Has anyone's pom passed away after going in for teeth cleaning/extraction? She was only 7 and otherwise healthy. The vet is a reputable surgeon where she got her acl surgery done only a year before. Vet states that the procedure was successful and my pom was released to me after she woke up from the anesthesia. But on the car ride home I had to make a U-turns and go back to the vet twice as she was having trouble breathing and she would start crying/wailing every 5 minutes or so... long story short I had to leave her in the hospital for the next 2 days and she had to be force fed and eventually her heart stopped on the second morning. I have heard in the past that small dogs don't do well with anesthesia? but I never thought she would die from her first teeth cleaning?
