    Tooth extraction for a cat

    Tooth extraction for a cat 1st Nov 08 at 12:23 AM
    My old siamese had a check-up yesterday, I suspected he had vision problems and I was right, he has a bad cataract in his left eye and a smaller one in his right eye...not much point in operating, he is old (14) and is indoors-only so when he goes almost blind he will know his way around the flat safely.

    He also needs to have a tooth extracted and I was quoted £350 to £400 - this seems really expensive. Usually I wouldn't worry because I am insured...but I don't think dental procedures are covered with will have to stump up the money.

    Does anyone (hello resident vets!) have any idea what this would cost in their area, I live in Central London? Also, if I found a vet who was cheaper, would it be out of order to go to that vet just for the one procedure? My current vet is brilliant (but expensive) and I don't want to leave the practice, I just want to get the best price possible for the tooth extraction. Any advice appreciated, cheers!
