I hope I didn't overlook another thread on this topic.
I took my 12 1/2 yr old poodle, Monet, in for a dental cleaning today, and he had to have several teeth pulled. I am getting ready to go get him now, so I will be able to post more info on it tomorrow. Just wondered who else has dealt with this and may have helpful advice/hints.
I feel terrible. I probably should have had them cleaned a year or so ago,...but the vet said they looked really good at the time, but have went downhill the last few months, obviously. She said once they start to go, one bad tooth starts to share the decay with the next one. And that several teeth can go bad very quickly. I have had two other poodles, but never had the teeth issue with them. But, both of them had other health issues and had to be put asleep before they were 10 years old.
Thanks for listening!
