Mario was ready to come late yesterday afternoon. He had two upper molars pulled. The vet said they were the ones that had 3 roots, that had broken off, probably from hard chewing....ouch. He was a little wobbly and very sleepy for most of the evening. He did have his appetite last night. The 1st thing he did when he got home was pee....he must have saved it up all day. The back yard was flooded, LOL. He will be on antibiotics for 2 weeks since one of the molars was VERY infected.
|Right below the top finger, is where the badly infected tooth used to live.|
He slept pretty good last night, but had a runny nose, was sneezing some and licking his chops often. Thank goodness for pain killers.
Oscar did fine, he had 3 little teeth pulled. He was even more wobbly than Mario. If asked, he wouldn't have been able to walk a straight line. He was so happy to see his foster mom when we dropped him off last night!
We're glad to get that over with. Hu-mom is going to have double knee surgery this summer, so she's trying to get everyone taken care of before she is out of commission.
Mack is next in line to get his teeth cleaned. Our vet is pretty expensive, like most private vets. There is a surgery center about 2 hours away that does doggie dental for $155:
DENTAL SCALING / POLISHING (includes all extractions and medications necessary) - $155
They come highly recommended so hu-mom is going to make the trek soon for Mack! Luckily, my teeth are in good shape. Maybe next year will be my turn!
Have a wonderful week!
Love, Minnie : )
