Has anyone tried pulse therapy, using antibiotics to help with keeping teeth healthy, in a dog who cannot be sedated for a regular dental/teeth cleaning?

I am curious to know how this has gone for someone else... specifically if your dog is older or a senior.

Thanks!

I have a 8 yr old yorkie and the vet prescribed him on a course of antibiotics for 5 days which he called "pulse therapy" about a year ago. It worked calm the inflammation he had on the gums but he still needed to go under anesthesia to get his teeth cleaned a few months later. I brush his teeth everyday but he might be getting another abcess so I was going to go back to the vet and see if he needs to go under pulse again... How bad are you dog teeth? It might work see what your vet says and give it a try. It might work for your dog.

darlin', you're a little late on this... i posted that question over two years ago. the good news is, however, i can now report that my shih tzu was treated successfully on pulse therapy for over a year and a half. (pulse therapy = seven days of antibiotic monthly specifically to prevent infection of the teeth, gums, and mouth.) it did work for barnaby, and we may implement it again for him, if needed.

welcome to the board... and best of luck with your dog.

Default Antibiotic for dog

I was searching about this too and stumbled on this. I was looking for anecdotal reports on this because I only heard about it used for 6 months or so so wasn't sure if it could be used long term with success. Glad to hear it worked to manage for that long. The only info I found was this: pulse therapy for dog.
