Daisy is doing great..

They had to knock her out for the procedure so She was pretty out of it last night and is still a bit groggy today. I have work to do so She is just sitting quiet today with me in the Camper. I was a bit off on the estimate.. All said and done $2,800 for the dental work. Hopefully the Splint works, or I will have to have the Splint and teeth removed. Fingers crossed.. Doggie Dentist feels very confident all should be fine. Soft food for her the next couple weeks..

Traveling and in Wisconsin for a couple weeks camping. One of the Dogs gets really excited  when we go camping... She tried to jump up into her box in the 1 ton pickup, it is much higher than the Yukon she usually rides in. She missed slipped and smacked her jaw on the metal truck step. I thought I was going to look in her mouth and see a bunch of broken teeth but only two lower front teeth were loose. Went to emergency Sunday and had an appointment for this morning for a canine dentist to take a look... He said easy fix, after x-rays would be to pull them.. Told him I would like to save them if we could. They did the x-rays and exam and he gave me the choice of pulling them 100% or temporarily splinting them with better than 80% they reseat ..

My choice was to splint them.. Going to pick her up in a bit, they had to knock her out for the x-rays, exam, and splint.. 

I think I am into it for about $2300 or better so far, ouch and I thought human dentistry was expensive ... 


At least it sounds like She should be fine.. Camping is getting expensive ..

Sorry to hear that BigBlue. Give him lots of love and see what the vet says. Hopefully there will be a turn around.

Check out this website, near the bottom are links of organizations that might be able to help with the vet bills for the ongoing care of your Pup.

check out Candadrugs online.com (I think the website might have changed, but search because i just heard ana ad onm the radio the other day.)

When our dog was sick we got his meds from Canada at about 60% off from walmart.

I'm very sorry to hear about this, John, that's a really tough situation to have to face.

Glad to hear Marty is responding well to treatment, hope it all works out for Marty and your family.

One thing to remember if you decide to do the insulin route your life belongs to your dog. You can't miss an injection. I tried it with a cat several years ago but he did not respond and eventually had to put him down after he went into a coma.

Best of luck I know how hard it is dealing with a sick pet.
