I'm extremely concerned and anxious about putting my

I'm extremely concerned and anxious about putting my precious 5 1/2 year old male Cockapoo under in order to get his teeth done. One reason why I'm concerned is how fussy he is with his food. I know vomiting whilst under is extremely dangerous for dogs, and since he is a fussy eater, sometimes he deliberately doesn't eat food for a couple of days and thus sometimes vomits due to the lack of food. Are there any safer alternatives?

Questions you might consider asking
  • The dog I rescued from a humane society at age 7 has started to snap at a few kids. He has been so good until the last week or so. What can I do to stop this behavior before he bites someone?
  • We noticed a bump on the top of our dog's nose on Sunday. It had not grown however we noticed it was bleeding yesterday (it seems like he itched it raw). If it has not grown and we have not noticed a change in his behavior is there any reason to take him to the vet at this point?
  • How do I modify my dogs behavior of possessive aggression?
