Elton needs a dental cleaning but I really wasn't worried about anesthesia until I talked to a friend. Her cavalier is younger 3 maybe? But her vet will not do a cleaning without having an Echo from the cardiologist here.

I know Tennessee has a murmur but at a young age maybe a grade 1. Elton doesn't have a murmur but he didn't need to be checked by a cardiologist when he had an MRI. Is this normal practice or just because Tennessee has a murmur? I am looking at getting a dental cleaning scheduled and wanted thoughts?
