Farewell, Bottom Fang, It Was a Good Run


 
But it's over now. Will you miss me? I hope not to miss YOU too much.
 
- Sincerely,
Toby
 
 
Mom's note:
 
The other night I gave Toby this toy that had been marinating in nip for some time. He had a big reaction but I thought he just had a major nip high. Turns out, his tooth got stuck in the curly fabric and broke off. A fact that I discovered about 4pm this afternoon, and immediately rushed him off to the vet.
 
They gave him a shot for inflammation, and I have to give him antibiotics. On Friday we return for a full dental, which he needs anyway - again! we just had one last November - and the root extraction, because of course it didn't have the decency to just come out too.
 
When I came home I hunted for the tooth. As far as I can tell, it WAS healthy, just embedded in the fabric. I guess it got stuck, he pulled away hard and that was that.
 
This is my baby, he's hurting, and it's hurting me too. Please pray that all will go well for him this week.

  5. Oh sweet Toby. I'm sorry for what happened to him. Accidents happen but I feel your pain...it's so hard to see our beloved fur babies go through difficult time. But I'm glad that dental is done and over. I hope he recovers quickly. Hugs and purrs to you both xoxo

  6. Oh no, poor the both of you! I'm thinking there had to be something going on with the tooth that you can't see--maybe a hairline fracture? Or just some other stress on it? At any rate, what an awful experience. Purrs to Toby and you that all will be well soon!

    1. We think you are right. Mom dropped the tooth off at the vet today so she could see if she could tell, maybe, why it happened.

  11. Toby, I've got my paws crossed, hoping your dental goes well, and that they can fix up your teefs so your momma doesn't have to worry 'bout you. Friday will be here before you know it!
