I'm looking for a teeth cleaning and extractions discount
The only people who are able to offer discounts on treatments are your vets themselves. However, this will be at their discretion and unless they are running a special offer on dental treatments, which some clinics do from time to time, many vets are unable to cut costs significantly. If you think you might struggle with the bill, you could ask to pay in instalments, although this is again at the practice’s discretion and usually a service only extended for well known and loyal clients. There are also ‘care credit’ loans you can access to help pay for treatment.
Dental work for pets can seem expensive but few people appreciate the detailed and skilled work that goes into it. This is compounded by the fact that our pets rarely show any signs of mouth pain, even when they have nasty, rotten teeth that we know will be very sore indeed.
A good vet will take X-rays of your pet’s mouth to assess each tooth fully to their roots, perform extractions on those that need to be removed, which can require both drilling and suturing to ensure clean removal and easy healing, and they will scale and polish the remaining teeth.
For dental care, prevention is better than cure, both for your pet and in terms of cost! Many veterinarians recommend yearly scale and polishes to ensure excellent dental health and there are plenty of things you can do at home to keep your pet’s teeth in perfect condition.
If you are concerned about your pet’s dental health you should book them in for a check up with your local practice. They will be able to do a full assessment, advise you about any treatment that is required, discuss the likely costs and how you can manage the bill. | 04.20.16 @ 07:47
