Need advice re dental cleaning
I scheduled a cleaning for Daisy and asked about the anesthesia and the reply was they use gas..I questioned the receptionist about the type they use, is it proven safe for yorkies, etc. and she went back and asked one of the vets and she came back with they have 2 doses one for large dogs and one for small. I am a little nervous about this. Should I be asking more questions. Thanks.

Iso (and I would guess Sevo) are are not really dosed like typical drugs. I've watched Iso being given many times and not once have I heard there is one dose for small dogs and one for large. It is a certain % concentration (probably around 1.5 - 2.5) given with oxygen. They can turn the machine up as needed if the pup starts to shows signs of awareness. So to answer your question, I'd be uncomfortable with that answer.

Instead of having the receptionist interpret what you have asked and how the vet answered, I suggest you speak directly with the vet.
She probably only asked the vet if it was safe for small dogs and got a simplistic answer.
Ask for the vet to telephone you and then you can ask exactly what is done.
