    Default My 6 year old male is having some teeth extracted tomorrow and I am a nervous wreck

    Last week when doing a run through of his whole body I noticed that one of his teeth was extremely decayed despite that I brush his teeth 3 time a week. I couldn't believe how decayed it was. At first I thought it might have been a piece of food but I touched it and it was decayed. I brought him in right away to our local SPCA Hospital and so tomorrow he'll be having several teeth removed. I have heard horror stories where doctors dropped the ball and the dog ended up dead. I know the anesthesia can be an issue but I've been assured by the doctor everything should go fine. I have taken away his food already and right now he's fast asleep in bed with me. I am so worried that I won't be able to sleep tonight. Can anyone tell me something to help me ease my anxiety

    thank you

    Lola has to get a tooth extracted on Tuesday, i know your anxiety. she cracked hers on an antler or one of those huge nylabones. don't worry about the anesthesia, just make sure they use isofluorane gas. easy under and easy quick recovery. I'm actually relieved Lola is going in because she will have her palate looked at and nipped if needed as well. she's not been able to breathe twice and i just want her to live a long time! keep in touch here and we will keep you company! hugs

    Hang in there and take a deep breath. This is a scary thing when they get put under that's for sure. Bad things can happen and you have reason for concern anytime they go under anesthesia. To make you feel better, I have adopted a shelter senior (pick her up tomorrow) and she's 7. Last month she was spayed, had several teeth extracted and had eye surgery on both eyes (Entropian) by the shelter vet.

    Will be thinking of your guy. Please keep up updated

    I'm sure you are worried, I would be too. But it's something that don't want him to suffer with. Still, there's always a risk when going under anesthesia

    But, I want to welcome you to the site please let us know how Buddy is doing at the end of the day. God Bless
