Ruby was found to have mild dental disease on her annual physical exam. This is the story of her dental cleaning.

Symptoms:

Ruby has yearly physical examinations. On this years exam mild dental calculi and tartar were noticed. Based on her age, breed and heart murmur status it was decided that a routine dental cleaning would be in her best interest.
After her exam pre-operative blood work was done and she was scheduled for general anesthesia and a scale, polish and oral cavity exam.

Diagnosis:

Dental disease is best diagnosed by an examination of the mouth (gums, teeth, odor, etc) by your veterinarian.

Treatment:

For dental cleanings and surgery at my clinic, Jarrettsville Veterinary Center, I recommend an i.v catheter, i.v. fluids, and intubation so that patients can be placed under general anesthesia so a complete oral cavity exam can be done.
