Cost of veterinary care & grooming for dog in Lisbon or elsewhere

Hello - I am wondering what the cost of routine veterinary care is in Lisbon (or elsewhere).

The exam

Vaccines (rabies, bordatella, parvovirus, distemper, etc.)

Fecal testing (for worms)

Heartworm prevention pills (are heartworms a risk in Portugal?)

Flea/tick prevention pills (are fleas or ticks a problem in Portugal?)

And what would it usually cost for a full grooming of an 18 pound miniature schnauzer?

Do they brush the dog's teeth?

(and I know this is gross but I have to ask - do they express the anal glands?)
