Jessie, the money-conscious dog: Just so you know, simple math can tell you that taking care of your pet’s teeth is part of the equation when it comes to good oral health care, vet bills, and other related costs. Did you know that a typical cleaning of a dog’s teeth can cost anywhere between $75.00 and $350.00, depending upon the difficulty of the job?
The average insurance claim submitted by those with pet insurance for dental care is $292.00!
If your dog has advanced periodontal disease, surgery or extractions can cost $1,000.00 or more!
Drum roll, please…..Daily brushing with dog toothpaste costs roughly $30.00 – $60.00 a year.
So, all I am suggesting here is that taking care of your pet’s teeth at home on a regular basis can save you tons of money in the long run. You wouldn’t skip a day cleaning your teeth, would you? Why would you risk the health of your pet? Think about it. Once you do the math, it should give you and your pet something to smile about!
