They "should know" that he is a very old beag...That will not survive a teeth cleaning or any other "elective procedure"! Having the tumor removed from his tail should have "updated their files" in 2006 to reflect that! (Lucky for him, He & the rest of our beags)... have been cleaning their teeth with our usual treats & deer bones! Soo he will not need a teeth-cleaning for the rest of his life! Goobers teeth are still clean thanks to the "td" kibble! :thumbup: (He does however) need me to snuggle-up to as he becomes less tolerant to our cold temps!!!
