Pet's Fee
 
Holy Crap

I just took Puss to the Vet's and they said that he needs to have his teeth cleaned? never had a cat's teeth cleaned before is this a US thing? Well I am going to have it done because I would hate to think he was in pain.

Rushie is going to have a field day on this one, they told me that it is going to cost $175 plus an extra $85 for the blood test if I want it and the heart monitor? Holy Crapper that's $270 bucks to clean the cat's teeth:huh:

The OH reckons that I am wacked paying this and that cat's teeth clean themselves?

Any thoughts am I getting ripped off the cat is 4 years old.

up to you poppy but my two 11yr old pussies have only had their teeth cleaned twice since they turned 7. persians are known for having poor gums and that's the only reason i had them done.

I have a friend that took her cat to the vet last week and was told that her cat needs I don't know what work done in her mouth and it's going to cost $890 :blink:

Cannot cats get their teeth clean by biting on special things like dogs do?

If you have an electric tooth brush with a spare "end" you can DIY... that's all they do at the vets ! If you want you could bring em round and I'll do it... $200 bucks for 3 minutes work !

Either clean them yourself or give Puss cat treats that will do the job for you. I have had cats all my life and they have lived well into their teens and never had their teeth cleaned.

My two female cats are 9 years old. I cannot recall having their teeth cleaned at all.

However, we give them crunchy treats on a regular basis as well as soft ones. They appreciate the extra attention and the treats seem to do the job.

Their teeth are as white and as healthy can be.

Incidentally, they still have all of their claws, too. I couldn't bear to put them through that awful task of having their nails ripped out:mad:

My older cat has had her teeth cleaned once but that was because she broke one and had to have it removed so they cleaned the remaining ones at the same time. The baby, well we are hoping to avoid the expense by cleaning them ourselves. We do it once a week and she actually comes running now when she sees the toothbrush. The fee for blood tests I would question. My vet only did that to our cat because the cat was over 7 years old.

OM-******-G!!! It is a cat for god sake!!! Who the hell cares!??!!? Does it hunt for food? Does it go out on dates? Does it need shiny clean healthy teeth? No. Of course not. A fool and his/her money are easily parted. Send the money to some charity and save a starving baby. Give it to a bum on the street or just go and pee it up the wall in some crappy bar. Most importantly of all though, get a grip!!!!

Some people on here have more money than sense. I almost wish I were a pampered cat. How about this for a thread - My mail adopted 3 month old son in Africa has AIDS. Is three quid a month too much to pay to keep him alive? Pathetic thread. I am disgusted. Flame away and good luck to the moggy.
