My little darling Phoebe is undergoing her first one today while I'm hundreds of miles away visiting my brother. She is a nine-year-old pekepoo. They are known for losing their teeth and she has none to spare, so I hope she doesn't lose any in the procedure. This is the first time the vet ever advised me to do it although I had told them to go ahead and do one a few years back when they were doing my bichon frise's. I came back from vacation and they told me they hadn't done one on her because she didn't need it. So I trust them when they say she does.
Daphne, EVERYTHING we do for our pets costs more than for ourselves!!!! It costs $45-50 to get her groomed, but $35 for me. Her flea/heartworm medication runs about $14/month whereas the only medication I take costs $3. It's a d*mn good thing they make up for it in adorability, don't you think?This message has been edited. Last edited by: sms29s66,

She's fit as a fiddle! We have a hard time with treats though. These two can tell time, and when he gets his chewie, shes waiting. I gave a bit of cheese today. Just a taste. She still will not grab with the front, but that's to be expected.
Happy healthy hearty little thing she is Still baffles us why someone gave her up...
When I told the vet my concern about anesthesia she said they do not totally put them to sleep to clean the teeth. Just use enough to mellow them out and they are fully alert within a half hour. Made me feel better. Will schedule a cleaning after the new year.
