Joeys going to the vet tommorow re: his teeth

March 7th, 2006, 09:27 PM
Joeys groomer called me today - and mentioned that I should have a vet look at Joeys teeth, as she says he has bad breath and his gums are receding.

When we first got Joey his former vet mentioned that one of his teeth were starting to decay and to keep an eye on it. Anyways I've been brushing Joeys teeth 3 times a week, and I give him either carrots or hard bones to chew on, of course he gets solid gold, and never any soft food.

I did notice the bad breath but honestly didnt think it was that bad just thought it was your typical doggie breath, guess I was wrong.:eek:

We are going tommorow - so will let everyone know what the vet says.

I hope all is well, just to let you know my moms dog has gone through it has to go again... Its not that bad, for the dog.... harder on the humans ...

I think the cleaning and getting 3 teeth pulled was close to 400$ so it is costly.

good luck to you!!!and joey!!
