Having a hair in your tooth brush is bad, but having a tooth in your hair brush is much worse.
Can you give me your professional advice? My dog needs a dental. Our groomer can do a less detailed version than the vet, but she does it without sedation. I'm nervous about my dog going under as even though she's healthy, she is 11. Her teeth are pretty gnarly. I understand you can't say for sure she will survive sedation, but she sees are vet regularly and is very healthy. So, in your opinion, should I go with a poorer quality cleaning or risk the sedation?
