I'm trying to decide if we should have our dog's teeth cleaned at the vet's. I've heard a couple of horror stories about people who had bad experiences with their dogs. My questions for folks who do have this done...
1) How often?
2) What to expect afterwards RE sore gums, feeding, recovery, etc.?
3) How do you know your vet would do a good job and not hurt the dog?
4) What about the anaesthetic & associated risks? Our dog had a bad reaction to sedatives when we had her fixed -- I'm loathe to have her put under again.
5) Does anyone use a tooth scaler on their dog? Tips?
Any advice on this topic? Thanks!!
