Hello Everyone!
Has anyone ever taken their kiddie for a dental cleaning? Apprehensive to put my baby under Anastasia (gives me anxiety) but he has grade two (not horrible) I just want to prevent further complications and take this opportunity as preventive care.
I have requested NO KETAMINE.
Just want everyone’s opinion and possibly some reassurance
Thanks again!

I would ask for a full panel blood test. It can help your vet determine a bit better if it safe to go under anesthesia. Also gives you a good baseline.

I’ve yet to do it for my sphynx, but I have gotten dental cleanings with my doggos!
Anytime they have to go under is stressful, but the blood test gives me peace of mind before the treatment. I also take comfort in knowing that his last HCM scan showed a perfectly healthy heart!

The weird things they do with their mouths afterwards is pretty funny too.
