Muriel Posted October 19, 2016 Share Posted October 19, 2016 Hello fellow greyhound people, It's been awhile since I've been on this site but I think I could really use some advice. My grey, Ginger, is 12 1/2 years and has been relatively healthy with the exception of a sensitive stomach. She only has about 8-10 teeth left in her mouth and they need to be removed, this includes her canines. I went to see a \veterinarian who specializes in dental work and does this regularly. She has a lot of pain in the bottom teeth and they bleed easily as there is not much tissue left. It will cost between $2,000-$2,800 to do the work. I feel pretty confident in his abilities but am of course concerned of her recovery. He expressed concerns about the lack of tissue for the suturing after the extraction for the bottom canines, and I need to follow up on that issue. He did indicate a very minor risk of a potential oro-nasal fistula from the removal of the upper canines. He was very upfront about the procedure but also indicated that she really needed to have it done. Has anyone else been through this and can they share their experience please? Also, is anyone familiar with any qualified vets at the University of Florida Vet School who do this type of work or any other vets in the southwest Florida area? Thank you in advance Muriel Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
