Teeth Cleaning By Vet

I was just wondering if anyone has ever had to have their dog's teeth cleaned while under?

We have an appointment with the vet on Monday to set a date to have it done. We have never had a dog with such tartar on their teeth and the vet is anxious to have it removed. We feel very good about it since his specialty is animal denistry and even clean the animals teeth at the St. Louis Zoo.

What we were wondering is what your dog felt like once they got home and what kind of diet they had to eat since I am sure their teeth and gums are very sore.

We are very nervous about the whole ordeal but will be glad once Annie has her gleaming teeth and smile back!

Thanks for any input you might have!!!!

I've had Stomps' teeth cleaned at least twice. Each time, within a couple of months, the vet was on me again to have them cleaned again. Stomps develops tartar incredibly quickly. But he's a rescue, and I think he was horribly neglected as a youngster and probably didn't get the appropriate nutrition, so now his teeth are rotting (he's at least 12 years old). That being said, he's always tolerated the anesthesia and he's perfectly find afterward. I've had Lightning's teeth done at least once, and he's never had a problem either.
