This all depends on the veterinary practice you go to. To give you a rough estimate the scale and polish procedure will cost between about R600 and R1200 depending upon how long it takes. In animals with heavy calculus deposits it can take up to an hour to remove it using sophisticated ultrasonic equipment. Your local vet will be able toi give you a more accurate estimate. Please remember to always ask if the estimate includes: anaesthetic, hospitalisation, antibiotics and other consumables.
