always make sure I get one certain Vet as he is the fastest. Their rates have gone up as it is now $60 for the office visit.

Wow! I always tell myself I will brush my dogs teeth but she hates for me to put my finger in her mouth. So we give her a half dental chew once a day. My bad. I know I should brush her teeth. Teeth are so important to overall health.

That does sound a little pricey... did he have many extractions? I have been using Petzlife with my two as it was highly recommended on this forum a while back by one of the German Shepherd breeders. Initially, they didn't like it but with her peanut butter trick they don't mind it at all (and I get the entertainment of watching them work the peanut butter in their mouths ). It seems to be working well for them.

That seems a little high to me as well. I had to take my Great Pyrenees in a week ago yesterday--er infection. They did a culture on both ears to check for mites, mite eggs, etc and nothing. His right er seemed to be bothteing him the most and he shook his head so hard they couldn't even look in his ears. Barely got the cultures. Anywa the vet was going to send home pain pills and antibiotic pills. Tried to give him one of each there and even the vet and tech working together couldn't get them down him. He is a MASTER of hiding them, you think he has swallowed after you have rubbed histhrot for a couple of minute, he has swallowed a couple of time--then h goes to another room and pits them out. They tried to fool him with a pill pocket, but he would have no part of it. So finally it was a pain shot that would last about 2 days I think, and a penicillin injection and antibiotic to put in his ears. That visit with cultures on both ears, and two injections and $$ ointment to put in his ears came to $140. Then I had to take him back on Tuesday for follow up and his ears were a little better, so they flushed them out and got a ton of ol black wax out. He sruggled and he cried but he never growled or attempted to bit the vet nor tech while they were forcing tht wabnter in his ers. That wax had to come out so the med could gt in deep enough. Still have to put ointment in hi ears. That visit was $20.
