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!!!!

We have to take Dixie in to have her teeth looked at. I am not looking forward to it, she has been through a lot so far. Apparently when the previous owners had her the chained her to a tree and she tried to chew the chain off. I am a little anxious about it because she is not going to enjoy this and she is just starting to really trust us and settle in with us.
