|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?
