Cat teeth extraction cost

Common Questions and Answers about Cat teeth extraction cost


Cats after extraction have a normal life. My outdoor cat already had most of back teeth removal and it healed in the couple of days. We had to give him some pain medication and antibiotic for couple of days and later vet give him antibiotic shot for two weeks. Now he eats dry food and everything else without a pain. He is healthy and happy now. Unfortunately I can't give you a price, but it is worse it - it's a member of your family.
When they pull the tooth, they should clean the rest of the teeth...That is common practice.....This is considered a doggie dental w/extraction...... Long term tarter without periodic cleanings leads to dental disease...Not only is it painful, the rest of the teeth start falling out as the gums recede....Once the untreated Bacteria from the Dental Disease enters the blood stream, it starts damaging the organs (Particularly the Heart).....
13-yr-old male Burmese cat diagnosed with diabetes about 6 weeks ago. We are managing with insulin shots. During the course of exams for diabedies we discovered two teeth needed to be extracted. Vet did that yesterday. We brought Oscar home yesterday afternoon. He was lethargic, wouldn't eat, or drink. Same this morning - wouldn't eat or drink and very lethargic. Took him to vet today where he spent most of the day.
If your vet has dental X-Ray equipment all the roots of your cats teeth can be examined, for the best prognosis. Please also have your cat checked for Bartonella infection, since one of the symptoms of this disease is chronic gum infections. It would also be a good idea to brush your cats teeth daily once the next dentistry is performed.
She suggest that since my teeth are rotting from the gumline I should get all my teeth extracted and get implants. I have had on every single one of my teeth fillings since 05' done over like 3 to 5 times just in a 3 year period. Just with dental work I would need definatly 3 extractions, 3 inplants, 3 inplant crowns and a ton of fillings and over 15 crowns, 3 partials,etc, which would be at least 30,000.
Well she is 15yrs old and lost all teeth except the bottom fang on right side it is black at bottom of tooth. I can't afford $300+ for extraction. I called a vet today and asked it we could just wrap her up numb it and pull it w/out cost of anesthesia I was told no. I mixed tuna juice w/ amoxicillin cap(500mg) and gave her 32mg hoping to help her infection and pain. Have you ever known any vets to use local to pull a tooth?
He gave me an itemized breakdown of what it would cost - $359 to $408 and that is for EACH cat, so that means I could be spending anywhere from $716 to $816 on cat teeth. I wanted to know if these charges on the list are on the high side and what, if any, are "padding".
Since I do not have dental insurance I have lost all but nine of my teeth. I have upper dentures. My lower teeth are rotting because I don't have the money to get root canals, much less implants. I spent thousands trying to save the upper teeth and they are all gone anyway. I have tried to go to the dental school clinics but they turned me down because my problems are so bad. I got on a no-interest payment plan but there is not enough credit to do what needs to be done.
I'm also curious about your question. My husky just chipped his k9 tooth and after calling around, I found out it costs $500 to extract it and $1200 for a root canal. It's not infected yet, but I imagine it will be soon because you can see the pulp. I wonder how your vet can tell your cat's tooth is abscess One thing I did learn is that sometimes teeth changes the structure of your pet's mouth and infections could be harmful to kidneys.
I admitted my cat to a vet in New Jersey after she was suffering from constipation for several days and lactulose/diet changes offered no relief. I am not being faced with a $800 dollar bill for 2 nights stay, enemas, fluids, and blood work. Is this excessive? Around two years ago I had the same procedure at a different vet and it only cost $250. Have prices accelerated this fast?
I had such a phone call too before when each needed an extraction or two...but holy cow even with that both my boys didn't cost more than $500.. so $1500 is a real shocker....had they had dental cleanings before? My Sami is going in for cleaning on the 17th, I hope there are no surprises with him..... My Nemo has had to to to a homemade diet last spring, and his teeth as a surprise consequence have NO plaque... Sami so far is refusing the transition, but I'm a working on it.....
We had an 18 yr old cat go in for a tooth extraction and she also had a heart murmur. She did fine and our vet was nervous putting her under. She did fine and had no weird side effects that I can remember. I've also had to deal with constipation with my last 18 yr old kitty. My vet had me give her docusate sodium. This can be purchased over the counter. I can't remember the actual mg of the dosing and you have to be extremely careful that is the ONLY ingredient.
For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
I called the oral surgeons office and was assured this is normal. It feels like the teeth near the extraction are achy and pressure. My lower jaw hurts, my jaw by the ear hurts and the side of my neck at times, usually in the morning when I swallow or move it just right. I am calling again on Monday to demand to be seen by the dr. From searching the web, I have not come across these symptoms. Most people feel better after a few day. I wake up in pain. I am so sick of this.
My cat recently passed away just 10 days after receiving Convenia. I read your article AFTER the vet administered this drug for rhinitis. I wish I read it sooner... I would have never allowed Convenia. The vet said they "have good luck with this drug", no counter indications, no side effects to worry about. My cat Cloud was 16 years old. He began coughing and sneezing in April, and when I saw blood droplets in the sneezing I tool him to the vet.
It took two years to research, find orthodontists, find a surgeon and lobby my insurance. Then at the end of 2005 I get braces for surgery (which cost 1500 dollars more than regular because you get 4 little extra hooks put on before surgery...) Then the surgery in 2007 and another in 2008 to fix the nose.
These scratches are almost always about two-three inches long and there are usually two or three of them separated by about an inch. They are always roughly parallel to one another. They are exactly as if a cat has scratched me (I have no pets). Since the scratches are quite superficial, they tend to heal quickly within two or three days. I don't have fingernails to speak of, and I don't sleep with feather pillows or comforters/duvets, so there's no way they can show up in my sleep.
The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.00, so there’s no income, and if, on the outside chance, a patient falls in the shower, they can sue me. What doctor’s gonna recommend this?” He’s right, doctors aren’t stupid—that’s why they’re doctors.” If you don't wish to take the risk involved, then at least you may wish to try the Dr.Grossan Hydropulse Nasal Irrigation System.
I have some swelling or slightly increased muscle tone in the jaw and pain in the lower jaw and teeth (having two horizontally impacted bottom wisdom teeth that never got removed probably doesn't help) I was experiencing (and still am) jaw and throat tightness, neck stiffness, and what the doctor referred to as "trigger points" in my back.
Hi I recently was horrified to develop the same drop dead smelly nose reek that many members have posted about. It was arguably the most appalling stench I've ever had and I'm 57. In desperation when it developed very late, the night before my family was to arrive for a weekend visit, I tried a home made saline nasal solution. Using a 12 hour over the counter spray bottle, emptied of its contents, I added my own saline - an ounce or two warmed a bit- into the plastic spray bottle.
I just had minor dental work and dentist says I grind my teeth (never knew), but doubts TMJ due to no other symptoms. Let's all share the answers if and when we get them. Dentist recommended checking blood pressure and inner ear.
I'm just glad we rescued him. We also rescued my cat from the Humane Society and she was getting ready to be put down, too. I wish I could rescue them all! I drive my husband crazy because I or my teenage daughter seem to find all the strays in the neighborhood! What can I say? I'm an animal lover! Thanks for writing!
We won't know for sure until we get the results from the autopsy report. I loved my dog dearly and it cost $236.00 to have her cremated so i could keep her ashes with me always. Ince she was kept on my property at all time God only knows how she got poisoned. Someone had to come on my property to do thlis. Ignorant people are under the mis conception that all pits are violent. Mline was'nt. She was the sweetest and most gentle dog i have ever owened. I will never stop missing her.
He suspect the cause to be due to sodium and wanted to prescribe another medication which will minimise sodium in my blood system. But I was reluctant because he said the downside is that excess extraction of the sodium can lead to low blood pressure and gout. I have also tried TCM with accupucture for 2 - 3 months before I came to this site. The vertigo seem to be under control, but the noise problem was still as bad as before, and like what many sufferers say, it's driving me crazy.
I also have athlete's foot that has never gone away even with prescription medicine. I did get tested for parasites when I did the cat scans and blood tests and colonoscopy, and that was negative but I've read that parasites can be very hard to detect. I just found a paper that describes a lot of my symptoms when I was looking for information about something completely unrelated I just came across the experiments with parasites by accident. The symptoms that the animals had I have also had.
I have 2 and a cat with an attitude. I inherited him after my dad passed away! The big one is 1/2 chocolate lab-german short hair, she is a hunting dog and the newest addition is my beagle. Got her from a rescue shelter. Had to put my old girl down in January, she was 13 *sniff* *sniff*. You have to be 1/2 insane to have a beagle in the first place!!!
