The Pet Hospital recommends pre-anesthesia blood testing to check for disorders of the liver, kidneys and blood. This blood test is not a guarantee against the risks of anesthesia, but will identify most conditions that can hinder recovery or even cause the death of your pet. We STRONGLY recommend for pets over 7 years of age.
Once the doctor begins the dental cleaning, he/she may discover tooth decay beneath the gum line. If so, it would be a danger to your pet's health and it may be necessary to do extractions. Are you ok with extractions?
Pets that are very small or females that are pregnant, we STRONGLY recommend fluids.
While undergoing surgery and after, your pet will receive a pain injection. In most cases the injection will not have lasting effects. Additional pain medication can effectively control your pets discomfort while recovering at home.
Some pets will naturally tend to "lick their wounds" to ease discomfort. If your pet licks too much, the incision site can become infected, which will require antibiotics to heal- *CONE*
