A Cat Who Had All Teeth Extracted

Cat Chat (01-08-2018) #1074: Dr. Kelly Saverino from the University of Pennsylvania vet school discusses the unusual case of a kitty, Jax, who had to have all his teeth extracted — but is doing just fine! Tracie asks what advice Dr. Saverino has for pet owners who are fearful about getting their pet’s teeth cleaned under anesthesia. Her recommendations include getting chest x-ray of your pet beforehand, along with blood work. And to make sure that someone qualified is in charge of monitoring the anesthesia throughout the procedure.
