The Case 

Benny, a 7-year-old spayed beagle, is presented for dental prophylaxis with possible extractions. 

Benny is up to date on vaccinations and monthly heartworm, flea, and tick preventive and is fed a maintenance dry food twice a day. She spends most time indoors and only goes outside for short leash walks, which, according to the owner, tire her out quickly. Her BCS is 6/9.
