I get my teeth cleaned without anesthesia and MANY animals are cooperative WITHOUT FORCING DRUGS ON THEM at RIDICULOUS COSTS! You IDIOTS are making a teeth cleaning SO EXPENSIVE, less and less pets will get it done at ALL. So you are just as greedy as the rest of our government making "laws" that force us to do UNNATURAL things to ourselves and our innocent pets. You shameful thieves, we KNOW you don't care about our pets-just about filling your own wallets!
