Guest Addie Posted July 23, 2013 Share Posted July 23, 2013 Sooooo... I'm sure a lot of you know that I lost Addie a year and a half ago to a dental. Well, we were fostering Logan at the time and we ended up keeping him. I have always been very good about brushing the dogs teeth (even more so after.....) So as luck would have it I have been battling with Logan's teeth, and it appears that I may have lost, I brush his teeth everyday and have been using the vetz life spray. They have just been getting worse, how is it even possible??? He has tartar but not a lot, some gum recession and it looks like a bottom tooth has a lot of recession and may have some root decay that I just noticed. I'm just sick over it! My friend (who is a vet tech at the clinic I go to) said some dogs are just like that and there is not much you can do other then slow it down. So we have been going back and forth about how we can make it more safe for him (and me)? One thing she said was to not do a pre-med and just get it done quick. But what if he needs a tooth pulled? Could a local be used too? Part of me says "DON'T DO IT YOU STUPID FOOL!!!!!" and another very small voice says "stop being such a baby, if you can't take care of him you shouldn't have him" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
