Little dogs have terrible dental disease. Both of these breeds… dachshunds and miniature pinschers are just tortured by dental issues. Small breeds are easier to breed and have unfortunately been bred for looks and not health. When choosing a dog keep things like this in mind. Extensive dentals can cost thousands of dollars. They can often be 4 hour anesthetic events and extracting teeth is NOT anyone’s idea of a good time so know that starting to care for their teeth early versus waiting until they are seniors is ideal. This is why we think small dogs need health insurance! Dentals are mostly covered and can save you and your dog some serious pain and disease but without insurance most can’t pay for them easily.
