Hi my pooch seems to be struggling eating dried food as if he has sensitive, maybe toothache..... has anyone taken theirs to vet to get teeth cleaned? How is it done? He regularly has raw bones and eats quality food so it's not junk that is possibly causing tartar?? TIA

Welcome..hope to see pictures of your "pooch"..
First of all..how old is your dog?
My dog is 9 years old. Last year my dog had her second vet cleaning. The cleanjngs are done under anesthesia. At the first cleaning it was discovered that the lower rear molars on each side had a crack across the tooth. It was suggested to go to a vet dentist to have them pulled.. i didnt do it since she didn't demonstrate any pain and I didn't want to put her under anesthesia a second time so soon after. I believe the cracks were due to hard chews which I took away. Last year she had a second cleaning under anesthesia and had a side tooth removed. She was fine afterwards. The anesthesia allows the vet to do a thorough inspection and cleaning.
By the way my dog doesnt eat kibble.. she eats a fresh food that comes in a roll in the refrigerated section of the pet store.

Our vet cleans and will pull teeth (after dental x-rays) under anesthetic. Maybe it's a Canada/US difference? We don't have to take them to a dental specialist.

Raw bones can cause fractures.

TO MINE, THE ESMECIALIST RECOMMENDED A SPECIALIZED DIET AND A FEW COOKIES TO ELIMINATE THE TARE
