teeth cleaning

by Carol R. Lalla

I was shocked when a friend said she left her 8 yr.old toy schnauzer at the vet for a teeth cleaning. When she picked her up, she discovered the vet wasn't even there - a technician did the teeth cleaning and said '10' teeth came out with the cleaning!! My friend was so upset and I don't blame her. Is this usual? I've had dogs my whole life (and they've had cleanings) but never lost any teeth - especially 10!?

NOT normal

No, this is not normal -I would be looking at taking action.
Normally, Dentastix or similar every day or two help to keep down plaque for dogs.
