Default Cost of teeth extraction

Leya has to get two teeth extracted, her baby teeth didnt fall out, the upper immature canines. A certain...animal hospital gave me a ridiculous estimate of $400. Is this normally the cost of this procedure? Have you had this done to your chi as yet and how much did it cost you?

I just got Sophie spayed, microchipped, and had 4 teeth extraceted all at the same time for $375. If I were you, I'd shop prices. That seems really high. I know my vet charged something like $15 per tooth, plus the cost of the anesthesia. However, it also can depend on how difficult the proceedure is in your situation. Good luck

That seems a bit high to me. Cosette had to have a baby tooth extracted a few months ago that was growing out of the roof of her mouth. In total it cost about $100. Maybe check prices with a couple other vets?

Yes, I called a vet in Florida, I took her there when I first got her. He said it should run about a $100 worst case .... Also, up here in DC they want $80 for the microchip and there wants $50. What a rip off DC can be. That price $400 just seem so ridiculous. It should not be a difficult extraction I was told by the vet in Florida.

Are you willing to drive? I would find a vet outside of DC although VA is prob expensive as well. I use a vet in Davidsonville Md the name is

Four legs animal Hospital Dr. Bassford 410-798-5222. She is a great vet but prob about 45 mins from you.

The vet is in VA, thanks for the number I'll give them a call, however I might get it done in Florida when I go mid-may and do the microchip at the same time. Is she expensive...? ?? Just in general since you have been going to her.

they never pulled rockys canines and he just recently lost one. he just has one more, and hes already 9 months old. if you wait until may they may fall out on their own, so i thinks its a good idea maybe to wait.
