I'm curious to know what other people whose cats have had the same procedure done paid for it and in what area it was done. If the savings are significant it could be worth it to travel.
Dr Wiggs unfortunately passed away but the clinic is up and running and they are still doing the stomatitis cocktail. I did it with my cat but unfortunately it stopped working after a while. It works great for others though. The phone number to the clinic in Dallas is 972-385-8400.
My guy had to have a few of his teeth removed, an inspection of the mouth (for a liquid filled bump on his jaw), and a few other small things while he was out and it was $1,700 CAD. One fang was broken off in a fight and a few others were in poor shape so for about 5 teeth it was around $1,200 or so. It is not cheap but I didn't shop around because I trusted the vet so I may have found a better deal.
I live in Canada. My cat had *many* teeth removed (quite a few had been removed previously) so not quite a full mouth extraction but a lot of work. I live in Canada and it cost about $1500 or so from what I recall. Something like that.
I have a 10 yo neutered male cat that has bad Stomatitis, I have never heard of the disease before and it was diagnosed rather late. The cat is refusing to eat anything solid. I mash up soft cat food and add some kind of fish juice
I have done a lot on internet searching for answers but there doesn't seem to be a lot of help for the disease. It sounds like extraction is the only way to go ?
I not only live in the Chicago area but have had 2 different cats that needed teeth pulled due to FORL. The best specialists I have seen are at - The Chicago Cat Clinic in Chicago: http://chicagocatclinic.com, Arlington Cat Clinic in Arlington Heights: http://arlingtoncatclinic.com, and not specifically for dental issues but excellent specialists at - Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove: http://www.vetspecialty.com. The later diagnosed and saved our dog when he was only 3 yrs. old and prolonged his life for 13+ years. We did once take a cat to another animal specialty hospital but had a very bad experience and ended up going to one of the above mentioned hospitals instead. I'd be glad to answer any questions or concerns you have in a private message. I don't remember the exact price of our cats' dental bills but might be able to find it. Please keep in mind that it's not cheap but the old saying rings true, "you get what you pay for." We were extremely pleased with the professional and exemplary care received by the specialist we went to.
