Oh, poor Benny!! I would have been infuriated and said some regretful things to that vet...

Thank you so much for posting this... we still have to take Ozzie in for his dental and I wouldn't have thought to ask about heating pads... Thank you again!!

Tammy, I am so sorry that Benny had to endure this. I think it is a wonderful thing that you are bringing about an awareness regarding how dangerous electric heating pads are. I will continue to keep Benny in my prayers. {{{{{Hugs}}}}}

Miss Daisy has a dental this upcoming Thursday and I am going to have another in depth conversation with him about this. I do not want Daisy to have one in her pen and will be providing him with her blanket, like I have many times before when she had to be there for a period of time.

I'm a reader and I've spent a month or so reading older posts and I really want to thank you for sharing this information. I ask my vet and he does use the heating pads. He assured me that they are very low heat however I still requested them not be used. I surely hope Benny has fully recovered.

Thanks Again.

Trena - my vet uses heating pads that aren't electric and that warm water flows through. She told me they stopped using regular heating pads years ago because of safety issues. Maybe your vet is unaware of what can happen and if you show him the post they may consider getting the newer safer ones. When dogs are under anesthesia, as people, warming blankets are often needed.

Before I sign for any procedure now I want to see that they've specified the type of heating pads they use....ie the water circulating ones, not the other kind.

if it's not on the typed ' release' (or whatever they call the paperwork) they can add it and initial.

This is what my vet uses also.
