How Much Does Dog Teeth Cleaning Cost?

A dog’s oral hygiene and dental care are just as important as they are to humans.  Periodontal disease has been linked to many other health issues such as heart and kidney failure.  To prevent the build-up of plaque on the teeth and gums, regular brushing is necessary.  You could choose to use a daily dog toothpaste, such as Petco Natural, or a weekly cleaning product like Oravet.

If proper oral care is not used, your dog will need to have its teeth cleaned at a veterinary office, and unfortunately, this can be quite costly as the dog must be put under an anesthetic.  This can cost even more if the damage is so extensive that some teeth have to be pulled.
