Springer Spaniel Dental

Hello I wanted some opinions as I am worried sick about anaesthetic.

We think our springer is about 12 or 13 (rescue). As far as I know he is healthy, just typical older dog arthritis but slim, bright and still walking 4 miles a day.

Would you go ahead with a dental at this age, as you can never be aware of all health issues?

This is something that you really need to talk with your vet about. If you're noticing coughing, you definitely need to call your vet. Your vet will be able to evaluate your dog and point out any health issues that could cause problems with a dental cleaning. Vets are more than happy to discuss potential risks with you, and they are far more knowledgeable than a bunch of internet strangers who have never seen your dog before.
