Banfield's "free dentals" always costs me about $1,000. The free dentals used to be free, except for extractions.
Extractions are $150 each. They doubled the price from years ago. Now they charge for x-rays and a panoply of other services that are usually required for dentals and used to be free. They have figured out how to nickel and dime the customers from a fair deal to overpriced dental care.
The last three times I have gone to Banfield for free dentals for cats or dogs it has cost around $1,000. Good vet care is important and I have liked the veterinarians at Banfield, but their pricing is outrageous. They price their services like University hospitals and their services are not the same. When we have emergencies they throw up their hands and send us to the University.
I believe it is their popularity and their overpricing that is causing vet prices to surge nationwide.
These are just my opinions. I am darn tired of paying too much for my "free dental."
