I brought my 7 year old yorkie into Banfield pet hospital in Brick,NJ for dental cleaning. She went to the vet regularly and she was playful and healthy.
they called 4 hours later and said she had DIED and there were always possible complications from anesthesia. I was understandably inconsolable! Days later I started my research and conversations with other reputable vets. They said she was under anesthesia too long for her size (5 lbs).
They said the procedure should have been divided into two visits!
I rec'd no sympathy letter or apology. I feel a vet who does dental cleanings should have been aware of how to treat small dogs under anesthesia!
