If you’re a new dog owner, you may be wondering about dog toenail removal costs.
As with almost everything else related to pets, there is no “one size fits all” answer.
This can make it difficult to figure out what the process will cost or whether your pet insurance will cover the procedure.
In this article, we break down the costs and risks associated with having your dog’s toenails removed in order to help you make an informed decision.
How much does dog ingrown toenail removal cost?
As with other medical procedures, the cost of a dog ingrown toenail removal will depend on the severity of the infection and what is involved in your pet’s procedure.
The main factors that affect the price of this procedure include:
- The size of your dog
- The location of the infected nail
- Whether or not you need anesthesia
What is the adverse reaction of dog toenail removal?
As a pet owner and dog toenail removal expert, I want to share with you the possible adverse reactions that can occur after your dog has his or her nails trimmed.
- Your dog may have pain after the procedure. If this is the case, you’ll need to treat them with medication for pain relief.
- Some dogs may need anesthesia in order for the veterinarian to trim their nails properly and safely; however, anesthesia can be dangerous so it should only be used if absolutely necessary by a professional veterinary surgeon who knows how to handle anesthetized pets very carefully in order not cause any further injury or harm.”
- In some cases, excess bleeding can occur after nail removal due to damage to surrounding blood vessels during the procedure. This is usually minor and easily controlled with pressure bandages or topical medications such as styptic powder or cornstarch.
Does pet insurance cover dog toenail removal?
There are a few things to keep in mind if you want to know what pet insurance covers.
First, make sure that the procedure is considered medically necessary by your pet’s veterinarian (i.e., not just cosmetic).
Second, check with your insurance provider to see if they offer a discount on this procedure. Some do and some don’t—it varies by company.
Some people might be tempted to pay out-of-pocket for dog nail removal, but there may be an opportunity for you to save on the cost of getting your pup’s nails trimmed: ask your vet about discounts they offer for regular customers or memberships at their practice!
They may be willing to cut prices significantly if you commit yourself as a loyal client who will be coming back regularly for other services as well (like vaccinations).
