The Veterinary Dental Procedure –

Ishy  had the doggy dental , with extraction of the longest tooth , a canine .  After a gum flap was made,  Ishy’s tooth was gently loosened by burring away at the surrounding bone. At least Ishy was sound sleep and would not have heard the veterinary  dental   Drill.

The Veterinary Anaesthesia is monitored by a experienced veterinary nurses.

The vet dental involved cleaning and scaling  teeth above and  below the gun line.
