What is the actual cost of the anesthesia used for an animal dental cleaning?

Question by Peace_love_granola: What is the actual cost of the anesthesia used for an animal dental cleaning?
To put a 15 lb dog “under” anesthesia for a dental cleaning, what is the cost differential, compared to what a veterinarian pays to rent/buy a whole tank of anesthesia? I once heard that it was about 40 cents, but that seems nuts, since most vets charge between $ 250.00 and $ 1200.00 for a routine dental cleaning these days… Thanks for any help!

I’m sure it’s more than 40 cents. The gloves that each surgeon uses during the procedure are probably 40 cents.

I couldn’t find the price of a tank of anesthesia, but I do know that, at an average vet’s office, for a dog up to 10 lbs, anesthesia is $ 118 and it’s another $ 5 for every pound. When you add that to the cost of the actual procedure, you can end up in the $ 3-400 range. The best way to handle your pet’s dental health is to clean them yourself with a soft toothbrush once a week. They also make chew toys that are specially for dental cleaning. If your animal is showing signs of plaque (black or brown around gumline) there is a spray sold that you can use to help break it down.

Most animals don’t need surgical dental cleanings until they are older (like, 10+) as long as you take care of their teeth until then.
