So my darling little doggy (a senior boston terrier) has a bad tooth. It's all my fault too; I didn't have any luck trying to get him to let me brush his teeth when I first adopted him four years ago so I just stopped.
Now he has to get a tooth extracted. I took him to the vet today, because his bad tooth (that I wasn't aware of until this) just started bleeding! It was so scary. His extraction isn't until the 15th and all I can do for him if it bleeds more is apply pressure and clean out his mouth.
Has anyone else ever had dental surgery for their dog? I am nervous for him. She did a full check up on him and he is otherwise in good health. I just feel so guilty for neglecting his teeth. Never again!
He had his surgery and turned out perfectly fine! They did a whole dental cleaning as well, so that is a good start to a healthier little doggy mouth.
