within the Dog Grooming forums, part of the Keeping and Caring for Dogs category; Hey everyone, I was wondering if it's considered cruel to sedate my dog for a grooming appointment. Oh no, I wasn't even suggesting that I'd sedate him myself, that's very dangerous.The groomer is in the same office as my vet so if I were to get him sedated, he'd be examined by his vet and then sedated.There is always a risk when a patient has any form of anaesthesia.It is most often incident free when administered by an experienced professional.
Luckily for those of us who really cannot face a visit to the dentist there is sedation dentistry.
Mostly oral and maxillofacial surgeons as well as dentist anaesthetists .
Some dentists will use the services of a dentist anaesthetist, who is trained to administerevery level of sedation and anaesthesia to adults and children.
Check that the following things are done: Prior to the procedure, your dentist should ask for and discuss your medical history and check that you are an appropriate candidate for sedation and should ask about any medications you're taking.
