💜 Progress report/oral hygiene advice. Manny is recovering nicely from the bite wounds he sustained during this past Saturday's dog attack. (Previous post) He was off pain meds and his behavior and disposition had returned to normal. I took him to a dentist, this morning, hoping to save his upper, left fang, which was partially dislodged, during the attack. It turns out, he had periodontal disease and the tooth was beyond saving, even before the attack. It had to be extracted, along with 12 other teeth. I had his teeth professionally cleaned 12/2014 and they were in great shape, so this came as a shock to me. It seemed like a lot of decay in 3.5 years, but insufficient oral care and his age were factors. I was brushing his teeth once per week; using a dental treatment additive in his water and giving dental chews to him, daily, but this was not nearly enough. Poor dental hygiene can lead to a number of problems, including rotting teeth, gingivitis, bad breath and difficulty chewing, due to damaged teeth. It can also develop into more serious problems like gum infections and heart problems. When bacteria infect gums, they also get into the bloodstream and can affect many organs, especially the heart. 💟 Please brush your pet's teeth, daily and have your pet's teeth professionally cleaned, yearly.
1. 7/17: Hanging with me & recovering, while I worked from home.
2. 7/18: Resting & recovering on the deck.
3. 7/19: A quiet, restful evening at home.
4. 07/20: Resting & recovering, this evening, after I brought him home from his procedure. 💜 He's had a rough week, but he's tough and resilient and I'm sure he will soon return to his old self.
💙🙏 Thanks to so many of you for your concern, kind words, love and support.
❤🙏 Special thanks for above & beyond support:
