I brought Sandstorm to the vet about three weeks ago, and he had some teeth examined, he needs a cleaning. The vet (I had never seen her before) said it would be around 300-400 dollars. I thought this was great, because I remembered paying around 700-800 for a tooth extraction and cleaning a few years ago. Well, this vet was WRONG and I am quite annoyed. I got the estimate in an email and the low estimate is around 700 to 1200 depending on extraction. Now I have to cancel and I feel bad, but I can't pay that. A few years ago we had to, Sandstorm had a broken tooth that needed to come out. We brush his teeth twice a week, it doesn't seem to make much difference. I do feel bad, because now we are not preventing future extractions by cancelling. Ugh! Thanks for letting me vent, I don't know if any other options are available, or how we can help his teeth now.
