Django is going in Thursday to have his teeth cleaned. I swore the last time he had his teeth cleaned last year it would be the last time however he is just prone to bad teeth. I brush every day, I'm sure the meds he's on don't help, his mom had bad teeth. He's had his teeth cleaned almost every year since he was 3.
Does anyone have a recommendation to help keep his teeth clean? I have tried the additives you put in water but on day 3 he stopped drinking water from his bowl in the kitchen where the additives were placed and would only drink out of his bowl in the bathroom upstairs!
I have a great vet, he's the first patient in and the first patient out. We arrive 20 minutes before he's ready to go in. Blood work is taken the day before, load him up with prednisone as well. Hoping no teeth need to be extracted. To date, he's only had one tooth removed.
He's never been one to chew on bones, antlers, etc. etc. I have tried everything under the sun. Any suggestions would be great. I really want this to be the last time he goes under.
