Loca Has A Dental Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Loca is having a dental tomorrow, as well as having a small growth removed from her face (the vet isn't concerned about the growth). She will be 12 years old in a couple of months. Should I be any more concerned because of her age than I would be with a younger dog? All of her senior bloodwork is well within normal limits and the vet is very grey savvy.

 

thanks

Loca, we'll be thinking of you.

 

Robin, Gus went under at 12, I did worry, but then again I worry about hangnails and eye snot too. But if senior bloodwork was done, and we know she's healthy, just the normal worry jitters are fine. :unsure

 

p.s. My vet keeps an extra close eye on core temp, o2 and heart rate as well having the techs check the same more frequently during recovery.

Same here. But if she's basically healthy and sounds like she is, she should be fine. Sending prayers anyhow! Keep us posted!!!!

Our little 12 year old had a dental a month ago and did fine. She is a 54 pounder and acts like she is two. I am sure she will be just fine.

:goodluck

 

But I'm sure she'll be fine--Loca isn't going to let a little thing like a dental slow her down. :P

I'm just like Kerri and am a born worrier on a good day. I'm sure that Loca will be fine, Robin, and dancing on tables before sundown tomorrow. :P It sounds like you have a terrific vet.

I'm always a nervous wreck about anesthesia, esp with seniors. Loca sounds very healthy, so I'm sure she'll be fine. :):goodluck
