Advice for Canine Teeth Extractions
My dog is a dachshund/whippet mix (27 lbs). My dog just had her teeth cleaned and two teeth were removed. Her two bottom canines (the big sharp teeth) are wearing away and rotting. The vet presented us with two options:
Option 1: Remove the canines. This is a very risky procedure because the roots of these teeth are large and deep. There is a chance that her jaw could fracture. This procedure would cost $800.
Option 2: A root canal on both teeth done by a doggy dentist. This is the safest procedure, but will cost $2800. (We live in Denver, so the cost of everything is high.)
I'm not sure what to do. We love our dog, but she's becoming quite expensive! But we also want to do what's best for her health!
