Anesthesia

Just wanted to thank Kimberly for her info on anesthesia. I just had Molly in for dental cleaning. After five years without brushing ,she definitely had some tartar. She came through the procedure fine . I was concerned with her being put under. Kimberly said that isoflurane was one of the better anesthesia's to use. Luckily the vet uses this one. Today I got a letter from Sabine my nutritionist , and she agreed. Apparently it goes through the body faster and is easily reversed if there are any problems. She has highly recommended Petzlife oral gel for care down the road. She has seen wonderful results with many of her clients. It is totally risk free. Molly had diarrhea for a couple of days but is fine now. She got me up five times Saturday night. And apparently that is QUITE common with any anesthesia. So no more fooling around. Brushing is going to be a daily routine. I don't need any more $612 bills. And that was a regular cleanining. Apparently it is not uncommon to get up to $2000 bills for dental work. Oral health should not be ignored. Both in animals and humans the studies show how poor oral health will definitely lead to all sorts of problems in the body. Learned my lesson the hard way.

I'm glad to know Molly did fine through the cleaning and anesthesia.

thanks Sandi, yeah we worry a lot about our neezers don't we. When you sign the release form before you leave your dog with them, it always scares you to think that maybe it will be the last time you see them alive.

Great info from Kimberly. Glad you're sharing that, Dave! I forgot what the name of it was. Very glad to hear that Molly is recovering well. I might have to get Ricky's done, but with his liver issues, I don't want to put him through it and yet.... darned if I do, darned if I don't as plaque can also affect liver function.

I use Petzlife Oral gel, but not religiously. Shame on me!

Im very fortunate that I have always had a vet that let me assist in any of the surgeries my dogs, cats or horses. I would be a basket case if I had to wait for a phone call.

Marj, I know what you're talking about. It's easy to ignore. I knew a year ago that it needed to be done and I kept procrastinating. Shame on us . LOL

Probably not as cool as you think, years of using the same vet, he knows I'm not going to pass out, know the instruments he needs. Hes been to my home many times and us to his. My animals wake up with me there, go home right after surgery, no over nights. He knows he has to stay working until Im out of animals. That is the Rule!

Sandi, that is quite the relationship. You're very lucky to have that sort of person, especially a vet.

I was fortunate enough to know about petz life (because of the forum) from day one. I use it once or twice a week and it has worked fine. I don't think you have to use it everyday Dave. I am glad Molly came through with flying colors...are you just loving those kisses now?

Sandi, I could not assist, I would be too scared and nervous. good for you and your vet though that you have this deal worked out. But if I know you, he will be working a very long time as I doubt you will ever be out of animals.
