Thanks to everyone who responded to my post for Dexter.
I don't know how you survived having both of your cats teeth cleaned ... at the same time.
Sadie was a wreck when she came home from the Vet. Her back legs would not track her front legs & she was so stoned from the anesthesia she couldn't sleep until about midnight. I had to keep an eye on her until the meds wore off. She did fine but I was worn out.
I love what you said --- "What was I thinking??"...
about having both of your cats teeth cleaned at the same time. I know that there is a funny story behind that comment.
Your sweet kitty is fortunate that she has outgrown her scent gland problem. Dexter will be 5 in July and he has not. It appears as though this might be a life long problem for him.
Other than that...he is a healthy boy.
Thanks for sharing your story. I'll post again Monday asking again for thoughts & prayers for Dex on Turs. I have no doubt that they help.
The TCS is such a great place to find others, who feel the same way about their furbabies?

Two of my babies had dentals back in September (at the same time, no less! what was I thinking ?!) so I understand the anxiety that comes with this.
As long as Dex is in good health and has his pre-dental screening (blood work, EKG) he'll be fine. Anesthesia is much improved and far safer today than ever before. Since you've been through this with Sadie recently, you're better prepared - but you're still going to worry! All good cat moms do.
Sending handsome Dex good thoughts and best wishes for an easy dental and quick recovery. He'll have some pearly whites to show off soon!
