dog @ dentist

I've put this off for years, but recently I had my dog's teeth cleaned. It's an expensive procedure, which is carried out under general anesthisia. Tartar deposits are removed with an ultrasonic scaler and the surface of the teeth is polished. If necessary, teeth are extracted. Fortunately, this was not necessary in Brandy's case. Her teeth are now free of tartar and her breath has improved a lot.

Now I have to learn to brush her teeth regularly....what fun that will be.
