She's in for her dental today and I am a nervous wreck. She is getting two caranssial teeth out.

 

I posted yesterday about the price being $757.00. I know it sounds expensive she's my baby. I called the vet that did her last dental because I just wanted to see what they charge and the tech told me that they don't put in an IV line and give fluids. That worries me and I am glad she is not there anymore.

 

Isn't it standard protocol to give fluids?

 

Thanks everyone! Greytalk is a life saver! I know we all love these amazing dogs so much!

Wishing Bea the best for her dental. Usually, for a dental, an IV line is not protocol. At least it wasn't at my former vet/employer in Florida. For major surgeries, yes. I assume it is because usually, for a simple dental, dogs and cats aren't under very long, and the amount of anesthesia is closely monitored. For large numbers of extractions, an IV line might be placed.

 

Good Luck, and lots of love to you and your baby!

Keeping Bea in my prayers today. :hope

 

 

Thanks! I will post when I know how she did. Her appointment is sometime between 11:30 am - 2:00 pm.

 

I hope she handles the anesthesia ok!

Thinking of your little girl this am.

As for fluids, it's standard procedure here to "pump" fluids and not just use a drip. Safest route to go!

Bea is out of surgery and the vet said she did great. I am not sure what shape she'll be in when I pick her up but at least she made it out ok!

Glad to hear Bea did well today. Sending good thoughts for a rapid recovery. By the way, my very grey-savvy vet did pre-op IV fluids for Mandy with her last dental -- she wanted to make sure Mandy was well-hydrated. And it was about $750 with 1 extraction.

Excellent!

Come on home Bea

 

 

She's home. She ate already too, which is surprising! The vet said to give her only half the amount of food and Bea inhaled it! She's very whiny but the vet said it is because of the drugs she still has in her. Let's hope Sizzle does this well!

Glad she's doing well. My vet runs IV for each and every surgery no matter how long or how young the dog. I know some vets only hydrate the elderly and really ill, but mine believes in hydrating everyone especially since some of them have been without water for 12+ hours. if they get nauseated from the meds/anesthesia then they'll go longer without at home. My vet is ridiculously expensive, but that's the extra touch that does make it worth it to me.
