Re: Question regarding dog and tartar on teeth....
My dog is 9.5 years old with an expected lifespan of 10-12 although you never know they can go longer based on diet, exercise, etc.
I love my dog but if I was told by a vet I'm looking at a bill for almost $1500 so the dog can have nice breath I'd say thanks but no thanks I'll be happy to switch to soft foods if she can no longer chew one day.
It's a DOG.
Blows my mind what some people are willing to spend just to keep an animal with a short life span alive that much longer and have procedures done that lots of people cannot even afford to do for themselves.
