Not against the rules. Not sure why that poster doesn't want to name the clinic in an open forum.Floydikus wrote: ↑Jan 20th, 2017 9:12 pmAm i missing something? Is it against forum rules to post helpful info? Why is private email necessary? Can you not just post the vet clinic? I honestly don't know, just asking as I am sure everyone would be interested to know the name considering the experience you had.

Didi_beee, I have 2 dogs that need dental cleaning. Can you tell me where you work so I can obtain quotes? Please and thanks.Didi_beee wrote: ↑Jan 20th, 2017 12:33 pmThe amount you paid seems pretty reasonable and comparable. I think the clinic I'm at would have been a bit lower with the 40% discount.
Just a reminder to everyone that Jan and Feb is pet dental month so most clinics run good promotions regarding dental work.

So your vet charged $400 for 2 extractions???whatthe555 wrote: ↑May 6th, 2017 7:32 pmmore of an fyi to everyone interested in getting their dogs teeth cleaned. My dog, a 5 year old Maltipoo (15lb), recently ended up having two teeth extracted during her cleaning. Total cost was $950 in DT toronto. Original Estimate was $550 for only the cleaning.

Even if it was a molar or premolar, or the canines.... $200 more each seems very high, unless their vet charged based on the time alloted for surgery, so more time meaning more anesthesia, etc. I would avoid these types of quotes.

Correct me if I am wrong, but are you are vet? I do not think you are.

Not a vet, but work at animal clinic... and have seen enough dental scaling procedures to have an idea that most 15lb 5 yr old dogs do not get extractions even with the most basic dental maintenance (brushing once a week, avoiding a wet diet, chew toys)...but of course not all dogs are the same and there are always exceptions. Whatthe555 did not mention if there was a higher end in the quote or if their vet informed them at the time of the procedure but if I was a pet owner and was expecting a $550 bill, I would be pretty pissed if the bill came up to $950 with out any notice. I'm sure most RFDealers here would be too.Blanche123 wrote: ↑May 9th, 2017 9:45 amCorrect me if I am wrong, but are you are vet? I do not think you are.
This is hardly my first rodeo with having teeth removed from a dog. There are many reasons why the cost may have been higher. Then there is gum work that may need to be done. It is not all black and white until the vet actually performs the surgery.
Our quotes always indicate a minimum and a maximum cost. Toronto is expensive.
