Are there any other vets around that you could check for lower prices? $700 sounds expensive for something like an infected tooth...though the $90 sounds pretty normal. It does look painful... If you can't afford to have his mouth checked more thoroughly under anesthesia & for treatment of whatever the cause is, it might be best to have him euthanized. Mouth issues can become a bigger issue quickly, if infection or tumors spread to the eyes and brain. I know it's hard, but keep in mind that you probably don't want to wait until he's clearly suffering, miserable, and refusing to eat or anything else before you give in. I'm sorry you guys are going through this.
