Dr
Geller,

What if the dog has vestibular disorder? My schnauzer has this problem but all her blood work is fairly normal. Is there a risk of making her condition worse? She has adapted to her condition and is stable but I do not want to make it worse by anestitzing her to clean her
teeth.

Thanks

Thank you so much for this information. I have an 11yr.old Cocker Spaniel and she means the world to me. I lost a male Cocker Spaniel at age 15 and I feel she will live that or longer with the proper care. I have been hesitant to have her sedated for teeth cleaning due to the risks involved. I feel much more confident that I am making the right decision on going ahead with her dental cleaning,that I have been putting off,after reading your article. Thank you so much for helping me make a difficult but now much more informed decision on this matter.
