Yes!! it is helpful and let me explain why.\r
I felt certain and very uncomfortable that I deeply suspicioned that my dogs teeth were not really cleaned although I paid BIG bucks for the\r
procedure. Both of my dogs had cancer and they knew it. It would make sense and logically follow then that they assumed that they were going to die anyway why bother with cleaning their teeth. \r
I have had nightmares, so to speak, because when I had my dog put to sleep six months later with another vet; I looked in my dog's mouth after the injection was given, and he had a large white abscess on his upper gum with a very large red area. I have felt so ashamed of myself and blamed myself. His breath was bad for a few weeks and I thought that it was from the cancer. Also my other dog was also sick at the same time and I really dropped the ball with that. His lab work was elevated and it could have from dental disease. I hate myself for being so gullible and stupid, a sucker for Dr. Airhart. I think that they both died with dental disease. I am so ashamed of myself. I had been taking my dogs to him for about ten years. I had trusted him and also believed that he liked my dogs, although he told me about 5 times over the years that I should get a Doberman because that kind of dog would be less hairy.\r
I wanted to go back to the office and ask that they look in the records and tell me who cleaned their teeth and confront the person face to face, but I am I suppose too much of a chicken to do so. I can just imagine the comments that I would face. Just better for me to take responsibility with the history. \r
Oddly enough, the last year I noticed the Dr. Airhart told me something a time or two and then contradicted himself later. I became suspicious with that behavior and then at that time called Austin Veterinary Board. The lady that I talked to e-mailed me a list of the complaints and the fines that he has paid over the years. I felt numb. \r
Thank you for listening.
