Cinderella (2002-2010) My little angel

In about 8 hours, I'll be dropping Cinderella and Cleo off for their dental appointments. I keep having flashbacks of Cinderella's first cleaning. With the Ketamine, I supposed she would be the one having flashbacks, though.

I hate the fact that I couldn't let them eat after 8 p.m., and I have to pick their water up in a few minutes. I understand why, but Cinderella didn't get started on until mid-afternoon the first time, so she was hungry and thirsty for hours until she was put under. That entire episode was a complete nightmare.

I have a different vet now and Cinderella's last cleaning went fine with them, but I still worry about my girls being put under, so good thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: Dental visit

So they have to be knocked out to have their teeth cleaned? I guess it would be kind of difficult otherwise, but do they get bad plaque build up? Aren't their some kind of dental treats to help with that?

As for the food, don't worry, animals are built to go without food much longer then humans. And Cinderella looks nice and filled out behind that beautiful thick coat!

I'm sure everything will be fine and they will come home with sparkling teeth, happy to be home.

Re: Dental visit

Cinderella is my smallest kitty, barely 8 lbs. I know - she looks like the biggest, but that honor goes to Cleo.

Some cats have bad teeth, and that would be my diva. She's had several little teeth pulled already. This is Cleo's first cleaning.

Re: Dental visit

Good luck, and hope your kitties have a good dental visit.

Cloudy, my grey cat, has really bad breath and refuse to eat dry food. However, she's really skittish and the thought of putting her into a carrier is a nightmare let alone bringing her to a dentist. What's your strategy with getting your cat into the carrier?

Re: Dental visit

Thinking good thoughts!! It will be fine, I'm sure. What anesthesia protocol are they using this time?

You feed canned food, right? So she's probably plenty hydrated anyway and won't need the water.

I hope it goes smoothly and safely for both girls! Sending some good thoughts..
I always worry about anesthesia too. We haven't had a teeth cleaning yet, but I suspect she will need one soon and I know I'll just be a basket case. It's definitely one of the more worriesome procedures. *wishing your girls strength and bravery on the scary day*

Re: Dental visit

They're not doing Cinderella's dental. I opted to have bloodwork done for her before the dental, and the results raised some red flags. They're doing a full blood panel, urinalysis and several xrays. I'll know more when they finish and I pick her up. I was outside on my cell, so I can't remember everything the vet said, I just know that I heard the word "cancer" and not much afterwards. I'm sure that was a "worst case scenario" thing, but still.

Hopefully by the time I pick her up, I will have stopped crying. I assured the guys where my car was being serviced that it wasn't their bill that had me in tears.

Re: Dental visit

Oh no!! That's very scary. I really really hope it's nothing that serious and they don't confirm it. Please keep us posted as you find out more. I'm really worried for her.
