We said we weren't going to put her through that much stress just to get her teeth cleaned. We were worried something like this might happen.
Very sorry for your loss, Laz. There are tons of good vets out there just like there are lots of good doctors out there, but I'm sure there are also crap vets that don't do their homework in situations like this.
Are dog is 13, never had her teeth cleaned.. Breath stinks, but that is understandable.. Most 80yo breath stinks..
I am afraid of the same thing.. Sorry for your pet loss..
