My poor old dog. I took him to the vet to get a couple teeth pulled, turns out he needed ALL of them pulled. Now he really is a toothless old dog.
Please don’t think I’m a horrible dog owner. I got my old dog from the vet five years ago. And before they let me take him home he had to get some teeth pulled. You see, apparently at some point during his life he was badly abused and so he started chewing rocks. This really damaged his teeth. So the shelter pulled a few. Then I had the vet pull ten (TEN!) a couple years ago. And now the vet had to pull the rest of them out.
Poor old guy. I can’t wait to go get him from the vet. And don’t worry he’ll still get chow, it’ll just involve more slurping and less chomping.
