We recently also had a family dog fight of kidney failure successfully, but it was touch and go for awhile. Truth be told, I cringe when paying canine dental bills, but after seeing what my folks went through with the canine acute kidney failure, I'll quite happily pay for dental it it'll help keep other things running tip-top!

My dog is also 9. I had his teeth cleaned twice already and will do again. Poor hygiene will lead to rotting teeth, pain for the dog, risk of infection etc. Yes, the bills suck but what I get back from the dog in love and affection is worth the money.

The blood screening is a must.
