schultzlc Posted March 7, 2016 Share Posted March 7, 2016 I tried out a mobile vet for the very first time today for my girls' annual appointments. Everything went very well, they're in good health, the mobile vet was a much less stressful occassion for them, and the vet van itself was well-equipped. That said, both of my girls could use a dental this spring. Luna's teeth and gums are in decent shape, but she'll be nine in a couple of months, and I'd rather have some work done on her now than when she gets older. Nova's teeth and gums are not as good. In spite of daily brushing, her teeth have been a big challenge for me. In fact, she was prescribed some antibiotics today to help with some inflammation. This vet has worked with greyhounds before, and seemed well-versed on their sensitivities. He could perform the dental procedures right in his motorhome thingy in my front yard. Everything would be done right there, and then my hounds would be brought back into my home to recover, and the vet would be on-call, willing to return should any problems arise. The benefit is that my girls wouldn't have to recover kenneled at a vet office, which would be quite stressful for Luna, and possibly for Nova as well. The downfall is that I would have to witness said recovery. Has anyone ever gone this route before? Any experiences you can share? This is the first time I will have to have my dogs anesthetized, and I am a nervous wreck just thinking about it. Are there any questions I should ask about pre or post-op procedure, about the anesthesia, medications, etc? I want to go into this as well-informed and prepared as possible. Thanks in advance!
