when you leave them to have their teeth cleaned? I had to leave our older cat (14) and my little Pom (almost 12) this morning to have it done. It broke my heart to leave them. The cat kinda likes all the attention that she gets there. They call her the sweater cat, because they said they have never seen a cat that likes to wear a sweater, and she loves hers. The little Pom though, has separation anxiety. She cries if I am out of her site for over 5 minutes. When I left her, she was crying and shaking. I worry about them having to be put to sleep to have it done, but they did need their little teeth cleaned. I just want this day to be over so that they will be back home. The little things did not understand why they did not get to eat this morning and kept looking for their food.

Here is a photo of the Pom the last time that she was on the way to the vet.
And this is her on the way back home

Yes! I hate it now that our oldest is 14 1/2. It really makes me nervous, but I know he's in good hands. He looks just like your pics. LOL

Poor little Pom. That first picture is heartbreaking! Yes, I worry too especially since my dog is so small.

They will be fine and back home soon.

We have bulldogs so anytime they have to be put under I worry. Thankfully Ozzy is an awesome chewer and his teeth are great (the vet was amazed at his physical last year)--he's 5 and Jax is two--so far so god with him as well.

My bully Boo Radley had a LOT of surgeries last year, thanks to a cherry eye surgery that failed and then caused complications. I worried every time I had to leave him a even cried a couple of times.

I never imagined I could love a dog so much...

I always worry about my pups when I have to leave them at the vet and I especially worry about them when they have to be sedated. My vet has recently started a non-anesthesia teeth cleaning. This is how I plan to have my pups teeth cleaned from now on.

My three are my kids... I worry about them any time I have to leave them at the vet. I'm very thankful to have such an amazing vet who texts me updates on them as soon as their procedures are done.

Maybe your vet could text or call you with an update?

I feel for you... It's hard to leave them.

I do a bed check of everyone be for I go to bed. I check kids, cats and DH. I can sleep well with out knowing everyone is where they should be.


I have quite a few learing disabilitys that effect my spelling a grammer. I do know my grammer and spelling suck. I have been working on this problem all my adult life.

The vet just called to get permission to pull one of the cats teeth. We thought that the infections that she was getting might be coming from that tooth and the vet said after looking at it, she feels certain that it is. Poor little baby is going to have a sore mouth for awhile. So out it comes and then she will do Jasmines teeth. She did say that both of their labs and pre-surgery work ups came out great. So that is comforting. I really like our vet and she seems to really care about the animals. Now, waiting for the next call telling me that they are alright. Here is a photo of my little precious kitty waiting for the vet to come in during a recent visit.

Vet called again. Have I mentioned that I love our vet. She personally calls instead of having assistants call. Apparently one of Jasmines teeth fell out on its own and had an abscess pocket. Both are ok and will be coming home with antibiotics. Glad that is behind us, but now we have to do it all over again with our other two dogs in a few months. The other cat's teeth are ok for now so we don't have to have hers done for awhile. If only the cats tooth had fallen out on its own, it could have saved us $70. I am so glad that we have the Wellness Plan through Banfield. I would hate to think how much we would owe if not for that. As it is this day is costing $145 after discounts. That is not to bad for the tooth pulling for the cat, plus the antibiotics and pain meds for both of them. They had lab work, full exams, sedation and the teeth cleaning all covered 100%. Doc says that I can pick them up about 4.

Check out non-sedated teeth cleaning. Its available all over SoCal. Costs maybe $40 for first cleaning then $20 thereafter.

I had heard about that and was going to ask my vet about it. Then I did a google search so I could print it off to take it with me and what I found was worrisome. What i read was that the service is questionable, illegal and the people doing that are unlicensed and many times untrained. Some are causing damage and injuries to pets. That is kind of scary.

Yes, I do. Leaving them at the vet's office for procedures is hard, even though I know it's for the best.

You Pom looks like my little guy. I always tease him about being such a girl. He's such dainty, pretty boy.

Of course! It is stressful, even more so because they don't really understand that you will come back for them, and that it is a necessary evil! I have cried every time I have had to take my pets to the vets (my husband does it the majority of the time). I am half hysterical trying to get them in the crate, and of course they cry the whole time, which makes me cry!
That picture of your Pomeranian is the most pitiful thing I have ever seen!

Glad you get to pick them up soon, hope your little kitty feels better soon. I would love to see a picture of the kitty in its sweater!

I'd love to see a picture of the kitty in his/her sweater too.

Yes, I always worry. I worry when I'm there with them. I try to stay calm, because I know they feed off of my emotions.

So far, with the two dogs I have now, (both rescues), I haven't had many health issues, (besides spaying the female, and allergies with the littly guy).

I find it hard to concentrate on running errands, or working when I am waiting to hear back from my vet about any health issues though.

Oh, your poor baby Pom! I know what you mean...my rescue Lab has terrible separation anxiety. And I can only imagine why, he's been bounced around for the start if his life. I'm with the other peas here, I worry. All. The. Time. Sometimes I even think it's more of me with the separation anxiety!

I'm sure your babies are so happy to see you when you pick them up!

Thanks for posting those link OP.

This:


One anesthesia-free dental technician said, "I use my legs to go over top of them so that they can't get up and then I use a hand scaler to go in and hand scale all the tartar off."

Poor babies!




Glad your furbabies are home now.
