Cats getting their teeth cleaned.
Frankie and Elmo went to the veteraniarian yesterday for a dental cleaning. At their last checkup their teeth had a lot of crud built up. Fortunately, neither of them had to have teeth pulled. Cats have to be sedated for a teeth cleaning. It's just like a surgical operation. They were very groggy when they came home. They walked like drunks for the first few hourse. As cats get holder, and both are over 10 years, anesthesia becomes more risky. They have a harder time recovering. Fortunately, they are back to their old habits of sleeping in the sun and enjoying life! We may cut down on the wet food to help keep their teeth clean in the future!
