So hello folks from Johnson Vet Services. Thanks for your attention. I put together a video that talks about how dental health / dental cleaning benefits a dog’s life. Especially the older dog. And especially the older dog with a rotting mouth that’s “too old to anesthetize” – – meaning: The ones that actually need it the most.
At Johnson Vet Services it’s simple. First, see me and I will advise you HONESTLY whether your dog even needs a dental. I think one of the reasons I’ve never had a dental fatality is because:
- I don’t do dental unnecessarily so I reduce my exposure.
- I know which cases to bypass and truly NOT risk.
- We’re good at anesthetizing old dogs and we use an anesthetic protocol (balanced neuroleptanalgesia) that costs 700% more than gas anesthesia but is THE reason I’ve never had to call someone and say “We had an anesthetic “reaction” (read, overdose/casualty)”
Then you would schedule the dental cleaning. You’d bring your dog in on the morning of the procedure and drop off. We may or may not check organ function. Depends on the age. I’ll perform another examination “just to be sure” and then we anesthetize the pet. They’re only down a half hour tops and we inspect, then clean all the teeth. We’ll remove (sometimes sectioning) any teeth which are severely diseased, loose, or “going to be next year’s problem”
Pets go home on pain medications, anti-inflammatory meds and sometimes, antibiotics.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
