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 are picking up our basset puppy on Saturday, a little excited we are!! Anyway, we also have a 5 year old greyhound, these dogs have notoriously bad teeth. You can watch in a matter of two weeks the tartar start to build up on his teeth. I am also a dental assistant so this of course makes me crazy lol. We give him once a week a knuckle bone, he loooveees them and they do an amazing job on keeping his teeth spotless. His vet is always so impressed on how clean his teeth are. The basset when old enough will also be introduced to this joyful tooth cleaner.
