Ruby's Dental Today


Recommended Posts

I took Ruby for her dental today....just called them to see when she can come home.

 

They JUST got done with her, and she had six extractions. My poor little girl...but I know bad teeth are better OUT than IN. She has periodontal disease, and we expected her to have an extraction or two--but SIX!!

 

Now I have to wait a while longer, call again, and see when she'll be ready.

 

Any advice for caring for her after all these extractions?

The vet will probably send you home with antibiotics and maybe pain meds. I'd feed soft food for a few days, and she should be just fine!

 

She will probably be groggy today. I brush my dog's teeth daily, and use Chlorhexadine rinse on them daily as well. Once her mouth is healed, daily maintenance or as much as you can, couldn't hurt.

 

Glad she did well! Hugs!

She's already on clindamycin...she takes it one week each month, due to her bad mouth. We also brush *almost* daily, and we use OxyFresh and a Chlorhexadine rinse on her (DentaHex, I believe). Sounds like the same regime you're on!

 

I guess I will look at it as fewer teeth to brush! :colgate
