Of course, we anesthetize Frenchies. It sounds as if you'll need to find another vet.

I try to do one more but try to bite me.. Is a bit stressful for him because he was already at this vets
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

Don't get hurt.

Amoxicillin dosed at 22 mg/kg twice daily is effective in the oral cavity.

You won't be able to perform a nerve block on that tooth in an anesthetized dog.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what can I do I let him. Like that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cos I'm afraid to make this surgery
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

Doctor, does it make sense to you that vets don't anesthetize an entire breed? Of course not. You've been misinformed. Please find another vet who knows how to address Cash. We have special anesthetic protocols for these dogs. You even have the option of having a specialist veterinary dentist attend to Cash. Please see here:
