Subject: Scaling for dogs
Received: Friday, 25 March, 2011, 2:00 PM
I am looking for a trusted vet and doctor who can perform scaling on my 2 year old Chihuahua. I am interested upon sending her to Toa Payoh Vets. I would like to know how much it would cost and what I should do to prepare her for the day of her visit.

I am Dr Sing from Toa Payoh Vets. Thank you for your email to Judy.
The dental scaling plus anaesthesia cost is around $250 normally. Decayed tooth extraction will be around $10-$20 per tooth extracted. Medication of antibiotics and pain-killer is estimated at around $20 if necessary. Blood test for pre-anaesthesia risk checking will not be done in normal healthy dogs and will cost $150 if it is needed but you will be informed first.
Do not feed or give water to your dog after 10 pm the night before the dental work. Bring your dog to Toa Payoh Vets at 10 a.m. The dog will go home around 5pm usually, after rest and recovery from general anaesthesia.
Please make an appointment at 6254 3326. Please indicate which vet you prefer. These are Dr Sing, Dr Vanessa Lin and Dr Jason Teo.
