Getting my dog's teeth cleaned at the vet office - Help!
hello everyone! i am taking my dog to get her teeth cleaned by the vet in about 5 days. she has build up on most and is not feeling comfortable as she rubs her front paws against them. we asked the vet to use the gas anesthesia which i read somewhere is less dangerous. my dog is 8 1/2.
we got a call from them today saying the doctor wants her to take antibiotics for three days before the procedure. is this normal? i trust them, but
i am just freaking out, scarred about the whole thing. can feel the anxiety building up as the day approaches. one of the reasons is that a month ago we lost our other dog of almost 11 years. we had to put her down due to tumors in the chest literally the following day after we found out. very, very, very hard for all of us.
if anything happens to this one, i know i'll lose my mind. is there anything else i should ask them to do or i should do to help recovery, comfort and minimize risks?
can anyone share a success story and help me feel a bit better about this procedure? thank you all!
