Update on Cami's appointment: I've rescheduled for tomorrow morning. I heard some horror stories about the vet she was first scheduled with so I changed vets and days. Plus that will get her in sooner and I can de-stress earlier in the week! lol

I'll try to remember to update you guys as to how it goes for her.

You'll do great. Murphy had a dental cleaning and they extracted 2 teeth, and everything went fine. When he got home he was a little "loopy"....for some reason, he sat and stared at the front door, which he had never done before. The next day he was back to himself but maybe a tiny bit subdued, and the next day he was completely normal.

You might want to inquire about a sealant being put on. I don't know that it's even used in cats but the last dog I took in for a dental got the OraVet Sealant. You apply it yourself once a week after the vet does it professionally and it supposedly helps a lot. Preventative care is often over looked for dental.

I'm sure she'll do fine. I had to bring in Harli in Oct a couple weeks after her yearly exam, when they did bloodwork. They used an intravenous anesthetic. Other than growling at me when I picked her up, she was fine in a very short time after being home. They told me to only feed her about 1/2 of her normal meal that evening. Then more in a few hours was OK if she wanted it.

If you have other cats, they might require a period of adjustment until Cami wears off the icky vet smell. (probably from the antiseptic used at the injection site). I had to keep Harli and Lily separated for about a day.
