He will be just fine.

I also have to take our Schauzer to get her teeth cleaned.

He's back, and all is well. He didn't need any extractions, and all his teeth were good. What a difference! You don't realize how bad they were until you get them cleaned. They really did a nice job. They gave him some antibiotics for a few days, and all of his blood panels came back good. So he's in real good shape.

We had our rescued Papillon's (10lbs) teeth cleaned and she had to by put under, it took several days for her to be back to normal and decided that we'll not do that in the future. Small dogs are too hard to dose accurately.

Good to hear! I suspect my two feline thugs will need their teeth cleaned soon, and I tend to worry about them as you did your dog.

Goodness, that reminds me of a dog experience several decades ago. It was a sunny, crisp upper peninsula February day and I was taking a lunch break sitting under a pine tree where I was doing a timber inventory. I heard beagles howling in the distance all morning and a snowshoe hare came hopping by me just a few feet away. Minutes later two beagles came trotting along, howling with their noses on the rabbit trail. I heard a few shotgun blasts throughout the afternoon. On my way out of the woods, I ran into the grizzly old hunter with one beagle tagging along.

When I asked where the other beagle was, he explained that she was getting old and lame, so he shot her! duh One of my first exposures to the sometimes harsh realities of life in the northern wilderness.

Wishing the OP's dog the best!


Man, that reminds of Of Mice and Men.

That's great! My old dog had to have her teeth cleaned and some extracted. She was all groggy and jumping up on top of the couch.

I had out patient surgery with deep anesthesia. I was so happy to wake up from it.

Perfect. He might be pretty young, given all his teeth were good. He's gonna feel great.
I'm sure you both feel better...

One of my 2 cats had to have surgery to repair his paw, leg bones and tendons.
It took a specialist orthopaedic.

He's doing good. He had some water and food. So far so good. He's keeping it down. He should sleep it off tonight. He is coughing a little. I think it might be from the ventilator they put down their throats when they're under. He's probably a little sore from it. But overall everything looks to have gone well.

Glad to hear ur little fella did well..fwiw, I had a vet tell me that dry food is best as it "scrubs" the teeth whereas moist doesn't. I personally would not feed my dog chicken bones as I believe they can splinter and potentially cause digestive issues👇, it's just not worth the risk especially when there are things out there that work better and without the risk..but to each his own.

My dog had a lot of tartar, the Vet took a pair of pliers and the tartar broke off in pieces.

It is the cooked chicken bones that splinter.....raw does not and is very good for their GI tract. https://www.thehonestkitchen.com/blog/6-reasons-to-throw-your-dog-a-raw-bone/

This morning I have to get some antibiotics and anti inflammatory medication into him. That should be an adventure. The antibiotics can go right into his food. So I'm not anticipating any issues.

The vet gave me a small plastic syringe to suck the anti inflammatory medicine out of the bottle. (It's graduated in pounds for the weight of the dog). Then shoot it directly into his mouth. And hopefully down his throat after he eats. At least that's the plan. We'll see how it goes.

Well, you can feed your dog raw chicken and bones if ya wanna but not me, especially when you consider there are [safer] and more sanitary ways/things out there to scrub a dog's teeth. I for one am not fond of the idea of my dog walking around giving everyone in my family licks/kisses after having just eaten raw chicken.😉

Nice way to spend the night riding the porcelain bus if ya ask me.😂

I had a 13 year old Newfoundland that needed put under for a growth removal on her leg. All went well, but I was very worried.
