    Pets at Home have just paid out for Benji's second dental. The first was 54 weeks earlier. The total claim was for 212.95 (he had stasis so needed all the overnight stays/x-rays etc). They paid 124.15 (took off excess of 75 plus 10% ie 13.80)

    This was at the rabbit specialist vet where it's just listed as "rabbit GA dental". They didn't take off the cost of the burring...

    One of my bunnies needed her front teeth clipping every few months from age 3-5, every few weeks from age 6-8 and every 10 days in the last six months of her life. All were conscious dentals and cost around 20 a visit. Thank goodness we live just ten mins walk from a vet.

    It was stressful for her and quite expensive as not covered by any insurance.

    You've just lit the blue touch-paper .. Stand well back!

    Seriously - there are some rabbits for who the choice is a conscious dental or death. One of mine's heart stopped during a dental and though the vet revived him, she would never put him under again. If he hadn't had conscious dentals, he would've lost 4 years of his beautiful life and I would've said goodbye to him far too early.
