So I had always brought my cat Buster to a clinic every year to get his yearly shots. Well now that he just turned 5 and has horrible bad breath...and yucky teeth, I decided it was about time to have him really checked out by a vet....
Well the vet checked him and everything looks great, she also told me that pets do not need to get vaccinated every year.....which I never heard before! She said every three years was about right, and it is actually unhealthy to get them vaccinated every year, so that was a suprise for me!
She also checked Buster's teeth and said that he needs a dental cleaning really bad, and for his age (5) they should not be this bad. So I asked her how much it would cost and she said between $650-1050! And he would also have to be put to sleep (which I hear is bad for animals)!
So I do not know what to do because this is very expensive, and the visit itself was $100 just to get a check up and a he did need a lukemia shot bc of my sisters cats go outside all the time, since Buster only stays inside....she thought he needed it!
Can anyone help me out!! Jersey vets in my area are so expensive, but I want to treat his teeth if he really needs it!!
