Hello Patrick, The cost includes the anesthesia as well as the cleaning and really depends on the health of the pet's teeth. Best, Beth Phimister, DMV

I give my dog a raw chicken neck every weekend (get 'em at Magnani's, all natural). Since we started doing this, her brown teeth including molars are now all shiny white. She also gets extra calcium this way and loves the treat. My vet recommended it so we might avoid the teeth cleaning (I'm not crazy about the anesthesia part since a friend lost his otherwise healthy 4 year old sheltie in a teeth cleaning). The vet says her teeth and gums look great now. If you do this, be sure to hang with your dog till it's all gone.
