    teeth cleaning for dogs who have heart murmur and small weight

    I have 2 dogs that I want to have their teeth cleaned. I talked to a lady in the park about her dog who got its teeth cleaned, and she said that the dog died during anesthesia I'm very scared and worried about this. My older dog is fit and is 16lbs. He has heart murmur called left aeortal ventrical something??? And my other dog is 5lbs. Are there any alternatives? Do you think the weight and heart problem will make teeth cleaning very risky?

    There's a change of something happening any time a dog, or person, goes under, but the risks are probably low. My ex-bf's dog went in for an ear hematoma I think, and didn't make it. Come to find out, she lives outside for 6 years with no vaccines or heartworm prevention. Mild heartworm, and cardiac issues that didn't come up on the blood work. You don't know how the lady at the park took care of her dogs, or if it was just a freak bad thing that happened.

    Search this forum and the Food forum for feeding raw bones to clean teeth. It does work. it won't help your old dog if he has issues like abcesses/loose teeth that need to be pulled, etc. If you opt for veterinary teeth cleaning, get blood workup done first.
