Take Care of Your Dog’s Teeth & Save a Bundle!

Jessie, the money-conscious dog: Simple math tells you 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. A typical cleaning of a dog’s teeth can cost $75.00 -$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 there’s advanced periodontal disease, surgery or extractions can cost $1,000.00 or more, not to mention the additional pain and suffering for your dog!
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!
