Today Colby went for his dental (an often neglected part of every dog's health). I have never added up the cost associated with having 4 dogs. However, today's bill has prompted me to be a little more savvy with my canine finances. It cost us $388.69 for dental polishing, scaling, anaesthesia, blood work, extractions, & pain medication. I might need pain meds after I tally up my bills for a year.
