CoCo Puff here...I'm a little dazed and confused! Today was the day...I had my Dental Surgery. It was painful! I woke up at my usual time this morning and Susie and Duke were given breakfast, but I wasn't. I was not allowed any food before surgery. I was not too pleased with that...those of you who knows me, knows that I live to "eat."
Daddy washed my face, combed my fur and spritz some Juicy Critture Doggy Pawfume on me and then took me to the Vet at 9am. At arrival, all the Vet Techs and nurses loved on me. They said I was the cutest dog, and smelled soooo good!
After the Vet exam, it was confirmed, I had to get the bad molar extracted. Not only that, the Vet also found two other bad teeth, so I had them removed too. It was a far back, top molar that is useless, and a lower M1 molar on the same side of the initial P4 molar. In total, I lost 3 teeth...O-U-C-H!!! While under the anesthesia, the Vet also gave me a deep dental cleaning, so I should be okay in the teeth department for a while!
Mama came and picked me up at 4:30 pm. I was so happy to see her! I walked out of the Vet's back office tail wagging! The nurse gave Mama some Pain Meds, Antibiotics, a bag of Dental Care Rawhides for me. And of course, my extracted teeth too. Mama was SUPER happy to see that I was happy and okay! $325 dollars later, we arrived home. I was super hungry when I got home. All I wanted was food. The Vet had prescribed soft kibbles or wet food. YUM! I was only given 1/4 of my regular portion, just in case the anesthesia caused an upset stomach. As you can see in the pictures, I was very glassy eyed due to all the drugs.I will be on meds for the next week, so I will keep you all posted. Until then, THANK YOU to all my blog buddies for wishing me well!
Hugs and Drool,
Pee ess, DO NOT scroll down if you are squeamish. Below you will find pictures of my teeth! In total I lost 3 teeth. It looks like more because they are broken into pieces.
Oh ya, and another thing....this was not my ideal way of going on a DIET, but it will have to benefit my waistline somehow!
