I'm sooo incredibly happy cuz Fancy made it thru her dental work which included 5 extractions.

I was extremely worried not only cuz of Fancy's age but also because I was using a completely new vet. (Oh and like a fool, never asked for any of those famous Crush Vibes). I love my old vets but they are 3X more expensive than anyplace else and as we all know dental are expensive enough.

Although she's had the ultrasonic (no anesthetic) cleaning done a few times, she hasn't needed to see the vet for this until the last time when I was told she had some "mobile" teeth. So I set out to find a vet who knew the "greyhound protocol", would not use Ace, would take into account her age and that hairless Cresties have shallow root pickets. I'm sure I sounded neurotic when getting quotes from a few vets.

Although I can't say as I liked the bedside mannerism of the vet I picked, I was assured by the vet assistants, who knew exactly what I meant by "greyhound protocol" and said that "Aceapromin (not spelled right, I know, sorry)is old school and they never use it. I talked to my vet tech friend who told me that this vet's insistence that Fancy have the prebloodwork done or he wouldn't do it, was a good thing.

So on dental day, with tears in my eyes, I handed the vet tech the light of my life. From 9am to 5pm I sat on pins & needles until I finally got the call that I could bring her home. YEAH!

BUT I have NEVER had a dog sooo out of it still as Fancy was still. She was staring at "shadows on the wall", her eyes were whirling when she'd frantically lift her head to find & then focus on me. Really scared me.

Alls good now and no more bad breath. Let the puppy dog kisses begin. ;-)

So glad Fancy made it safely through her dental surgery. I'm sure she'll feel  much better without those bad teeth, and nice breath is a bonus..Sending her belated Crush vibes for a quick recovery from a  sore mouth.

I am so glad dear. Thanks for sharing your joy with us. Well, my cousin needs dental filling and has asked me for the recommendation for a good Torrance dentist but I haven’t been to any dentist since I moved here. Is there anyone who can suggest an experienced dentist for her?
