Yeah, it sounds outrageous to me too. Tiger is only 18 months old. The Vet said that they have to dig down to get the roots and then sew up the gums, etc. I've tried to call a couple of other vets to see if they will even give me a "guestimate" of what it would cost, and no one will talk to me without a full dental cleaning. Like I want to pay a $120 AGAIN.
I have the x-rays that show that he has 8 cavities (resorptive lesions). I wish I could find a vet that would help lower the cost somehow.
My husband wants to just have Tiger euthanized, but we all really love him. The problem is that we spent $2,000 on MY teeth last year, and my husband just won't pay that for a cat.
Do you have any ideas for me?
