A Little Woozy

I went to the vet today and had my teeth cleaned.  You know, a girl has to prepare for having her first date.
I'm feeling a bit out of it now that I'm home.

Dr. Abby had to pull 12 of my teeth! 
That is not a typo.....she really did pull 12 of them.
Making babies at a puppy mill for the first several years of my life took a toll on my teeth.  My daddy adds this stuff to my food every day to help keep the plaque off my teeth.  We've been told this stuff works great and really helps.  I guess with my teeth not being in great shape to start with it was just not enough.  I think that means I am gonna start getting my teeth brushed.  I'm not too sure how I feel about that. 

Look!  
They gave me a bandage that matched my toenails! 

On the plus side, I get to eat soft, canned food for a few days!  And I think that is about the yummiest stuff on earth!

I'm so sorry about your teeth. That must hurt. I hope that your humans are pampering you - actually, I'm sure that they are. I love your toenails and bandage match... Feel better soon, my friend.

Oh no, Taffy - you are a brave soul for having that many toofers pulled. Hope the tooth fairy treats you well tonight. At our vet they have a jar of "treats" on the counter. Phantom, who is Mr. Picky, loves them. So Mom asked about them. They are actually a kibble for dental health by Prescription Diet. Mom bought some for him - he would like to eat it all the time, but Mom doesn't think the formula is nutritious enough for him as a main meal - so he gets them as treats. They are supposed to be designed to help eliminate the plaque as the dog chews it.

Hope you feel better tomorrow.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Oh poor Taffy, but I know how you feel, I have had teeth problems too and as a result with infections and such, now have kidneys problems. I wish my vets had given me a bandage like yours, very pretty. Take care Lady Vicki

That is an awful lot of teeth to go missing. I hope that you are recovering and not too owie. Not sure about the toenails, though. Seems like they pulled a fast one on you. Feel better.

Kisses,
Dexter
