You DO look happy, Taz -- you look like you're smiling. You look spirited, too. I'm so glad you're doing so great!

I hope Penny is starting to feel a little better by now, Mr Skins.

I visited my dental specialist yesterday. He looked at my teeth and scheduled me for a cleaning next month. Last year I had many resorptive lesions and bad teeth. The specialist had to pull most of my teeth frown This time, the specialist only found gingivitis and one resorptive lesion. Keeping my teeth clean is important. Bad bacteria can affect my diabetes.

Hi kitty friends!
Actually, I have had most of my teeth pulled, with the exception of my fangs, and what Mommy refers to as my 'baby corn' teeth. All of it was due to my diabetes at the time. Mommy was horribly worried that I wouldn't be able to eat my dry food, and didn't know what to do. Our vet told her that I had been living with my bad teeth for a while anyway, and was probably not even chewing at that point. She was right. I learned to swallow my food whole. Mommy has since switched me to the canned version of my food, and it's MUCH easier to eat!
By the way...even though my teeth are gone, I can sure give Mommy a gumming from hell that makes her scream in pain! Heh, heh, heh!

Mom used to have my teeth cleaned once a year, like clockwork, but since I've recently entered into the beginning stages of CRF and have started subQs, my doctor is hesitant to put me under to clean my teeth. It takes me a lot longer to bounce back and my last rabbies (sp?) vaccine knocked me down for a whole week. So, both Mom and doc decided - no more vaccines. But what about my chompers? Right now, my teeth are pretty yucky and Mom is afraid of infection. Does anyone know if the doctors can clean my teeth without anesthesia? Or a light sleep - like twilight anesthesia, maybe?

Gino, I don't know anything about it, but back on page 1 of this thread, Alex said he had a cleaning without anesthesia. His was the 5th post down, page 1. It's something your mom could ask your vet about.

I'm not getting any more vaccinations, either.

I have some dental questions for you knowledgeable furts...

I have bad teeth; I am not in pain and my breath does not stink, but they are horrible looking. Two years ago the vet said not to bother getting them cleaned. He said to leave things alone and not stir up problems, he said if he starting poking around I'd probably have some removed because the cleaning might bring about problems (or something like that). This past week I had a check-up (I'm fine, it was routine) and the vet said to leave things alone and not do any dental work even tho he admits my teeth look bad. He also feels uncomfortable with the anesthesia. He asked again if I ate and if I was in pain to which mom answered no... (my vet is not a money kind of guy, so he does not recommend anything if he thinks it is not necessary, which is good, but we wonder sometimes if this makes him not pro-active too)

So here is what we want to know from all of you, why did you get your teeth cleaned? Was it because you breath stinks or you were in pain when eating or stopped eating, or was it because the vet recommended it because he just thinks it should be done?

Also who out there gets their teeth brushed? Mom thinks maybe she should start on all my siblings, to which daddy thinks is not necessary. So what do your pawrents think of all this teeth cleaning business?
