Ew-wee! I am so excited about Mr. Buck's visit to the Fluffy Puppy!! The groomer has a dog hygienist come in every other month to clean dog's teeth. He doesn't use sedation! He is absolutely AMAZING!! He is like the Dog Whisperer. Jason, the "dog whisperer hygienist" take the patient to the back room. The room is about 5' x 5' square with low walls and glass on one side where the appointment desk is so I could watch the whole thing. He has towels on the floor and he sits on the floor with the dog between his legs but one leg is crooked over the dog to hold him in position. Jason pulls the dogs head to his chest and talks to him and strokes him. He puts his left hand between the dogs teeth to hold his mouth open and uses his right hand to clean using the same type of instruments I use when I clean people's teeth. He has an ultrasonic scaler, too. Mr. Buck was nervous and pulled away sometimes but Jason stroked his his and pulled him back in to his chest and kept working. Mr. Buck never cried or anything. I was so amazed, I can't tell you! I got scolded for not brushing my dogs' teeth. Shame on me! I KNOW better! But, life gets in the way and Mr. Buck does get his ears cleaned out by me three times a week plus all the usual dog chores. I will start brushing his teeth. Anyway, Mr Buck now has clean teeth and fresh breath. It was "only" $120.00. Compared to over $500.00 at the vet, it was a bargain!
