Toby is out of surgery and recovering. He wouldn't want you to know this, but they put the Cone of Shame on him to keep him from scratching at his cheeks. At least he doesn't have to wear it home.
The Xrays showed more extensive damage than hoped for. He lost several teeth, including two of the three canines he went in with. He only has one upper tooth left in front. Poor old guy will look like a pro hockey player now. Another tooth was fractured. He will be on pain meds and antibiotics for 7 days. I'm told this isn't the staggering around the house kind of pain meds.
So far that's all I know. I REALLY hope nothing showed up on his bloodwork, this is all quite enough to deal with. I pick him tonight around 5:30 pm. I suspect he will be QUITE ready to come home.
Thank you all for your purrayers and good thoughts for him.
I've been through it time and time again with Bear. Last time was the absolute worst though - he had a molar removed - and even though there was a huge pocket under the tooth, the vet had to surgically remove two of the three roots. He scared me at home. He wouldn't settle down ... I tried feeding him all kinds of wet food and he refused ... and it seemed like he wasn't breathing. I was a mess. If you need a friend - or a person to talk, please e-mail me.ReplyDelete
