Our Pomeranian just had a teeth cleaning and a total of 5 extractions. The top front 4 teeth were pulled and then a small tooth directly behind the canine.
Total bill was 440. (We are in Central Florida and go to one of the more expensive practises in the are, but felt it was totally worth it. We did the “macdaddy” package: prebloodwork, additional pain medication, full IV drip and all.)
For the extractions we were quoted 12.50 for the smaller easier ones to up to 100 for the molars as they have 3 roots.
We were lucky, all the teeth pulled were the 12.50 price. I knew when I dropped him off that some would need to be extracted, and said if they were on the lower end of price to just pull them, but if they would be on the higher end to give me a call. I would still have had them pulled, I just wanted to be prepared for the cost when I went to pick him up.
Dropped him off early morning, about 7am. I got the call at 1pm that he was out of surgery and awake and doing well. I was able to pick him up a little after 4pm. He was super groggy and out of it for the rest of the night. He did not eat, but we were expecting that. Ate normal the next morning.
It’s been about a week and a half since the procedure, and he is so much happier. No more smelly breath or pain and he is completely back to normal. No change in how he eats. We were told to feed him soft food for a week or so, then could go back to hard kibble. No hard plastic or rubber toys or treats of any kind for the same amount of time to allow his mouth to heal.
After the proceedure just make sure you complete the full round of antibotics so there is no infection. As far as the pain medication we were given to take home I only administered about 4 days of that before taking him off of it to make sure we was ok.
We are still waiting for the stitches to completely disolve but that will probably take another week or so.
It was totally worth it in the end, but we were very terrified of having him under the anesthesia. I did cry when I dropped him off and when I picked him up since he was not completly himself. But now seeing how much better he is, and not have smelly dog kisses I am kicking myself for not doing it earlier.
