Hey everyone! Hope all is well. I'm trying to get caught up on everything! I scheduled a dental for Stella this Wednesday. The vet and I talked about what will go on and she already agreed to use the Iso. She says she prefers the gas maintenance over anything else, which was a real relief. The use of sedation always makes me nervous, but I trust all will go well. I did some reading here on the site again, but of course I have to ask you all if there is there anything else I should know about a dental? Anything I should avoid or look forward to?

Make sure no ketamine is injected either.
Oh yeah, I made sure they didn't use Ketamine. My vet does not like Ketamine and says she does not use it. We both agreed on the Iso, which is her first choice on many occasions.

The Iso is what was used for Wrinkles when she was altered.
Kay lost Gimmies during a dental so I am very scared of having one done.
The vet said Cleo might need one soon.

Oh that's so sad, M2M. :Cry: That's really scary... I am nervous about this being done, but I know it is needed.

For everyone worried about putting your pet under anesthetic and even if you are not worried, I reccomend paying an extra $50 for I.V fluids.
This will give access to the vien if there is an emergency, without having to worry about finding a vein. to inject lifesaving meds.
It will also prevent dehydration so your pet will feel less "hungover" after waking up.

Her dental went perfect. The only thing that wasn't perfect was her attitude when we picked her up. She was cranky, but I couldn't blame her. lol :Smile:

Glad it went well! Tell her no treats if shes not nice:LOL:
HAHAH! She was being silly because she would rub against me and let me pet her, but all the while she would start "whining" like she's saying "DON'T TOUCH ME."
