Re: Chloe - Serious Dental Issues
- As a follow up to my earlier post, at our vet clinic it was similar to what Janie wrote.
The vet tech did the cleaning, with the vet monitoring the anesthesia and doing extractions. Our vet told me that this particular tech was very good (and fast)...

Now our dentist does not clean our teeth but the dental asst does. We had 3 kitties with HCM. I dont think they were in danger and they were in pretty good condition but we had there teeth fixed as that poison can go to the heart and liver. I think that link someone put on here was good. The dif is I have been with my vet through many crisis and procedures and I trust him and his nurse completly as we have been through so much. I think you have to really know what they are using how it is done and if the kitty is in that much pain you might have to do it. Good luck Janie
