NeylasMom Posted October 3, 2016 Share Posted October 3, 2016 (edited) Violet's teeth are a mess. She just had horrible teeth and is now overdue for a dental because I just couldn't handle the likely emergency situation that is sedating her while Zuri was fighting osteo. So we are out of town the next 2 wkds, but I had promised myself that I would get her to the dentist right after that. In the meantime, in the last few days she's started rubbing one side of her face a lot. She has a messed up tooth on that side so I'm starting to worry about a possible abscess. I don't see anything obvious, there's no swelling, but it's obviously bothering her some.So my question, is this a situation where my vet might just prescribe a course of ABs until we can get her in to the dentist? I have virtually no time between now and when we leave Thursday, but could maybe get them to squeeze her in tomorrow. Alternatively, I have access to Cephalexin...
