POOR LITTLE LUCKY AND HER BAD TEETH
They had to remove four teeth and scrape plaque off the rest. Since Lucky is so growly, I can't brush her teeth. Now I have some food that is supposed to help keep her teeth clean. I have also been told about some stuff you can put in her water.
I had to make a big decision about one tooth. The tooth still has a live nerve so they could leave it and see what happened to it or they could pull it today. They weren't thrilled about pulling a tooth with a live nerve. They said it would be very painful. The flip side is that it could last years or it could go bad sooner. I decided to leave the tooth and see what happened. No unnecessary pain. I am glad I made that decision now that I see how much pain she is in.
Lucky is so unhappy. She is having a hard time getting over the anesthesia. She was shaking like crazy and I actually called the vet to make sure she is okay. I tried to give her the pain meds but she doesn't like it. I think it stings her mouth or something. She was actually foaming at the mouth when I gave it to her. Then I put it in her food and she turned up her nose to the food. Turned her nose up to chicken and rice?! What is this world coming to?
I hope she feels better tomorrow. I will call the vet in the morning and find out what to do about the pain meds.
