I have a 14-year-old Maltese who has really bad teeth. Most of them have fallen apart and she has very few left.
I love my puppy; she is like family. My question is what do I do to help the situation with her teeth. I spoke to a vet and they want to put her under anaesthesia and do some surgeries, but I don't think it's a good idea at the age she is.
As far as food goes, her food is hard--should I only feed her soft food? Should I feed her human food such as chicken? Any advice on where to start with this would be appreciated.
For sure I do not want to put her under anaesthesia for surgery as there is a chance of it not being successful.
