I can't hold Frasier down or headlock him either. My last dog was big. I could lay on her if I had to in order to hold her down for ear or teeth cleaning. But this little guy wiggles so much he hurts himself if I don't let go and obviously I can't lay on him. I'm gonna have a tightly wrapped Frasier burrito this afternoon. lol
Can I have one, too? (when I get my furbaby?) pleeeaseee?ilovesadie said:Cocoa's Mom, if you are interested in CET products to try out on your Chi, I'll send you a CET dental pack from our hospital. Just PM me with your address, and I'll send it to you.
My family always had dogs and we never once brushed their teeth. I swear I had no idea tooth decay could cause life threatening problems. Lily's first vet said we should "keep an eye on her teeth" when, in fact, she should have told me to schedule a cleaning immediately. That was never mentioned for almost an entire year. I will always wonder if more proactive treatment might have prevented the heart murmur. I don't agonize over it because what's done is done, but we no longer go to that vet.ilovesadie said:Rachel, spot on with the importance of clean teeth. The gums are the most overlooked entry for infectious bacteria that can cause sepsis and result in liver and heart disease (hence the heart murmur that developed).
