    How much for teeth cleaning for a dog?

    My Schnauzers teeth are trbl, anyone have their dogs teeth cleaned? Just wondering how much i might be spending.
    We are also looking for a new Vet, any recommendations? We used to go to the brothers up north Ankeny near Dahls.

    Re: How much for teeth cleaning for a dog?

    Usually costs a few hundred as they will anesthetize your dog to do a thorough cleaning. Or, just brush them on a semi-regular basis. I do that with my labs and the vet is always amazed at how clean their teeth are.

    We take our dogs to Banfield @ PetSmart on University. Was happy with them for quite a while, but recently seems like they are putting on the hard sale to upsell you on services for your pet.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Probably looking at ~$250-300 minimum.

    We take ours to Family Pet Vet on Army Post, but we get their $200 dollar price which is a Feb. only special (National Dog Dental Health Month or something). Not sure what normal price is.

    Probably tack on another $100 or so if they do x-rays.



    Short version: not cheap.

    Re: How much for teeth cleaning for a dog?

    We do Banfield and have the plan that does their teeth for free. It costs $8 more per month than their standard plan, but in the end, the cost of teeth cleaning is more than the extra cost of increasing the plan. No issues with Banfield.

    I tried brushing my dogs teeth, but he wouldn't let me and it was a pain in the butt to force it on him.

    Re: How much for teeth cleaning for a dog?

    Our vet keeps saying out schnauzer needs it to. They said it would be $400-$500 out the door. But they also made it sounds like they wouldnt do it unless we did the gums and x-rays too as that may show the cause of a lot. I wonder if I'm getting taken though so I would like to hear from others as well.

    Check with Westfield Vet off 86th behind Dahls. You could also attempt to negotiate the price. A lot of vets will do that.

    That's what happens when you lick your own butt.

    Re: How much for teeth cleaning for a dog?

    There are some dog foods that you can put out once a month that do a pretty good job of cleaning. One of those is Purina healthy smile which my vet down here recommended. I just switched both my dogs to 100% that and they seem to enjoy it while keeping their breath stank and yellow teeth under control.

    TIL that people pay for their dogs to have pearly whites.
